Aharrr! No, it's not Talk Like a Pirate Day. That's the title of this really, really funny and wonderfully done British film that runs 13 minutes. It's about an actor called into a recording studio to do the voiceover narration for a radio advertisement on behalf of a boat supply shop. The sponsor/director keeps making things worse and worse. And worse. Stick with it through the credits at the very end.
I've sent this to friends who've done voice-over work, and they love it and think it's a total hoot, but they also say it's almost painful to watch because as exaggerated as it is, it's so close to the truth.
The actor who stars in it, Jonathan Kydd, also wrote the script. I suspect it comes from deep and teeth-gnashing experience.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
