If English Was Spoken Like German

Or, to put another way, if Yoda was from Bavaria instead of spending his years in Dagobah.

Nick Alfieri is an American football player who plays for Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns in a German football league. He's also a filmmaker who has produced a documentary about how he and a few other Americans came to a small town in Germany to build a great football team.

Alfieri has gotten to know Germany and speak German. Although his native English language is a Germanic language, there are notable differences between it and modern German. In this video, he converses with his girlfriend in an English that uses conventional German word order. It's intelligible, but weird.
