Insane how quickly this went viral, I saw it this morning and it had 300 views, it now has over 1.1 million and will no doubt have more by the time others see it.

I'd hire him for the publicity, but he's probably not too keen on relocating right now. The cynic in me though feels like this could be a hoax... I mean, yeah his voice is great, but how many radio announcers are you aware of that sound like that, or how many imaging guys do you know that can replicate it? Something like this, shoot a short little film in the street, get all ragged looking, and get yourself some work in a slow economy with 100,000 radio graduates coming out of US schools a year and only 2% of those having any real shot at making it.

Hoax or not though, this guy could stand to make some pretty good coin out of all this when everyone wants him to do their imaging. People will joke now that he'll probably work for next to nothing, but that won't be the case when he has one or two major offers.

The follow-up, it would appear that the organization that runs the Cavs have offered him full time voice work and they threw in a little something extra... cue Rod Roddy...

A BRAND NEW HOUSE!

So, sounds like he'll be taking that deal.
