Highly Distracting

While researching the numerous examples of the audio heaven that is Richard’s voice,

I came across the commercial adverts.

Something that I find myself doing a lot of,

is trying to guess the identity of the narrators in television commercials.

Often times I will recognize an actor by his voice alone,

and will then spend countless hours trying to figure out which character the voice belongs to.

The way they pronounce that certain word or phrase will end up driving me crazy until I figure it out!

Yes, I could just look it up on the internet but where’s the challenge in that?

Needless to say,

I like voices.

So I was very curious to see what kinds of commercials

Richard has lent his voice to.

I think the jewelry commercials are my favorite,

so sweet.

The Winter-Olympics one is nice too

because we know Richard has a personal fondness for skiing.

I’m not entirely sure what the “Santander” ad is about though

Santander

I get too distracted hearing the precise way Richard enunciates Santander

I keep saying it over and over again,

out loud.

(and also the way he pronounces customer)
