His voice...I want to strangle him!

I first noticed this guys ANNOYING voice in a local Philly car ad this past Summer.
Now he does H.H. Gregg and NTB - National Tire & Battery.

Yeah, there's no mistaking that it's the same guy for both products.  His delivery is exactly the same.

Hey ridley, I couldn't help but notice how concise your posts are.  You are averaging 3.11 words per post - amazing!!

That's got to be the record on this forum.

Yup, I did the math...

To be more precise:

- total posts        = 9    posts
- average            = 3.11 wpp (words per post)
- standard deviation = 1.73 wpp
- quartile 1         = 1.50 wpp
- median             = 3.00 wpp
- quartile 3         = 4.00 wpp


The data used is the following list (in wpp): 1,2,4,7,3,3,3,4,1

Assuming a normal distribution, there is a:
- 43.60% chance of the next post being between 2 and 4 words
- 75.14% chance of the next post being between 1 and 5 words

This is a very small data set, so it's hard to see much in it yet, but there you go. Tongue

As an aside, I've got to hand it to the Chinese. It's amazing what you can do with a dollar store calculator these days. It's even solar powered! The soda I got on my way home from work cost more!

Nice work dude!  Thumbs Up

The data set is growing; the next two posts were 1 word and 4 words.  So we are still within the bounds of our normal distribution.

This is encouraging - we have yet to see a post of zero words or over 7 words!

I'm hoping that the 7 word post was an anomaly...

Nope Ridley. Nothing standard about that voiceover.
