Olympic fever has gripped the world, and we here at Voice Coaches are just as excited about the games as anyone. Every day since the Olympics started, there’s been water cooler talk about the previous night’s events, and there hasn’t been an unexciting evening yet. I thought it would be fun to take a look at a few really terrific commercials from the Olympics that feature some truly outstanding voice overs.

In the newest Miyazaki film, Ponyo, Liam Neeson has one of the lead roles, as does young Noah Cyrus (younger sister of Miley).
