Do you Virginians really talk like this?

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.

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.
