Former radio guy, MTV pioneer and E! Entertainment CEO Lee Masters loves “agent jokes.” Here’s one:
An agent is on the phone with a producer, pitching one of his clients. A minute or two into the conversation the producer interrupts and says, “Hey, wait a minute. You’re lying to me!”
The agent says, “Yeah, I know. But hear me out…”
When you begin a commercial with an obvious lie, you lose the entire battle:
No, you don‘t work at the pharmacy counter. You’re a voice actor. And everyone listening knows you don’t work at the pharmacy. They know that you are lying to them.
“It packs the power of Advil with a strong decongestant.”
Yep, that’s exactly how my pharmacist speaks. How about yours?
Oh, and I guess the music that comes in at :10 is being piped into the pharmacy?
