Last month I did 20 commercials with Ty Pennington and I could just squeal. There, I said it. I've been trying to find a dainty or clever or daintily clever way of saying it, but nothing has come to mind and this news is verging on stale. So there you have it – I just did 20 commercials. With Ty Pennington. For those of you who have effectively killed their televisions (mine is stuck on PBS and I love it), he's the dude who hosts Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, yells into a bullhorn, and then makes viewers weep when they see how he’s improved the depraved lives of the family whose home is being remodeled that week. And before anyone asks – no, I don't know Ty now, nor does he know me. We were in completely separate cities when we recorded, and never interacted with one another. It follows then, much to the dismay of my 14-year-old sister, that I can't tell you what he smells like.
We split out the recordings over two sessions, the first of which had me regrettably on the tail end of a nasty cold; I was, however fully redeemed in the second session by being smokin' hot. Or at least something that resembled healthy non-suckage. The fellas talked football, I met them with blank stares. They laughed. Good times were had by all.
Anyway, 10 commercials for TV, 10 for radio, all location-specific, advertising Marketplace Events home shows with various HGTV star appearances and special attractions. The TV spots will be shown on HGTV, not sure about the market for the radio spots. Anyway, I am your friendly announcer for spots in New York, the Washington, D.C. area, Philadelphia, greater New England, Minneapolis, Denver, Oklahoma City, Indianapolis, and Des Moines, among others. You hear me, you hear Ty. That's it.
Samples or links or some kind of proof coming in the near future.
