two questions:
1) can you change the guy that made the voiceover?
2) where is the girl in short red dress? there is a tradition to follow in these promos

Moshe the little red dress wouldn’t be work place health and safety approved. and the guy who does the voice over makes the machine.

both are pretty poor excuses.
I think it has huge contribution to the workers health (unless YOU wear it).
as for the voice over, you don’t have to be a sheep to be a shepherd…

And here I thought that He did a very good job,, btw I didn’t do the voice over.. It would have been a lot worse.
Lucky He didn’t wear the red dress.

It is sad, but good voiceover is made by professionals… but don’t ever let them handle the router!
His voice lacks enthusiasm. I am sure he feels it, he just fail to express it. anyway, its just my opinion, and I am a ratbag.

I have nothing against him… And if i was to do the voice over it would have been worse.

The only thing I noticed with the voice over was the pronunciation of aluminum (a-loom-in-um) he says (al-u-mini-um), I had to stop and think…Oh yeah, they talk funny in Australia.

I think the voice over was good, but what do I know about advertising, nothing. You’ve done an awesome job putting this video together, the company should give you a few promo machines to share with your friends. I’ll pay the shipping. LOL

If I designed and built that machine I’d use any voice I wanted! That is one nice piece of machinery!
And…I’d wear anything I wanted!
That will sell no matter what!
by the way…voice was ok but your outfit could use some help! ;-)

I thought it was informative and helpful.
I didn’t think the voice-over needed to be changed but in the beginning where he says: “Never before, until now…” is redundant.
Up here in the US many of the DIY shows have hosts who are from Australia so we are getting used to the accent.
But in a future version it will probably need to be voiced over in Spanish if you want to sell many of them ;>(
