Brian Blessed Tom Tom Upgrade

Recommended Posts

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1300954/Brian-Blessed-drive-road-users-distraction-new-voice-TomTom.html

I bought my Tom Tom about 4 years ago (HP IPAQ Navman) , but haven't used it since I've had a built in Audi navigation system. However, the thought of a Brian Blessed upgrade might get me using it again.  A Tom Baker one would be quite good as well.

Now tell me, how can I develope such a distrinctive voice and get paid a fortune for doing voice overs.

Brian Blessed...I'm tempted. Mind you, I thought Ozzy Osbourne was funny for the first 50 miles of that drive to Fort William. :blink:

Scunnered, btw is your avatar taken from Zardoz starring Sean Connery?

Yes.

It's just I don't remember the Fez? A suitably weird and cool film.

You don't remember the fez?

I thought about downloading John Cleese for mine.... the demo sounds hilarious.... but I thought 10 Euros was a bit much.....

The lack of fezzes severely affected its eventual box office returns (IMO).

I can just imagine the Brian Blessed voice in action:

"Hawkmen, do you want to live forever? Run that red light!"

I've got Cleese on mine. You have to be careful if you have kids in the car though as he says stuff like 'turn right in a quarter of a mile, or 400 metres as we have to say these days, due to that little b4asterd Napoleon...'.

edit to get around swear filter!
