Project Main Details

Spoof Adverts x 3 
We've created 3 x Spoof Ads for a powertool company and need an accompanying voice-over, in the style of a David Attenborough narrated wildlife documentary.
This doesn't need to be an impersonation - it just needs to convey that friendly, impartial and 'teacher'-like aura of Attenborough in a middle-aged or older male voice.

The ads feature a friendly, but slightly dim, tradesman character with terrible fashion sense. The VO needs to be read 'seriously', to act as a counterpoint to the daft things that will be happening on-screen. The tradesman should be spoken about as though he were a wildlife specimen being observed in its natural habitat.

Script Details

This project has an extremely tight turnaround, and we're asking interested parties to submit a sample recording. Our client will then choose their favourite on Monday afternoon and it's done.

We won't be asking for any re-takes. Below are the 3 scripts.

Video reference: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujN4osRD22E&feature=fvst 

1. 'PANTS'

This is a tradesman. The tradesman is a hard-working
specimen who can often be found close to wood, bricks and kettles.

Watch how skillfully he smoothes this plastered wall.

Unfortunately, there’s still a nasty crack that needs covering

And there it is

Let’s see what happens when he is given a pair of the new AEG ‘Builders Bum’ pants

Without an instruction manual, the tradesman is momentarily confused

Let’s see what happens now

And there you go. Tradesman and tool, in perfect harmony.

The new AEG ‘Builder’s Bum’ pants – Difficult to sand with, but great for covering cracks

2. 'TAN'

There’s nothing a tradesman likes better than getting
outdoors and building something

But, for an ill-prepared tradesmen, the outcome can be disastrous.

And that’s where AEG ‘Builders Tan’ can help.

The patented formula blends seamlessly into burnt flesh.
At the same time, it creates a powerful UV barrier, meaning our tradesman can soon step out again, in confidence.

As long as someone helps him with his back.

The new AEG Builders Tan. Forget the shirt and give it a squirt.

And now in stock – the AEG Back-Applicator.


Tradesmen certainly do appreciate the qualities of the female form.

However, they often struggle to convey this with any subtlety.

Which is why AEG have created this ‘Wolf Whistle’

The special, patented sound attracts all women, and renders them blind with desire.

The new AEG Wolf Whistle - Every tradesman needs to get his blown.
