What American English Sounds Like & a Good Boogie Too!

Prisecolinensinenciousol, a parody by Adriano Celentano for the Italian TV programme Mileluci is sung entirely in gibberish designed to sound like American English.

Confession: having not read the description when I first watched this, I spent ages trying to figure out what he was saying. D’oh.

  1. This is fantastic! As a native English speaker (who spent a lot of time growing up in the States) I’ve always wondered what English sounds like to people who can’t understand it. Now if he would do a Canadian version so I can hear what I might sound like…

    • Haha, I’d like to hear a French Canadian version. Wow so you are doing another 12 books? Crikey and I am just trying to get one done. You are truly an inspiration. (and possibly just a wee bit crazy in the best possible way!!) Thanks so much for commenting!

  2. OMG I LOVE this! When I lived in Guatemala we had kids pretend to speak English with us. I was so confusing until we figured out what they were doing. This really sounds like English though.
