  • Me (Sep 18, 2018)

    I don't retain anything he ever says but I'm entertained nonetheless.

  • Alek (Apr 18, 2019)

    Jennifer Lawrence does what I call "a general nonexistent Eastern European accent"

  • Is Aid (8 hours ago)

    agree. her attempt to portray a russian leaves a lot to be desired. It felt like she had not enough time to perfect it. The accent and posture were absolutely horrible. Not for a second did i believe that she's russian. Pity... The production company spent all the money on Lawrence and none on an expert who could teach her.

  • Positive Echo (5 days ago)

    Lol. “General nonexistent.”

  • SMA2343 (Apr 22, 2019)

    Everyone: Hong Chau's Vietnamese accent is so racist!Hong Chau: I'm Vietnamese

  • 童茵茹 (1 day ago)

    Jennifer Tran Cantonese to be precisely.

  • fakecubed (2 days ago)

    Some people just want to be outraged.

  • RaidsEpicly (Apr 18, 2019)

    I love his casual Xhosa flex during the wakanda section, as he actually does the correct click. I'd love to see a video of him just doing some accents for fun and talking about them.

  • SHINJI GETS GROUNDED (Jan 8, 2019)

    I would entrust my life to this man

  • Grace Haven (May 12, 2019)

    🤨 rethink your life

  • thomas goldsmith (May 6, 2019)

    Ummm. I feel like that might not be great life decision material

  • Matthew Pezzulich (Sep 17, 2018)

    Please never end this series. The amount of knowledge and care this series has is incredible!!

  • mook_butt (Mar 15, 2019)

    100% agree

  • Kammy Hornsby (Feb 7, 2019)

    I love when people know a ridiculous amount about obscure things. Now I’m going to binge these vids

  • Kammy Hornsby (May 7, 2019)

    My Tuyen Phan Ah, I find that the term “inconsequential” may not encapsulate the feeling you’re trying to encapsulate. Doesn’t the premise of your argument stand on the foundation that knowledge in any subject whether common or uncommon, is never “obscure”. The word inconsequential suggests that the knowledge is of little importance or use. I’m sure that being knowledgeable about underground Peruvian artists would be of great use to, let’s say, an anthropologist with a doctorate degree that studies Sou...

  • My Tuyen Phan (May 7, 2019)

    Kammy Hornsby I would disagree with the word choice as obscure have certain connotations that don’t necessarily fit with the feeling I think you’re trying to encapsulate. A better word might be niche since it’s such a specific area of expertise but obscure would imply random and inconsequential like knowing obscure facts about underground Peruvian artists.

  • Charlie Wright (Feb 7, 2019)

    Jennifer Lawrence’s accent in Red Sparrow was tragic. It was just so over the top.

  • Einhorn Taschentuch (2 days ago)

    +boytoy we found the jlaw defender

  • Lily Pendergast (May 7, 2019)

    She’s new. She even said she’s never done an accent and Russian is hard (especially if you are worried about offending people)

  • Júlia (Mar 28, 2019)

    OH so erik’s got a tattoo?? AND a beard?? 100000x hotter

  • nora 노라 (May 1, 2019)

    I honestly want to speak to him in my Aussie accent just so he can break apart each difference or certain vowel I pronounce skjsksjs 😂✋🏼

  • Fatima De Orta (Apr 18, 2019)

    Júlia I want him to teach me EVERYTHING

  • Lily Collinsworth (Mar 1, 2019)

    Daniel Kaluuya's accent in Get Out blew me away! I had no idea he WASN'T American until I watched an interview. It's so cool to see him pull it off so effortlessly, especially after hearing, like, Benedict Cumberbatch try and fail so many times.

  • cooman77 (May 14, 2019)

    Alice Eve is another Brit who can absolutely nail an American accent

  • themetr0gn0me (May 13, 2019)

    Same, that's where I saw him first and I assumed it was his natural accent!
