Non Union NYC based talent needed for Groupon 
**Only interested in NYC based non-union talent available to record at studio in the Upper West Side anytime between 10a - 6p ET on Thursday- 4/18, Friday- 4/19, or Monday- 4/22.**

Non-Union VO needed for 7 TV test spots :60, not broadcast or public use. Hence, we're working with a very small budget.

Please be advised that talent will only be considered if auditions are recorded with the following script and the role for which you're auditioning is indicated. Thanks and best of luck!


A AVO: 40-55 year old, male, typical "anthemic," big advertising voice, think Alec Baldwin (Capital One spots), sharp wit w/o being too much of a smart ass, has a naughty streak and is a little self-referential

CG4 SA: mid/late 30s, female, everyday, normal, girl next door, not too stylized

CG4 D: 50s, serious, unemotional but still friendly, not announcer-like

CG4 ST: mid/late 30s, female, inspired

S W: late 30s, female, professional, little more serious, slightly deeper voice than CG4 SA, a more comforting vocal style, similar to Columbia McCaleb (see, believable and trustworthy

S C: late 30s/early 40s, male, should read with a legitimate French accent but a bit humorous

CG1 I: mid/late 30s, male, in the moment, inspired

CG1 GG: 40-50 year old, male, compassionate, caught up in the moment

CG1 PG: 25-35 year old, male, slightly gruff, but “I’ve always loved you” could be in a softer tone

GGHGD VO: 35-45 year old, male, amicable, easy going, not too announcer-like, very guy next door

SCRIPT (Feel free to offer a variety of reads):

A AVO: At Groupon, we don’t believe the best things in life come to those who wait.
We believe the best things in life come to those who seek. To the restless.
Like these people!
Just running to be running.
At Groupon we don’t just believe in the seekers.
We exist for them.
So we’ve made finding the best things in life easier. A simpler way to search, more to search for, and plenty of surprises along the way.
Like samurai sword lessons. Didn’t see that one coming, did you?
Craving a happier happy hour? Just click on it.
Need a hot stone massage? No problem… simply type in hot…stone…massage.
Interested in something as important as whatever it is this person is doing…
Good news… you’re just a few clicks away from that too.
So will you sit and wait for what you want, or will you search for it?
Because remember, the best things in life are out there, just waiting to be found.
Well, whattaya know? Spontaneous choreography.
[Read more charming] Make the most of your time—no matter how much you have left.

CG4 SA: Shhhhhh.
It’s now or never.
Mom. Dad. It’s time you heard the truth. I’m not a lawyer. I just have a passion for arguing.
Can we, [signaling with her hands to hurry up] I don’t have much time.
Ok, Doc. Lay it on me.
Fencing Class it is!
I know.

CG4 D: Sarah, I just received your test results and –
Like I was saying, I received your results and everything is just fi---
I’m very sorry to tell you this, but you only have another 50, maybe 55 years left. [pause] I imagine you’ll want to take care of a few things.

CG4 ST: So brave...

S W: Groupon can get you a chakra-healing massage for nearly half off.
But maybe you’re not into massage. Because you’re a dude. Or a germaphobe. Or maybe you think “chakra” is a lady singer from the 80s.
Don’t delete me just because I’m not the deal for you.
Search Groupon and choose from hundreds of deals...
From skydiving and soap making to deals on stuff you do everyday.
So go ahead. Find the deal that’s right for you.
Start your Searchpedition. Arrive at what you want.

S C [with French accent]: …gonna make sure your mise en place is in a much better place

CG1 I: So brave.

CG1 GG: It’s the least I could do.

CG1 PG: Pepperoni, extra garlic. I’ve always loved you.

GGHGD VO: So let's say you want to have a good day-- no, a GREAT day. Groupon can help.
Step One: Wake up-- off to a good start, considering the alternative.
Step Two: Make today different. Don't go to work. Don't eat your usual bowl of oat dust for breakfast.
Step Three: Search Groupon's tons of deals to find what you're looking for.
Hey, what about that bagel place near the park? You can eat a bagel in the park. That park with dogs.
You can pet a good dog. But not a bad dog.
What time is it? 2pm? You can search Groupon for a neighborhood bar. Have a glass of wine. You know what they say, it's Christmas somewhere.
Finally you can wind down by searching Groupon for a museum to learn about Napoleon's violent march through Europe. Sacre Bleu! What a great day.
Thanks Bagel, Thanks Dogs. Thanks Napoleon's Unshakable Thirst for Power. And Thanks Groupon.
