Anyone catch Tom Kane on the Today Show this morning?

I missed the first half of the segment, snoozing, but then heard his voice and woke up. They were talking about celebrities doing voice overs for commercials and why marketing folks would pick a celebrity over a voice actor who does this stuff for a living. They even had a game when they'd pull people off the street from Universal Studios to play "Who's that Voice?"... playing commercials to see if a typical consumer would really recognize a celebrity voice (to see if it was "worth it" for marketing to pay extra for that celebrity). Most couldn't.

At the end of the segment, Kane said, and I'm paraphrasing, "You stick to your movies and let us handle the commercials..." Hehe.

I'm checking the Today website to see if maybe they have a video clip of the segment, but haven't found anything as of yet...
