This is not 普通话, is it?

大家​好, can you tell me what they are singing in the following video? Every sign is pronounced differently, so I figured it can't be standard mandarin. Is it a dialect or something else? 谢谢

You should just search “喜气洋洋 钟盛忠 钟晓玉”, then you can find they are Malaysians.
Then you can find this:

You can see Hokkien, Hakka, Cantonese, Teochew may be the answer. You can find songs in these languages (or dialects) and find their differences.
The answer is Hokkien.

    Hi Good day. This is not a mandarin song. It is a Cantonese - Chinese New Year song. Singers are from Malaysia.

    I am sorry, but your answer is wrong, this song is in Cantonese. People in Guangdong Province(my hometown) and Hongkong speak a lot in Cantonese.
