You’re sitting in your car listening to the radio or watching a television spot and you stop and think, “Hey, I recognize that voice!” Celebrity voiceover talent can be great for a brand, but what if no one recognizes the voice? This begs the question, Why do advertisers spend boo-coo-bucks on getting celebrity voiceover talent when no one knows who the heck they are?” Well, I don’t have an answer for you, but I do have a fun game.

I have a male cat named Bella. My response to people’s reaction is, “To me, he is beautiful.” But truth is, I was told he was a girl when I first got him and it wasn’t until months later when my brother said, “Your cat has a package,” that I found out my Bella was a Bell ... o? Aside from my confused cat, I am also a new mommy to a handsome baby boy, and as a new mom, I have learned three valuable lessons: 1. Always have a burp cloth handy. 2. Make sure the diaper is properly secured at all times. 3. Mom is always a phone call away if you are having a freak-out moment.
