I have heard this guys voice in national radio ads since the mid 90's. I hate his voice and I think he invented the annoying habit of saying the 800 number 4 X in a row. Anyway I want to know who he is so I can send him an email to go away! Here is an example of his voice.

Give us a few minutes while we hold a seance to summon the spirit of the great, all-knowing commercial knowledge guru so he can impart that knowledge to us & we can pass it on to you.

Somebody'll get back to ya soon.



Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

I actually looked that up earlier.  Didn't find his name in iSpot.  And I wasn't really that compelled to look much further, as I don't find his voice particularly annoying.  In fact, it's pretty non-descript.  Just some voiceover guy.

I also wondered if the OP was some clever sort of spammer just trying to get us to look at the ad.

He calls himself "Joe Smith", but that's just a fancy stage name.

His real name is Bob Jones.

No I am not a spammer. I just heard the voice again in that commercial and remembered the name of the business. This guy does alot of voice work and I must know who he is. That commercial isnt bad. It was the only one I could find with his voice.

I just wondered if it was a possibility, especially considering it was your first post here at CIH.

They're joking about my opinion of his voice being "non-descript".

We joke a little bit here.

Actually, that wasn't the reason for it at all.

Those were just the two most common sounding names I could come up with to use as names that I know aren't his real name just in order to f**k with a newbie.

Why must everything always be about you????????

It's highly doubtful that you'll ever find his name listed anywhere because third-rate voiceover guys like that don't get credit for their "work".

Just a check for fifty bucks or whatever the union scale is.

You should've stuck with my explanation.  It would've made your use of those names seem more clever.

See??  It's not just all about me.  I'm here to empower you.  Because you're worth it!  Clap

Actually, looking back at the post, it's possible your "non-descript" description of the guy's voice might've played a role in the inspiration for my reply.

I really don't remember now as it was just so spur of the moment.

You may take some pride in the possibility you played a small role in inspiring the creation of one of my works of verbal art.
