I am a huge fan of the Showtime series Dexter, as well as its leading actor Michael C. Hall. Therefore, I was pleasantly surprised to hear him doing voice-over work for Dodge (check out one of the ads here). That said, when I watched the ads, something didn’t feel quite right. Apparently I wasn’t the only one who felt this, and YouTube user JahRage seems to have fixed the problem:
Blogger Stan Collender makes an observation about the ads, noting that “you don’t hear Hall being Hall; you clearly hear Dexter. It’s the same cadence, same understated and unemotional tone.” I agree completely, and for me, that’s whats makes the added music work so perfectly. I’m not sure how someone who doesn’t watch Dexter will feel about the ads, but I think that they’re excellent.
How do you think the commercials compare? Share your thoughts in the comments section below!Feel free to tweet, link to, or otherwise share this post:
