    The fact that I don't speak German, yet could fully understand the entire video with subtitles (that I am horrible at reading) is amazing, well worth watching some of the ones that aren't up on the English channel, even watching ones I know I've seen is a new experience yes there are subtitles in four languages, yes I am advertising a channel in its own comments section
