Prisecolinensinenciousol - Adriano Celentano

Prisecolinensinenciousol, a Parody by Italian Comedian Adriano Celentano for Mileluci on Italian TV.   He made up this gibberish and dance to make fun of what English sounds like to Italians.  Hilarious!  You can almost "hear" English words that aren't there.

And the DANCE NUMBER!  Imitating Americans doing a GROOVY Dance Number,
You will share it with your friends after you see it.  I especially love the angular bodies and head tosses and struts/mirrors, the harmonica, all the visual gags making fun of Americans of the era.  Just like the Romans thought that all non-Latin speakers sounded like baahing sheep, therefore the word Bar-Bar-ians meaning uncouth, these modern Italians have quite a funny fake Elvis sounding version of AmEnglish.  By the way, the Japanese think Americans sound like barking dogs!  And their term gaijin translates roughly to "round eyed bastards".  Hahaha!  I love finding out this stuff.

If you have never gone on YouTube and searched for videos of non English practicing their English speaking and accents, it's HILARIOUS.  Check it out.  That's how I found this video.
