I’ve never encountered it in the wild myself; research suggests it is Rheinisch, which is def. not Austrian, but maybe the Redditors can confirm/deny?

The speaker's accent certainly sounds Austro-Bavarian to me.

DeepL breaks down here; “Achsel” is probably better translated with “shoulder” in this context, and “zucken” maybe more like “jerk” or “quiver”.

But anyways, yes, just sweet nothings.
