This commercial features a woman talking about Excedrin. She speaks with a vocal fry tone. I know many peoe here hate that. That's why I posted it here!

Video?  It'd be kinda tough for the rest of us to go through all the Excedrin commercials and find one in which we think the woman is using vocal fry.

Yeah, I get tired of finding videos all the time.
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

Is this it?  (It certainly meets the criteria you listed)



Good marketing strategy for a headache relief medicine, since listening to the bitch's voice is irritating enough to give you a friggin' migraine.

Unless I think the person's put out some sort of effort in finding/posting the video, I just don't bother anymore.

I don't think therer's any vocal fry in there.  In fact, to me it sounds the opposite.  She's very soft-spoken.

I beg to differ with you Thor.  Listen when she says "rrrreal" and "half an hourrrrr".  Them vocals is fried.

Naah.  Here's vocal fry.  In the video below, the girls starts out speaking much like Moss in the Excedrin commercial, and then goes into the vocal fry.  I don't hear Moss doing that.

Thor, I'm not sure how you're not hearing it!  Moss' voice might not be as brash as the one you posted but it's definitely fried.  The guy at the end is also fryin'.

Sorry, just not hearing it with either Moss or the voiceover at the end.  Neither of them are ending their sentences with any creaky sort of sound.

I think a certain amount of the vocal fry shows up in normal speech.  I hear it a little bit here, but I think it falls within normal limits.  It's when it's constantly used affectedly that it gets really obnoxious.  Vocal fry is the new Valley Girl.

Good educational vid but day-um, I wish she would quit smacking her lips and pawing through her hair. It's very weird, considering that she's trying to draw attention to an annoying habit some young women have inexplicably latched onto. Her own habits are a little annoying, too. But nothing beats vocal fry for annoying. He hear guys do it, too. They sound like toads -- and it's so monotonous. Gah!

Aha! I finally noticed the name that flashed onscreen while she is talking. Her name is Jordin Sparks! The name sounds familiar.
