What is this stuff?

I had a super wierd audish last Monday before Thanksgiving. First of all it was for a european product described as energy cider. What does that even mean? Cider with lots of caffeine? This one was a dialouge so the guy I was reading with was there as well. Basically it was a pick up in a bar that was written like these people would never actually get along because they were not listening to each other while slightly arguing ... but it ends like this:

Guy: Cider, Cider, Cider.
Girl: Your place or mine?
Guy: I have toys.

The whole thing was a little creepy, but at least we all laughed a little when it was over.

Call for guest audish stories

Hey Everybody!

Perhaps everyone is getting bored with my sporadic vo audishes and I am sure you all have some great stories. So...I want to put out the call for guest audish blogs. Audishchicago is focused on audish stories so any fun, funny, embarrassing, successful, horrible stories you have about an audish are welcome.


Banking close to home

I recently had an audish for a regional Texas bank that was awesome. Point of view from a busy student who also works and really appreciates her bank's online action and extended hours. It was actually realistic and did not sound false or inflated. Maybe this is because I work all day and have about 5 things going on outside of 8:15-5, but I was all like, "wtf, this girl is just like me. I love my bank's online banking. I can online bank and transfer funds like nobody's business but my own. And it is my own banking business because it is a secure banking website. Bank, Bank, Bank."

Celebrity Endorsement

OMG you guys, I had an audish with Lance CuteYellowBracelet! Sortof.... Last Monday I had an audish for a sporting goods store where Mr. CuteYellowBracelet has a line of products coming out. This was a dialogue spot where two people are actually talking to each other, a convo between Becky 'the classic retail employee' and Lance. Sometimes they call in two people at a time and you read with each other. I guess Mr. CuteYellowBracelet was too busy because I read by myself this time. I did learn something from this one: "retail is like cycling. Your pedals are your hands. You use them to guide the customer through the road of sales opportunities."
Thanks, Lance!
