Doesn't the voiceover guy sound like he's a little slow and not that smart? How do they advertise for this job? "Need a voice that sounds like you're borderline retarded?"

I swear I wonder how some of these people get work. They couldn't find anyone with a better voice? Or do companies purposely get annoying people to annoy us? If you met this guy in person, you'd most likely be like, "Please stop talking. No one wants to hear it." Angry

Yeah!  That guy sounds like he rode the short bus to commercial school.  What I don't get, this commercial has been out for years, What does "Hey, me towel, Sue towel" mean?

Me and you and a dog named Sue?  Confused
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

It's a play on "Mi casa es su casa" which is Spanish for "My house is your house," another way of saying, "Make yourself at home."

Gain Guy should've said, "Mi toalla es tu toalla."

Baha Men's "Who let the dogs out?"

I addressed this exact thing on a separate forum topic and MAN i hate this bumbling vocal doofus--i think he is a really ugly character actor that used to pop up on sitcoms in his youth. Highly mutable

Thank you. I made a post about it too but I wasn’t able to describe my hatred for it like you did. You described my feelings for this voiceover perfectly

This guy sounds EXACTLY like the late Lorenzo Music who voiced Garfield and Peter Venkman in the Real Ghostbusters cartoon. If they ever do a reboot of it or make another Garfield movie or TV show they should hire this guy!!

i don't think hes Garfield--i know my search failed-for some reason its HIDDEN..i can picture the doofus from some shows(probably QUALITY viewing like Saved By The Bell or Single Guy) where he showed up--he seems to have been smacked in the forehead by a 2x4 a few times and WOW-VOCAL TALENT!!

I did not say he voiced Garfield, I said that Lorenzo Music voiced Garfield, and that the Gain Commercial guy sounds exactly like Lorenzo Music, so now that Lorenzo Music is dead, they should hire the Gain guy to do Garfield.

"I resemble that remark." --Garfield

But seriously, I don't hear a resemblance between Lorenzo and the Gain guy. Maybe it's the inflection. I agree with the O.P.

That would be fair enough but agreeing with the OP has nothing to do with whether the Gain guy sounds like the Garfield guy. I think you may have experienced cognitive dissonance whereby your dislike of the Gain guy's voice prevented you from acknowledging that he sounds like Garfield because you likely don't hate the Garfield voice.  So you decided that since you hate the Gain voice, and you don't hate the Garfield voice, they can't possibly be similar. But they ARE very similar, whether you want to acknowledge it consciously, subconsciously, or otherwise. They're not exact, the Gain guy has a bit more of a 'phlegmmy'' tone than the Garfield guy, but take away the phlegm and I doubt anyone would be able to tell the difference in a double-blind test.  
 
Incidentally, I hated Lorenzo Music's voice from the first time I heard it (as Carlton the doorman on Mary Tyler Moore) and for the next 20 years after. Gradually it stopped bothering me, and I can accept it now, which is probably why I can accept the Gain guy as well.

An interesting article on a related phenomenon, the confirmation bias (which probably everyone has, myself included):

Wow I was expecting you to come back with a volley of insults, but instead you posted something interesting, well done! Who would have thought the most reasonable people would be found on the "Commercials I Hate" forum??!

Someone gave me a bunch of shirts that had been washed in Gain. I couldn't get the stench out of them.
