I'm starting a new category on this blog. This is something I've been thinking about doing for a while. I have noticed in the last few years that more and more companies are using celebrity voiceovers for their TV commercials. It started with Alec Baldwin doing just about every commercial but now other famous actors are the voices behind the commercials we see and hear every day. But most people don't realize this. And I happen to have a *gift* that enables me to identify voices extremely well. I looked around online and didn't find a significant repository of this information anywhere else so perhaps this blog can become that for other people who are odd enough like me to care.
So I'm kicking off this undertaking with a company whose ads are not all that exciting or sexy. In fact they're almost always just the company's logo and sometimes they have some animation but they always have the same voice.
and the voice is . . . Stockard Channing.
If you want to hear for yourself you can watch a number of their commercials on their website here (kudos to them for that).
