Speaking in flawless and lightning-speed Mandarin with a distinct Shanghai lisp, this expat named Thomas from Germany comically impersonates his mother-in-law, father-in-law and wife in a short video. The mother-in-law brings up potential children, the father-in-law focuses on financial and automobile-related matters, and the wife wants him to carry her bag and spends too much time getting ready to go out.
