3 Reasons Why Verne Troyer Makes an Excellent GPS Voice
Verne Troyer might not be the first person that comes to mind when thinking about celebrity GPS voices, but once you hear the things that he says, it becomes quite clear that Verne was born to give you directions. There are several reasons for this "dark horse" voice option which we'll get in to shortly, but first you should know that Verne Troyer isn't messing around. Just because he's small doesn't mean he's a kid and you can pinch his cheeks or pick him up and bounce him on your knee. Here are 3 reasons why Verne Troyer is an excellent GPS voice:
- Verne is on wheels 18 hours a day. He rolls just about everywhere he goes, whether it's on the road in his tricked out Mercedes convertible, or on the sidewalk in his surprisingly-agile motorized scooter. This means he drives more than you and he knows how to get around.
- Verne doesn't take up much space. At two feet eight inches tall, Verne makes for an excellent travel companion on any trip. He sits on your dash and he doesn't obstruct your field of vision or distract you from the road. Just be careful you don't misplace him and remember where you put him.
- Verne is really funny. Consider these gems which are all part of Verne's Garmin voice download and will pop up at various times along a route: "Hey genius, we're off route." Or, "One more height joke and I'm gonna mess somebody up real bad." And if this destination announcement doesn't make you laugh, you're in the wrong place, "Arriving at destination. If we're at Starbucks tell them their 'tall' coffee doesn't work.
So there you have a plethora of reasons why Verne Troyer makes an excellent GPS voice and why you should make him your Garmin voice. As soon as you pull up a route you might hear Verne say "maybe we'll see some sharks with some frickin' laser beams." If that's not the right way to start off a drive, then maybe you should just take a cab.
