What American English sounds like to non-English speakers

Prisecolinensinenciousol, a parody by Adriano Celentano for the Italian TV programme Mileluci is sung entirely in gibberish designed to sound like American English, I think it sounds like sleep talk. My brain keeps trying to make English words out of the gibberish but I know it's just being lazy and trying to make the sounds conform to something I can recognise. I actually quite like the beat and feel of this song and the dancing is quite superb!
