Thanks to Mark Evanier, I just watched a short that made me laugh and cringe at the same time. It's an example of a commercial voiceover session nightmare, with a voice actor taking increasingly insipid direction from an ad agency guy.

Most of my cringing was because I have memories of many years ago in my own career doing sessions just like this , where I had to fight the urge to jump through the glass and kill the moron on the other side because I still wanted to get paid -- even if the final product was complete crap and my throat was red and raw from forcing 70 seconds of copy into a 30 second spot.

Watch it yourself here.
