Gibberish that passes for American English

From my friend Grant Olson: What American English sounds like to non-English speakers.

These Italians appear to be imitating Bob Dylan’s style of singing. Does he sing like a typical American?

By the way, a few years ago I saw a video on youtube of a man faking several foreign languages such as Spanish, French, German, Italian and Russian. He’s just speaking gibberish, but if you don’t know the language it sounds like he’s really speaking that language. I cannot find the video on youtube. Has anyone seen the video I’m talking about?

    I have seen that also, but don’t remember the source. The performance was terrific and funny.
