Commercial Break: The man with the golden voice is still alive

13 January 2012

Let’s send you into the weekend with some remembering. Remember Ted Willams, the homeless Ohio hobo with the velvet larynx? A year ago, he was living on the streets, smoking crack and not doing very many advert voiceovers. In fact, he was doing none – it was almost all about the smoking of the crack.

But then he got discovered by a TV news crew and within a few days he’d had a wash and was advertising macaroni cheese – the American dream writ large. But twelve months on, where is he now? Back in a ditch, with his lips locked around the pipe again? NO! He’s fine, kind of (there’s been a few stabs at rehab but he’s clean at the moment). He’s living in a condo, has got a walk-in wardrobe and everything’s fine and dandy. EVERYTHING’S COMING UP TED!

He still needs to bring back the old hairstyle though.

    Good for him :) Vid got a bit repetitive, but nonetheless a nice story, I remember it from last year.

    So, it was thanks to smoking crack that got him a job? kids have been smoking crack for years and still haven't got jobs!
