It was an interesting assignment – to record a voiceover for a Skittles commercial that would run on the internet. I’ve worked in television and radio for decades and I’ve recorded voice tracks and read promos for as long as I can remember. But this was the first time I had auditioned for a commercial, and to my surprise I got the job!
The spot would run after Super Bowl Sunday. Was I psyched that I’d be the voice behind a Super Bowl commercial? You better believe it, baby! Then things got a little confusing. The assignment was to record a commercial about another Skittles commercial that would be shown to only one person, a teenager in California. Got that? Well I didn’t, exactly. It made no sense until I headed to downtown Chicago and saw what the spot looked like. When you see it, you immediately get it. It’s clever and it works!
The spot will run on the internet for 8 weeks. Take a look at it right here: Skittles Super Bowl Commercial Voiced by Marianne
