This L.A. Comedian’s Parody Video Of Mainers Will Crack You Up
Mainers never tire of impressions of ourselves, do we?
Check out this comedian's Maine accent. It's a little shaky at times, but he knows plenty about the 207 to give us a decent understanding of what he knows of the State of Maine!
Who is this guy?

Someone 'from away' impersonating a Mainer
His latest creation pokes a little fun at all of us here in Maine, and people are loving it, Since it was posted on Saturday, when we were getting pummeled by a snowstorm, it has racked up thousands of views.
He starts off the video in a way that will endear him to everyone in this area. He astutely takes note that our town is not pronounced “Banger”. He also uses the catchphrases of the state, such as "You can’t get theeeeyah, from heeeyah," "Upta camp," "Wicked pissah," "The way life should be", and of course, "Ay yuh."
All the Maine to jam into one four and a half minute YouTube video
Several topics that pertain to Maine are mentioned. Lighthouses, lobsters, fiddleheads, Moxie, red snapper hot dogs, Allen’s Coffee Brandy, Pat’s Pizza, Reny’s, Gifford’s Ice Cream, Hannaford, Funtown Splashtown USA, LL Bean, Acadia National Park. All of this happens in just four and a half minutes. Impressive. This guy really did his homework on this.
