Richard Armitage, pitchman — partial retrospective
Here is a trajectory of Richard Armitage’s previous pitches for projects he’s been involved in. I’ve put the videos below, but earlier commentary is found here and here. There are several more that I remember but haven’t located yet. Will update. The general trajectory seems to be toward less embarrassment with the medium, although in 2013 there were stil signs of discomfort. At the same time, I feel like the later vids are extremely, hmmm. Lacking in something. Energy? Personality? Part of that is the medium, of course, which asks for a particular kind of polish from the speaker.
