    Don LaFontaine, the movie trailer guy

    Some of you may have seen him in that Geico commercial, but here's a much better video (an interview) from Good Morning America. Man is it funny.

    There is no replacement for displacement.
    - Wolfgang Bernhard, then Chief Operating Officer, Chrysler Group talking about the Dodge Viper SRT-10
    ... I ask Herb Helbig, vehicle synthesis manager for SRT and a member of the original Team Viper development group since day one, if they'd ever thought of adding traction control. "It comes with two," he says, pointing at my feet. "Learn to use them." Got it.

    Haha that's great, I've only seen the Pablo Fransisco version before but not the real guy.

    Found this on youtube! A great clip with the 5 greatest voicover artists in the U.S, in 1 limo!

    He sounds like William Shatner to me when he's just chatting. He's from Minnesota too! Good man!

    <--Is imagining what Don LaFontaine would sound like with the stereotypical Minnesotan accent.

    That second video was hilarious! I recognised all of those voices from various trailers/tv shows.
