looks very danish
also notice the way he pronounces the d's, to me this sounds like some half-assed attempt on danish

Yeah, but the -a in e.g. kåmma? Not very Danish...
But the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright Brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.

Any idea as to the speakers' native tongue? What phonetic features make it sound foreign?

I'd like to contribute, but can't download the audio (it seems that the filesharing service is down, and the domain is for sale...).

Now, that's interesting!
Well, I've heard that Icelanders invented a language {which was very similar to Danish) in order to communicate easier with continental Scandinavians. I believe it was called "Skandinaviska" So this could be the case...

There is such a language already, called Norwegian (Bokmål), to invent one would be quite unnecessary ;)
Swedish (sv) native; English (en) good; Norwegian (no) read fluently, understand well, speak badly; Danish (dk) read fluently, understand badly, can't speak; Faroese (fo) read some, understand a bit, speak a few sentences; German (de) French (fr) Spanish (es) forgetting; heritage language, want to understand and speak but can't.
