I am the Chlamydia voice of choice
It’s official. I am ‘the Chlamydia voice of choice.’
Today one of my clients sent me ANOTHER ad about sexually transmitted diseases. I’m beginning to see a pattern. The client sent me an email: “I saw this script and thought of you,“ he wrote.
I’ll level with you, Reader: I’m not sure this is a compliment.
I challenged him.
“Why?” I asked. “Why did you think of me when you saw a Chlamydia ad?”
“It had you written all over it,“ he said. “Young, saucy, been about a bit…“
“What do you mean?” I demanded. “Been about a bit?”
“Well, let’s not beat about the bush,“ he said, “you’re a woman of the world.”
“I am so not!” I said, rather defensively. “I go to garden centres at weekends! I’m a member of The National Trust! I’m a fan ofTime Team. I do not go clubbing, have one night stands, or getsexually transmitted diseases.”
“That might be the case,“ he said. “But you can sound as if you do.”
Here, I could see his point. When pressed, I can sound like a right smacked up slag.
“Could I do one about herpes?” I begged. “Just for a bit of variety?”
“No,“ he said. “You’re the Chlamydia girl. *Name of other female voiceover* is herpes. If you’re lucky we might have a domestic violence awareness ad later this week. You can do that. Keep your fingers crossed.”
