Job Description

This is a VO for a 40 sec car commercial for Indian audiences. We need a narrative for the film. The film is a story about a little beagle who is the boss of all the dogs in his area. The film opens on him having a meeting in a dark dingy mafia type warehouse setting.
Cut to him mediating between two dogs who are fighting, he settles the dispute between them. They stop fighting. Cut to, its daylight and he quickly exits and runs back to his home. Now he has become a normal dog and goes out for a drive with is master,
Suddenly they come across a girl walking a boxer. They stop and the boxer salutes our hero beagle dog. The girl is amazed and the master just gives a look saying yeah he is my dog after all.
Cut to the baseline
MVO 1 -"You never know who catches it. "
" Smartness is infectious".
MVO 2 -" Wagon R for the smarter race "

The narrative essentially is a sort of a description of the Hero dogs antics in verse form. It has to be said as if a Italian mafia character is saying it, describing his godfather. Maybe Marlon Brando voice or a Joe Pesci style. It has to have a dramatic feel and will be underscored with music. The words should be enunciated properly so that indian audiences can understand it well. A little italian accent is required.

The first part has to be said in character.
The MVO at the end has to be said in a normal
crisp TV commercial voice.
Character VO

Here comes the Boss,
In front of him the biggest are at a loss,
He growls because he’s smart,
His logic can tear you apart.

But as dawn breaks,
His leave he takes,
A smart one, he is for sure
His story of smartness has a little more.

Here comes his inspiration, his Boss,
It’s from him that the smart ideas cross,
To just be with him, our smart one is gracious,
Because he knows that Smartness is Infectious.

MVO 1 -"You never know who catches it. "
" Smartness is infectious".

MVO 2 -" Wagon R for the smarter race "
