Brian Blessed to record very loud personalised voicemailsJanuary 28th, 2013 • 8 Comments
HELLO EVERYBODY! BRIAN BLESSED IS TO CHANNEL HIS USUAL SUBTLETY, AS SEEN IN FLASH GORDON AND BLACK ADDER, AND RECORD A SOME PERSONALISED VOICEMAIL MESSAGES FOR CUSTOMERS ON HTC WINDOWS PHONE 8 KIT.
OF COURSE, THIS ISN’T THE FIRST TIME BLESSED’S BOOMING VOICE HAS BEEN UTILISED FOR TECHNOLOGY AS HE RATTLED THE SPEAKERS WHEN HE NARRATED DRIVING INSTRUCTIONS FOR TOMTOM SATNAVS!
OH, OH, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
SO, BASICALLY, IF YOU’RE ONE OF THE FIRST 100 PEOPLE WHO BUY A NEW WINDOWS PHONE 8S BY HTC, or kiddiekins, if you prefer a WINDOWS PHONE 8X BY HTC (BETWEEN MONDAY 28TH OF JANUARY AND MONDAY 4TH FEBRUARY AND TWEET @O2, USING THE HASHTAG #BRIANMAIL, YOU’LL END UP WITH A BESPOKE MESSAGE.
BLESSED YELLED: “I’M THRILLED TO BE LENDING MY VOCAL TALENTS TO THE GOOD FOLK AT O2. I’M PLANNING TO HAVE A LOT OF FUN WITH THE VOICEMAIL MESSAGES AND LEAVE THE CALLED AMUSED, CONFUSED AND GENERALLY BEWILDERED!”
David Johnson of O2 said: “Brian Blessed’s a cult hero and a voicemail message by him will make our customers’ new Windows Phone 8 by HTC phones even more personalised than before. Recording a good voicemail is always tricky and having a national treasure like Brian record yours for you is a chance that doesn’t come by all that often.”
(And then Brian laughed so hard that all of David Johnson’s skin came off)
“I’M PAID TO BE LENDING MY VOCAL TALENTS TO THE GOOD FOLK AT O2.”
I’ve fixed this for you.
I’m still disappointed that the campaign to get him to be the new voice of Stephen Hawking didn’t gain traction
Worth buying a HTC now that Nokia have given all windows phones access to Nokia Drive +.
Best Sat Nav program out on any mobile.
Rumour has it that the donkey pictured with Brian in the accompanying photo is now partially deaf in its left ear.
@ bah humbug
That’s not cause of his voice. He just stuck his knob in there.
FLY MY BEAUTIES!!!
Get back up Everest you knob.
Lockjaw: the correct emergency procedure for disabling Brian Blessed.
WINDOWS PHONE IS ALIVE!!!!!!
