What if the people who did the voice overs for our ads, sounded like that in everyday life? Flipping Funny.

When I was at University, in Durban, I was introduced to an animated series called ‘MONKEY DUST‘. It is pretty ‘dark’ but, my shit, it is FUNNY. You really can’t comprehend it’s intensity until you’ve watched more than a few episodes, but I really wanted to share this one scene with you.

You don’t have to have a background in drama or radio to know a good or bad voice over when you hear one, there is the soft and medium sell and then the hard sell which comes across like “THAT. MAN. WHO. SOUNDS. LIKE. EVERYTHING. IS. JUST. THE. BEST. THING. EVER.”

I remember seeing this scene for the first time and thinking how amazing it would be if all those voice over men and women spoke like they do in ads, in everyday life… myself included! 🙂

So, here it is. An average day for the ‘voiceover guy’. In this scene he goes for an audition. haha.

Enjoy 🙂
