Jack

Don't you think the voice of Jack Box (CEO of Jack in the Box) sounds like Steve Martin? I always wondered whose voice that was and have always suspected it belonged to the comedian.

I did a little snooping on the 'net today and according to Yahoo answers, the voice belongs to Dick Sittig, founder and head of the ad agency that runs the JITB campaign, one that has produced some of my favorite commercials.

Being that any fool can provide Yahoo answers to a Yahoo question, and there was only one response from one fool, I did some more research and came across this interview with Mr. Fettig.

In that interview, he says that a lot of people think he is Jack's voice but he can't confirm that. Yeah, I already know that because it's Steve Martin, that's why!

On another note, a friend mentioned to me the other day that she was watching Desperate Housewives and saw the name "Monkupower" in the credits. Huh??? How dare they use anything having to do with "monku??" Sure enough I checked and that domain name has already been taken. You know I've been secretly planning to build a Monku empire ("Monkupire"), headed by my internet alias, Monkuboy. Maybe even have Steve Martin for a spokesman and an ad campaign run by Dick Sittig..

And on a final note, I wish you a happy Friday! TGIF! Oh man, it has been a long week.. things are heating up at work so I apologize for the boring blog entries this week. You didn't notice any difference, you say? Hmph..
