Has a Voice Over recording ever surprised or frightened you when you least expected it?
It is quite possible to be caught off guard by a voice over, regardless of how nice it may sound or how safe the venue.
Hear my story and then share yours!
A few weeks ago while grocery shopping, I was pushing my cart up and down the aisles, picking out some potato chips, minding my own business.
Let it be documented that I was alone at the time.
As I left the aisle, I must have walked passed a sensor that triggered a voice over recording. The female voice over asked me if I was getting enough fiber in my diet, and given the circumstances, it literally made me jump!
The voice over itself was well done and wasn't scary, however, the timing of when it played as I hastily moved on was just enough to make me uncomfortable and do a double take.
Have you ever had an uncomfortable or irregular encounter with a voice over?
Looking forward to hearing your stories!
