Videos about languages/accents?

Mods, please delete this if it isn't allowed. I apologize for cluttering the comm if it isn't.

I was wondering if anyone had any humorous/comedic videos about different languages or accents, just for entertainment purposes. Here are two:

Sketch about Scottish accents:


German accent commercial:


On that note, how long do you have to live in a country before you start picking up the regional accent? People keep mentioning that I'm probably going to pick up an accent abroad, but that doesn't seem probable to me. Even if I'm surrounded by people speaking a different way than I am, I wouldn't start mimicking them - at least not with the conscious realization that I'm mimicking an accent (correct me if I'm wrong.)

Also, thanks to everyone that helped me out on my last post! Much obliged.

    A coworker gave my dad this bottle of vodka (it has grass in it!), and I'm dying to know what the text says. Can anyone help?

    These are from a novel from Philip Roth. I'm sure the author doesn't speak Arabic, so presumably he had somebody to translate and transliterate…
