YAEPT: Woman imitates many English accents

A friend just pointed out to me this video:

I can vouch for the California accent (my native one, 1:39 - 1:44 of
the video) and the Seattle accent (where I currently live, 1:45 -
1:50) as being more-or-less accurate. People in the comments don't all
agree that her rendition of particular accents are good, though. YMMV.

I think this video just proves to myself that my ear really isn't all
that well-trained, despite knowing intellectually about phonetics; I
couldn't come *close* to imitating even one other accent convincingly.
I'd love to see a close IPA transcription of this video, if anyone who
*does* have a good ear is interested in taking the time. :)
