The German language receives its fair share of ridicule for some of its crazy words and phrases, and while it may have a leg up in the longest words competition, the English language has its own set of oddities, as seen in this sentence alone (‘a leg up’).

Flula, a German DJ and comedian actor who you may know as the leader of the German a cappella group in this summer’s “Pitch Perfect 2”, has taken to his YouTube channel to bring attention to these not so easy to understand English phrases.

The videos will not only get you to think about some of the common phrases you may use on a day to day basis, but you will surely get some laughs out of watching Flula react to some of the craziest ones. His German accent also helps to put the icing on the cake.

Check out some of our favorite videos below, and be sure to follow his YouTube channel to get the latest releases.
