Piracy in voice-over land
On June 5th 1995, John Baur and Mark Summers were playing a friendly game of racquetball. For some mysterious reason, they started encouraging each other in pirate slang. I’ll let them tell the story: “…whoever let out the first “Arrr!” started something. One thing led to another. “That be a fine cannonade,” one said, to […]
