I'm pretty good with English accents, but I wish I had such a fluency in other languages so I could hear their accents. I'm fascinated by the concept of someone speaking, say, German with a Southern American accent, or a French accent. I'll never be able to hear it, of course, but I wish I could.
Here is a humorous video from one of my favorite youtubers Trixie (DontTrustTheRabbit) demonstrating 12 different German dialects. She's really quite good at it. Can you hear the differences?

And here's a classic sketch from Peter Frankenfeld reading the weather forecast in the dialects of the regions/cities he's pointing at.
