    SCREW HIM. Makes me want to work twice as hard. And if he’s so good, why would he return to work by asking for another take? he should have nailed it in one. Eff ‘im!

  • Dave Collins May 19, 2009, 1:15 am

    Good stuff…that’s it…cab driver school here I come! 🙂

  • Rob Actis May 19, 2009, 1:15 am

    It made me laugh.

    scary part is, all humor aside, he’s right.

  • W.B. Ward May 19, 2009, 5:40 am

    Sounds like my ex-wife. Only with a higher voice.

  • John Watts May 19, 2009, 7:32 am

    Them’s fightin words in these parts.

    as my wife always reminds me , there is some truth in all humor. Phillip’s video makes me laugh but , oddly , I never once considered getting out of the voiceover business. Maybe i just don’t get it !! ( LOL)

    Never give up…

  • Sean Michaels May 19, 2009, 8:59 am

    Wellllll….hello Mr. Fancy Pants! I suppose for your next trick you’re gonna say that there’s too many radio announcers walking the planet.

  • Mark Gregory May 19, 2009, 9:00 am

    “More voiceovers than trees”, was someones recent comment, and I’m one of ’em Sean!

    Does this mean we get the “starving artist” tax credit?

  • Mark Gregory May 19, 2009, 9:02 am

    I’m looking that one up on-line now. And a timely reminder to get the demo reels off to the COI!

  • Arlene Tannis May 19, 2009, 9:03 am

    …. there are a lot of restaurants, hotels, cars, soda brands, beer brands, etc… and everyone has a favorite at different times of their life. You control your business… self-promote… best way of getting work where you live & in cyberspace!

  • Glen Pavlovich May 19, 2009, 9:04 am

    I agree with Phillip. And, more to the point… if these tired old-timers like Phillip Banks don’t retire and start collecting their social security, we’ll never make it.

  • Jennifer Vaughn May 19, 2009, 9:04 am

    That’s hysterical….lol

  • Drake Donovan May 19, 2009, 9:04 am

    Laugh cause it’s funny….cry because it’s true.

  • @buzzpark May 19, 2009, 9:08 am

    Hilarious, especially in the context of the current VO class we are taking!

  • T.J. Kelley May 20, 2009, 2:06 am

    If he gives me that knowing wink once more, I’m going to England to kick his ass……

    What’s w/ the red swollen eyes…does he ALWAYS hit the bong before going to work?

  • Dave DeHart May 25, 2009, 10:54 am

    Banksy is a true professional and a giant in our industry. The fact that some people can’t recognize the humor makes his “plea” even funnier. Besides… what would be wrong with having more cab drivers that can actually speak English?

    Some say that ‘British humor’ is often based on ‘understatement.’
    This plea to weed out the competition for work was superb! If it doesn’t motivate you to work with greater dedication and passion, then you didn’t get it.
