Richard Armitage with especially crisp “t” sounds

Via Maybe it’s not the phone book, but still pretty good!

  1. Nice! 😀

  2. Ah. There it is. Unmistakable voice.

  3. The italian one too,please. 😉

  4. Now the man’s got me listening to ads over and over and over. That voice!!! 😀

  5. I wish he could be the Siri voice on my iPhone. I recently switched the Siri voice to the male with British accent, and it has made all the difference! Now I find myself making all sorts of phone calls and texts while I am driving, just so I can order this British guy around. Lol!

  6. Lol, oh well, if I can’t have the phone book (or Fedora lady’s shopping list ) this is a good consolation prize. 😕 Hahaha.

  7. Sales resistance is futile. I’ll take it. And I don’t have a tv. Well, not a smart one, anyway.

  8. Amazing when your voice alone can become a gold mine!

  9. It always like his voice but it sounds very stilted to me. I think our Australian ads must be much more casually spoken in general.

    • In Australia, you have the delicious Nathan Page doing voiceovers for BMWs and other stuff. He’s no slouch in making ovaries go boom with his voice.

  10. Lovely listening. Just the way he says “Q”. Oh, man!!
    Those dragons keep following him around, in one form or the other – (Sorry, couldn’t help myself). I hope you all have lovely weekend 🙂

  11. I think it’s interesting, the associations that people make with any particular pronounciation — I picked the “t” out because to me, that makes the whole thing elegant (and I think that’s Sky’s market — they are looking for people who want to pay more for tv) — because I mainly hear the “t” dropped in my everyday life.

  12. I think it may be catching our attention because normally if we hear a T, with a strong pronunciation, it’s in anger, “Don’T speak to me”, or “No, no Thanks”. Otherwise, it’s a much softer D sound. Either way, it’s like a drug. I’ve played it over and over, it just melts everything else away.

    • Thanks for the comment and welcome. Yes — Americans often drop their “t”. Unless they live on certain parts of the east coast, I believe. And of course, I’m crazy about Armitage’s failure to do the alveolar flap, so “t” fits into that really well.
