Happy New Year from ProComm Voices! Without question, the first viral video to hit the web in 2011 is voice over related. Ted Williams, a homeless man in Columbus, Ohio, holds a sign on the side of Interstate 71 that says he has a “God-given gift of voice.” In a deep announcer voice, he recites a few lines on the spot for the cameraman. He has the “golden” radio voice! The video racked up over 4 million views in the first 24 hours.
Mr. Williams has become an instant celebrity: with an appearance on The Early Show and voice over job offers from the Cleveland Cavaliers, NFL, MTV, Kraft and more.
