A 19-year-old Finnish supermarket cashier, with millions of internet fans of her language imitation, is heading for America hoping her gibberish hit will open up a new career.

In two weeks, Sara Maria Forsberg's "What languages sound like to a foreigner" has drawn more than 9 million viewings, transforming her into a sought after celebrity that prompted the mayor of her hometown of Pietarsaari to hand her the town keys as a gesture of appreciation.

Mayor Mikael Jakobsson says she "likely is the most famous person ever" to have been born in the coastal town of 20,000 inhabitants.

Her agent says Forsberg is headed for Los Angeles at the end of the month after being contacted by numerous advertising related companies.
