iPhone TV Commercial Voice

Have you seen the new iPhone TV commercials yet?
David blogged about the iPhone Voice on The Biz and I’m also going to share a bit more with you about the actor who narrated the commercial for Apple promoting the new iPhone.


Do you watch the show The Office?

If so, you’ll be happy to hear that one of your favorite actors from the hit sitcom landed the role as narrator for the Apple iPhone campaign on television.
It’s no surprise that Apple decided go with an actor from the show to perform the voice over. Apple has promoted “The Office” before during the unveiling of the new widescreen iPod.

Subsequently, “The Office” is the #1 downloaded show through Apple iTunes, so the timing of marrying voice from the comedy with an Apple product, specifically, TV ads for the iPhone, was a perfect choice. John Krasinski of The Office (pictured above) has been making a name for himself on and off camera.

Did you know he’s also the voice of Ask.com and the talent behind the voice of animated character Lancelot in Shrek the Third? That film is just teeming with great voice actors! Apple is always on the cutting edge when they hire voice actors. If you recall, they recruited Kiefer Sutherland to promote the new Intel chip in Macs in 2006.

The Apple iPhone comes out on June 29, 2007. Watch the ads for the new iPhone and let us know what you think. Looking forward to hearing from you,
Stephanie

P.S. If you are an Apple fan and haven’t caught the Apple TV commercial yet, it has been uploaded to YouTube.com.

    Right. So, just to clarify the inaccuracy of this entire article, John Krasinski is not the voice of Apple’s iPhone ads. That role belongs to Glenn Martin. Krasinski is only responsible for the AppleTV commercial.

    Sorry, but while the AppleTV commercial sounds like it might very well be John Krasinski, the new iPhone ads definitely are NOT voiced by him.

    Hi there,
    Thank you for sharing your opinions on the matter. The original source we discovered this information from is OfficeTally.com.
    Now, since there is a debate going on openly, I called Apple Corporate to see if they could confirm the voice for these particular commercials regarding the iPhone.
    Unfortunately, Apple is keeping a tight lip on this one, so we’ll have to wait until a later date. Apple will not be officially announcing the voice or confirming any details at this point.
    While Kiefer’s was quite obvious last year, this voice over, in the opinion of some, is a bit more ambiguous.
    I did some further research for Glenn Martin and any association that this gentleman may have had and it doesn’t appear to lead to anything regarding a voice over.
    Obviously there is a confidentiality agreement out there between Apple and the agency / artist they worked with.
    If you’d like to keep guessing on the iPhone commercial voice actor, you are welcome to leave a comment here on VOX Daily with who you think the voice is.
    Bear in mind that Apple would not confirm the information, so it may very well be John Krasinski after all.
    Thanks for reading,
    Stephanie

    Hi Guys,
    Thanks for adding your links and comments.
    The IMDb doesn’t show any credits for the voice over and I think it’s safe to say that unless Apple, Glenn Martin, or people representing John Krasinski come out with the official answer, it’s still up for debate 🙂
    If you have solid proof and can reveal the source to confirm, please leave a comment.
    Thanks!
    Stephanie

    I don’t usually approve anonymous comments unless they have something to add to the conversation or have significant weight.
    This comment, after investigation, proved worthy of approval, even though it was anonymous 🙂
    Thank you for providing the link. I went there and listened to Glenn Martin’s reel and the Apple spot is on there. I’m confirming now with Glenn’s agent. Once we have the official confirmation I will write a follow up post with the results.
    Thank you,
    Stephanie

    Hi there,
    It’s been nearly a year and still no response from Glenn’s agent.
    I guess there was an non-disclosure agreement?
