- Hey, we would like to reserve a few hours of your Gothenburg Studio.
- Absolutely, we have summer hours. What is the project?
- Yes, there is one actor who is in Sweden and will read a few television commercials, via the link on New York.
- Okay, we will solve it. Who is the actor?
- Kiefer Sutherland. - Kiefer Sutherland.
- Excuse me?!?
- Kiefer Sutherland.
- Yes, I heard but then ... Det är ju JACK BAUER! It's Jack Bauer!
- Exactly. Do you want to ...
- Is it possible if ...
- Can we also ask you ...
- NO PROBLEM:-D
When one of the leading actor and announcer voices want to come to one's studio, we were not late to say yes. Kiefer Sutherland is not only known as CTU agent Jack Bauer (from the series "24" for those who missed the 2000s most exciting TV series), but a popular and extremely välavlönda voice in advertising. Until September, he is in Sweden to record a Lars von Trier film, which unfortunately clashed with one of his promotional duties. So on Friday evening, he came up to our studio in Gothenburg Stig Berg House, and read up a bunch of TV commercials for Bank of America.
Mr. Sutherland has been their "Spokes person" for 5 years now, a job he certainly may xx million - per year! Although I think I can promise you that this crazy high fee is a bargain for Bank of America. Imagine being in the middle of the deepest financial crisis have "Jack Bauer's voice" in all its television advertising, the man who rescued the U.S. from terrorism and other unpleasantness during the 2000s. It can feel more secure for a Yank?
Here you can see and hear some of his early television commercials for the same client.
How was he? yes, nice and professional sick. Our microphone enjoyed the whole evening to get their membranes have been saved by this divinely beautiful voice. But what struck us most was that he was only 1.76 long. Not nearly as big and beefy action hero as believed. Thinking of trying to wrestle him down on the floor, mostly for the sake of it. But on reflection, it is not related to Jack Bauer. Not after all he has done for the world :-)
