DJs and Voiceovers

Recommended Posts

Greg James does it for Dave TV. Chappers does it for that worlds worst sports accident show. Scott does it for TMF's top 40 and I'm sure Edith does it for Curry's adverts. I've onyl just realised how many of Radio 1's presenters do these things, are they trying to put voice over man out of a job? And can anyone think of anymore?

Zane does loads of adverts. One that springs to mind is the Kings of Leon new album plus quite a few others. Think he does more on mtv2?

I think most of the Radio 1 lineup exept from Moyles (yet) do adverts. Edith is on Comet not Currys BTW! Jo Whileys annoying voice is on most bands adverts, zanes is too but he sounds less like himself on them. Scott was on a commercial too recently but i've forgotten who for, could have been another band.

Yeah, I pretty sure he does do that one

Ima not too sure, sometimes it does sound like his voice but then other times not :|

They should have these things posted on a website!

We could always email the company. I emailed clearsil to find out what language the advert was originally recorded in before it was dubbed in english.

No. They're not.

They use them because people know the voice so when they're advertising their product, people think "aah, that's Greg from R1. Let's buy it"

Most voiceovers are radio presenters anyway. Only exceptional voiceovers can get a salary they can live off by just doing voiceovers.

Greg also does Keane's album.

Sara Cox also did the "if you smoke, your children are likely to smoke" adverts

Jo Whiley does the Next ad. Obviously they do lots of vo's for albums, like Jo did the Newton Faulkner ad.

One of the old Entertainment presenters then became a voice over artist as well.

Edit: Jo does Dairylea Dunkers as well

She did that skinny cow stuff too.

I remember The Script advert quite well that Jo voiced. "This is The Script - Ireland's hottest new band". Don't know why that sticks in my mind so much.

isnt it weird hearing a voice you recognise on an advert!

Surely they should be getting paid enough from radio, tv presenting etc to not need to do adverts as well? but I love the idea of Edith sitting at home surrounded by free comet goods!

They might very well get paid enough from the presenting work, it does their reputation no harm if they do (credible) adverts as well, and after all we all have bills to pay. Can you imagine how much Greg's car insurance must be? under 25 and a broadcaster lol

Depends he might be able to credit himself as a voiceover artist and get it cheaper.....
