Dodge Charger Ad: Dexter Edition

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!
