Universal Studios has a new Back To The Future video game that highlights an area of voice overs that isn’t really focused on all that much: celebrity voice replacement (or “soundalikes.”).
I like these new ads from MSNBC; they’re inspirational, patriotic, and thought-provoking, all while remaining positive. And they feature some great VO work to boot!
Voice Coaches was very sad to hear of the passing of actress Barbara Billingsley this weekend. She returned to American airwaves in the 1980s as a voice actor, appearing as Nanny in over 100 episodes of the hit Jim Henson Company/Marvel Comics Productions animated series Muppet Babies.
There have been about a million parody videos of the Old Spice “Man Your Man Could Smell Like” commercial, but this newest one features some impressive VO work from one of the masters in the field. Yes, that is Grover, in a new ad for Sesame Street that brilliantly parodies the Old Spice commercial.
This week in Voice Overs of the World, we have a couple of spots from Apple Auto Glass, who are apparently experts in replacing car windshields. They’re also experts in making clever advertisements that feature a nice play on the classic “educational/instructional film” style of delivery.
They say that laughter is the best medicine, and we here at Voice Coaches agree with that. So, apparently, do Sierra Mist, John Smith Beer and a third company who I’ll leave unnamed so as not to spoil the payoff at the end of their clever commercial.
