How German sounds compared to other languages

(CBSNews) Ever notice how Germans sounds so severe? The German language is very intense, full of harsh vowels and long, hard-sounding words. Now that doesn't make it bad, per se, just different than say English, Spanish, French or Italian. To see just how different, watch and learn from the humorously-educational video above posted by The Copy Cat Channel.

See! One of those words, was definitely not like the others. My favorite word differentials may be pen and science -- so funny! On its YouTube page, Copy Cat invited viewers to, "Experience how awfully harsh German sounds in comparison to other (more beautiful?!) languages!" Now, I won't go so far as to say that German is not beautiful, let's just call it more complicated. And if you like the video above, check out Part 2 below for even more words (said, again, in the most ridiculous stereotypical outfits and accents ever -- and by ridiculous, I of course mean hilarious).
