Dr Seuss’ Oh The Places You’ll Go is a fun book to read. It zigs and zags and weaves through the English language in typical Seuss fashion with a kind of slapdash and exciting momentum. Apparently, however, when it’s read with accents, it’s somehow even better.
At least that’s what popular YouTube user BrizzyVoices proved last week when she recorded herself reading the classic text in sixty-eight different accents. As she plows into each, the video conveniently identifies each one, and while all are over the top and highly stereotypical, there’s something pretty endearing about the whole thing. Besides, it’s really impressive that she actually tackles regional dialects, as opposed to just doing one generic accent for some countries, which is difficult in and of itself.
Of course, Brizzy is far from the first person to find YouTube fame with goofy voices. Comedian Brock Baker has attracted quite a following with his impersonations and current Saturday Night Live castmember Jay Pharoah was actually famous on YouTube before he got called up to the beloved variety show.
