118 118 is a directory service in the UK and their TV ads are now famous! The “men with moustaches” featured in the commercials are based on the 1970’s record breaking runner David Bedford. I recorded a whole series of about 7 commercials, where the men played different sports and it tied in nicely with the London 2012 Olympics which was about to happen.
These adverts were aired in extremely high profile spots, right in the middle of Coronation Street, X Factor and the Britain’s Got Talent Final. The voiceover style that was required was a parody of a television sports commentator and was great fun to record. We laughed a lot during the sessions! Here are the adverts:
