The Voice Of The ‘Movie Trailer Guy’
Posted on 04.23.12 by Danny Glover @ 9:31 pm

Our 12-year-old son has been brainstorming ways to make money so he can buy an iPod Touch. Maybe once his voice changes, he can adopt this teenager’s tactic and start charging $5 to record messages for people’s answering machines:

The boy behind the voice is 14-year-old Jake Foushee, and the video above made him an Internet star. The Charlotte Observer has the story:

Thanks to an uploaded YouTube video, the deep-voiced teenager has quickly become known all over the world for his spot-on impression of the late Don LaFontaine, also known as “The Movie Trailer King.” (You know the voice, “In a world where …”)

Jake’s impression is irreconcilable with the youthful face from which it emits.

Jake says he began uploading videos of himself doing voiceovers about the time his voice changed when he was 13. A few days ago, his video impersonation of LaFontaine made it to Reddit.com, a social news site on which users vote stories or videos “up” or “down.” That’s when his YouTube numbers started to explode.

Foushee, who was on “Good Morning America” last week, is following in the footsteps of another Southerner who recently become an online celebrity thanks to Reddit: Zeddie Little, the “ridiculously photogenic guy” who spawned an Internet meme.

You gotta love it when enlightened rednecks get their 15 minutes in the spotlight.
