White Guys Bargain in Perfect Mandarin at Chinese Market, Amaze Vendors

My friend Evan and I, two white guys who speak extremely good Mandarin, some Cantonese, and a little bit of Fuzhounese, went bargain hunting and haggling at the dry goods and vegetable markets of NYC Chinatown. A veritable market spree! We walked up to various Chinese vendors, started speaking with them in English, and then switched over mid-conversation to Mandarin and Cantonese (and Fuzhounese once or twice!). Their reactions were hilarious! Hope you enjoy this day in our lives! And hopefully this is helpful to you guys in your language learning journeys!
This is Part 2 of our day shopping in Chinatown - be sure to click on the card in the video for Part 1!

    i love how instantly they stop seeing you as a brick wall, i guess I would describe it..and see you as a human being... which in turn does the same for our eyes... I am always fascinated by those who can speak another language.. i bet you dream in their language more than english..or am I wrong?
    when i was in high school i chose German.. it was difficult for me so the next year i took french, messed with my head even more

    I wish that my grandparents taught their children the language they were born into , which was German.. but they didn't... it is such a shame that parents do not teach their children to know more than one language .. I on the other hand couldn't do that for mine.. I only speak english fluently...

    I have always wanted to know what it would be like to not understand english.. to hear what my language sounds like to others that do not speak it
    once i had a dream where i got to know what it was like.. i knew that others were speaking english but i couldnt understand them .. but it was a dream so it is hard to remember how cool it was

    any way I really wish i could speak the languages you can speak... I love the way they sound... so much better than french... I think Russain is awesome to...
    i really wish i could hear english and not be able to speak it.. i want to know if it sounds cool like others do to me..ya know?

    I just think this is stupid.... obviously I'm not in the majority since it has 6.25 million views. But why shouldn't anyone be able to speak Chinese. That the Chinese are surprised only shows how small minded many can be. Sometimes in rural Chinese communities when a person with Blond hair shows up.... the Chinese, without asking permission will just walk over and touch and smell your hair. Like you're a dog or something.

    I had a really good joke at Xiaoma's expense.... But it's the kind of joke that is rude and offensive if you don't know the person. If he was my buddy he would laugh. If I saw him in person I could relay it via interpretive dance and he wouldn't be offended. He would see it was coming from a place of bonded endearing ribbing. I'll just explain the dance as best I can..... Way too much hip gyrating and constant unwavering eye contact. It's the dance of brotherhood.

    10 years is a long time to learn a couple of languages. I learned the universal language of interpretive dance in one night during a fever dream. Now everywhere I go people know my intentions...... People don't seem to want to interact with me..... Not sure why.
