Advertising in the Year 2000
Audio spoof on a typical advertising voice-over session, produced in 1981!
Originally written by Jay Rose as an article for Backstage Magazine, and then produced by him just for the heck of it.
Contains reference to the famous Orson Welles frozen-food session, which you might want to listen to first.
