May 21, 2012 2:00 pm Just a little rant…
On last night’s Watch What Happens Live!, MissAndy recruited the “talent” of Randall, the HoneyBadgerGuy, to do some voiceover work for a video collage of Kathy Wakile’s sister, Rosie.
I got some real problems with Randall, the HoneyBadgerGuy.
First, there is absolutely no creativity involved in what the HBGuy does… anyone can voiceover comments. IMO, Randall got himself one HUGE break when he was asked to do the voiceover work for the HoneyBadger commercial. There are thousands who have equally or better VO talent from which the HB commercial creators could have chosen… and Randall was simply the very lucky one chosen.
Don’t get me wrong… Randall did the VO work for the HoneyBadger commercial beautifully… however, ANY voiceover artist could have done the same. Also, don’t get me wrong about Randall steppin’ into a great pile of recognition and onto further gigs from his HB work… good for him. For some unknown reason, MissAndy is smitten with Randall and has used his services since February for various HWs voiceover projects.
What is so irritating about Randall is that what he does is neither funny nor creative. There are far more VO artists who ARE funny… AND creative… who could be doing a much better job with the HWs videos MissAndy has selected.
One person who does a fabulous job is Ronnie/flipit from TVGasm… Ronnie is a honey badger when it comes to outdoing Randall! Ronnie is way out in front of the HBGuy when it comes to inserting the “funny” in HWs videos… Ronnie is not only FUNNY, but it takes a lot of CREATIVITY to write the script and perform not just one voice, but several!
Ronnie’s videos are always featured on SH… and, yes, we are biased here towards Ronnie! Would LOVE to see what Ronnie would do with the same material the HBGuy was given! If MissAndy should have the opportunity to see Ronnie’s talent, I’m certain that MissAndy would be either switching or rotating which VO talent is used for his HWs videos!
Just a sample of Ronnie/flipit’s work… just in case you’ve not caught them previously on SH…
