What's Next? Voicevertising.

If you're in New York City and you hear a guy yelling "Halls Fruit Breezers!", now you'll know why.

Floyd Hayes, a resident of Brooklyn, NY, put his voice for sale on eBay. As a result, every 15 minutes the man will scream the name of the Cadbury Adams product "no matter what location or situation, i.e. subways, elevators, bars, clubs, weddings or even business meetings."

It's creative, for sure, but I don't know how I feel about it. I mean, it's obtrusive, to say the least - do you really want this guy standing next to you in the subway when it's time for his next "voicevertisement"? At least forehead and cleavage advertising is quiet.

How much did they pay him? I can't find it on eBay.

Update: Thanks to Steve Coulson for the link.
