A recent e-mail correspondence reminded me to post another promotional tape containing the various voice actors who work for an advertising agency, in this case, Tranuim, Robertson and Hughes. I'm not sure I have all of the spellings right for these men, but I'm sure that if I don't, someone out there will offer up a correction.
Spliced onto this same reel is a 28 minute long segment which is somehow both fascinating and tedious. You may be aware of these scams where people are invited to watch and rate a new TV show, only to be shown some pilot which was rejected by the networks - the real point of the exercise being to conduct a focus group afterwards in which one or more of the advertisements is discussed.
I wonder at what point the men and women in this group realized that they were probably never going to be asked about the show they had just watched, but instead, that they were there to see their reactions to a commercial for the new Bic Banana pen. There is no way I would have lasted even the half hour captured here - and since the tape runs out mid-sentence, there's no telling how long the discussion continued, or if this was just the first of several commercials to be discussed.
