Do you Virginians really talk like this?

Loudoun County News, Weather and Sports from Loudoun Times-Mirror

I'm picking on an old firend I grew up with in Leesburg.
We moved out of there in 1973.
Michael "Moe" Murphy was my schoolmate and best friend when we left.
I reconnected with him a couple years ago on Facebook and follow his stuff on the Loudon Times.
I crack up watching that video knowing that I may have eventually grown up talking that way.
It may sound normal to some of you but jeez, he sounds like a character from Deliverance.

The first time I went to VA (VA Beach) I was shocked at how thick the Southern Accents were. But of course, with the accent came the usual friendliness that the South always provides.

My mother used to always say "Fah-jen-ya" instead of Virginia.

That guy sounds more Mississippian than Virginian to me.

Um, No, I grew up here all my life and have never heard anyone talk like that. I'm a Northern VA native though. However I have heard some Southern VA natives talk like they were from Tenn. or Georgia.

I also don't stand like he does. lol. He might have been nervous but he needs to relax. lol. I do use "aint" though. lol.
