This is a documentary, not a comedy sketch.

That was so close to reality that I didn't laugh once. Not even at the dog bit.

Sigh.

Back in a long forgotten past while doing a song for a TVC for St Vincent de Paul the agency guy kept asking for a sound over the end ...so I pulled up various instruments and sounds.........he had a lot of trouble articulating what he wanted.......but that didn't stop him trying and trying and trying.
I almost gave up when he said " It's like in Jurassic Park when the water in the glass moves because the dinasours are coming"
I said " something low, subby?" and he said " actually it's not really a sound"

I wanted to say " You do realise this is a SOUND studio you F#@ktard" but I went for a coffee instead.

Classic Steve. Maybe you should have played him your folder full of silences.

I was at a theatre tech rehearsal once, and the director wanted one part of the stage to be in darkness.

So he asked for a "black light" to be pointed there.
