My most recent VO audish was for a cross promo between the McGolden Arches and a baseball team- buy a value meal, get a cute discount on tickets.
The copy was a fun list of things you would do for tickets.... or you could just go to McGolden Arches!
This was a fun audish, but it was also another Crazy Cabbie day.
When my cab driver dropped me off, he said, "What is in these two buildings? I come here many times dropping off pretty ladies."
"Well, that door is a hair salon according to the sign. And this door is for a talent agency and a modeling agency, so you are probably seeing models."
"Oh that must be it."
"Yea, I actually have a voice over audition, so..." I said as I waited for my change, trying to imply that I needed to leave and that I was also a pretty and talented lady.
"I mean, I get some pretty ladies in my cab but some of these women I am just like, oh my God, they are so gorgeous I have never see such beautiful women." He was not interested in my voiceover career.
"Yea, that's because they are models. Could I get a receipt?"
We repeated this same exchange a few times before he gave me my change and the receipt.
I am definitely going to deduct this cab ride as a business expense on my taxes.
