I like to think of Germán as the slightly more outrageous Spanish version of Norman - and not just because their names are so similar! Germán definitely fits into the "Norman" genre, as the majority of his videos are comedic interpretations of everyday issues/occurences/observations. However, Germán takes his videos to the next level with hilarious skits (complete with ridiculous costumes and impressions) that depict his observations. Germán's incredibly fast talking speed adds to the humor by giving his videos a sense of ridiculous urgency and importance, even though their subjects are often laughable.
HolaSoyGerman is absolutely hilarious, a knee slapper. He uses deadpan humor, slapstick humor, puns, and impressions to crack the audience up. Personally, I can watch tens of videos without getting sick of his comedic routines or his rapidfire jokes, but for some his videos might feel a bit exhausting. Comedy fans and fans of Norman should definitely check out German!

This is by far one of the most difficult spanish youtube channels out there. Germán talks faster than the speed of light, making his videos incredibly difficult to understand without subtitles. Because of his expressive gestures and skits, one might be able to distinguish what he is saying without the help of subtitles, but for the most part I would strongly suggest watching with subtitles (which are available for nearly all of his videos).
