Instant Folgers?

Many moons ago I dated an audio engineering student. This was one of our fun little projects…dubbing a retro Folgers coffee commercial. I did two voices, the cute housewife and the old dude at the grocery store (and my old man voice is pretty bad, ha!). I just remembered it today and it made me smile. It used to be a dream of mine to be a voice over artist but it’s a very competitive field and I didn’t want to invest in all the recording equipment to try freelancing at home. I’d rather stick to my true love, writing.

Please pour yourself a damn fine cup of coffee and enjoy!

  1. Waaa haaa haaa! Mr Perkins is a sweet sounding fellow and he knows his coffee! My gramps, who will soon hit 104 years old, started on his Folgers journey in the 60’s and never looked back. I wonder if it was this commercial that turned him and gave him the secret to longevity? I got a real tickle out of this. It actually sounded a lot like the Leave it to Beaver era commercials.

      • Waaaa haaa haaa! Sugar Bear was so Kool back in the day. Tell mom to add one dram of whiskey after dinner and she’ll be immortal or at least feel immortal. πŸ˜†

      • Sugar Bear probably got all the ladies, I can tell! πŸ˜‰ Mom never drinks hard liquor but she likes a little wine here and there. I’ve never actually seen her drunk, or even that tipsy.

      • Can you imagine the impact Sugar Bear had on us six year olds who ate uncountable boxes of Sugar Crisps just hoping against hope, we would be cool too. Ha ha ha! Even back then I was too hard headed to give up. Mom sounds like she don’t need no adulterated Folgers. πŸ˜²πŸ˜†

  2. Weird, I commented here, but using my phone, I must have not posted – anyhoo, I was laughing my proverbials off watching this! Is that your real accent tho? I suspect that the old mans voice is closer to how you really speak no? I know this cos Munchkins are from Kansas, so now you are totally busted!

    The young lady has such a lovely crisp edge on her voice there, now I really want to hear you speak! Normally!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ ❀

    • Aw dang, that’s happened to me before. I had a feeling you’d be guffawing. πŸ˜€ I did change my voice a little to get into character. So it’s a little higher and softer to match Carol’s look. Ahaha you goof! I’m not a Munchkin, I’m the wicked witch! *cackle* I’ll see what I can do, maybe I’ll post a video on Instagram talking in my normal voice. But then you have to promise to do the same!

      • Haha, I look forward to your video, of course I shall reciprocate! I’d probably prefer to use the “direct share” method, as I shall no doubt come over as a complete weirdo!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
