Do you hear people doing impressions of characters in unexpected places?
Character voices, though generally confined to the booth, can be encountered in a number of places. That being said, conversations about characters or voice acting in public can be quite entertaining to listen to!
Have you ever witnessed such a thing?

Grocery stores are a great place to expect the unexpected. Down any given aisle, you may hear neat voices to imitate, accents you'd like to learn and maybe even some character impressions if you're in the right place at the right time!
On a recent trip, I overheard a debate between two staff members in the bakery section regarding which laboratory mouse was more sane, Pinky or the Brain. Following that, I and others within earshot, were treated to a Pinky and the Brain serenade. Not something that happens everyday but certainly not the only occurrence of such dialogue, I'm sure!
People are fascinated by voices and doing voices. I find it interesting that our little world of voice-over and voice acting has so much impact. The content people consume, especially content involving the human voice such as that found in cartoons, is retained for a long time and can even trigger deep emotions. No doubt happy childhood memories paid the two young men a visit as they sang the theme song from Pinky and the Brain. Oh, what a little "Narf" can do!
