Wise Ass Voice Actor Wins Award...well...he helped.

by Mike Hanson on April 3rd, 2012

Wrigley's 2011 "Taste the Rainbow" campaign for Skittles, created by BBDO Toronto won TWO GOLD LIONS at Cannes, one for the five spot series and one for a single called "Cat". As of April 17, 2012 it has 6,044,646 views on YouTube.com all by itself! Combined the series has almost 10.5 million views. I did the VO. Take that Justin Bieber!

Kudos to the entire creative team, but a special "Wiseassery" (in my mind even more prestigious than a Cannes Gold Lion, but...whatever...I may be alone on this one) goes to writer/art director dynamic duo Mike Donaghey and Chris Joakim plus producer extraordinaire Jennifer Morrison.

The sweet suite of 5 new Skittles interactive spots are up on YouTube now! And I was invited back to voice them too. Tough noogies again Justin! The new series is attracting terrific attention---cumulatively attracting 869,899 views after just a couple of weeks! Look out Cannes 2012 competition (such as you are). I smell more success! (OK. I smell. Period). But not this work!

Damn! It's hard to be humble. But that we are here in Wiseassery. Especially me. The only other citizens are honorary and are more humiliated by that than humbled. Such is life in the slow lane.
