(1) Latest punch-out: Gingerbread man commercial. I don't even know who it's for.
(2) Hitched up the Conestoga around 1 pm Friday, fired up the Philco, and when the sports talk came on, after a few seconds I said to myself: "What's Corby doing on the air middays?"
Of course, it wasn't middays and, shockingly, it wasn't even The Ticket. It was The Fan. (I must have punched over during a gingerbread man commercial before exiting the wagon the last time.)
And, of course, it wasn't Corby. But it was a guy who sounded just like him. He talked a little faster and he wasn't offering Corby's more reptilian content, but the timbre and even the little break in the voice was startlingly Corbylike. It was him and another guy, neither of whom I recognized, and neither of whom was Mark Elfenbein. I tried to hear them call one another a name, and the only thing I came up with is that the Corby-guy might possibly have been named Kevin.
(3) All right, this one's way, way out there.
You know that ad for Bar & Book at Lone Star Park in the form of a news report where all of the anchors and the chick on the scene are astounded that wagering might be taking place there? (The one where the chick says "Uh, I don't have the angle" and they end up calling the lawyer who says that betting at Bar & Book is AOK and probably fun, too.)
I was listening to Alexis doing a traffic report and I was startled at some vowel-consonant combination of one kind or another and I thought -- where have I heard that funky sound before? And I realized it was the Lone Star Park reporter chick. Now I know, I know that Alexis's traffic reports don't sound like the reporter chick, but if Alexis hammed it up for a voiceover, maybe?
And anyway, it gives me an excuse to run a picutre of Alexis, which is always good for some Google image-search hits.
Hope to have something better for you soon. Not better than Alexis, just better MTC content.
