I believe they said "Press To Play " at the end, and that's the kind of thing that sets off bells in my brain.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8That guy looks like Daniel Radcliffe

After watching it I'm not too surprised that Paul's accent is pretty soft.  He's really good at imitating different accents.  As can be seen in this video and others:

I get the feeling based on what I've seen in other people and also my own experience, that people who are good at imitating other accents don't have a super strong natural accent and/or they tend to incorporate bits from many different accents. Whichever way it ends up with not pointing to a strong single accent.  Could be wrong on this, but that's what I've gathered in my life.

Why yes that is a picture of Paul dabbing. Deal with it.

Based on my own experience and others, I have to wonder having a musical ear might lend itself to fluidity of accent/an ear for accents as well.

It's also important to note that Paul's mum would also encourage Paul and Mike to speak 'the Queen's English' when they were kids.

That definitely applies to me as well. I've sung a lot in choir and I've had to sing different languages and even learned some basic IPA from that, so the nuances of pronunciation and how to physically construct a sound come up quite a bit. 

I think also with music there's a certain amount of pitch replication that comes into it.  I'm very good at remembering the pitches that someone speaks at.  Because of audiation, I focus on replicating the pitch from muscle memory rather than worrying about the distortion of hearing my own voice differently.

Not everyone that's good at music can do accents/imitate individuals.  It definitely has some overlapping advantages though.

Well he also said the Beatles were "possibly" the greatest band of all time. So clearly he's not a reliable source a-hard-days-night-george-10
