Spoken Scots video

What do people think about the way Dauvit Horsbrooch speaks in this video? Its an artificial register hes developed to help maintain the dialects of what were a separate language as a separate language from modern English.

Doctor Horsbroch is apparently language and Information officer at the Scots Language Association in Perth.

The joke is that his accent isn't actually that "broad" at all, and it's only got occasional links with the natural old fashioned Scots that is still spoken in rural areas. It seems to waver in strength as well.

Cud ainlie bide twa meenuts o yon auld farrant pish onywise.
