The Rabbit Hole:

So I stumbled upon this hilarious text-to-voice engine called FakeYou.

But unlike the usual dull robotic voice you get from automated nuisance calls, this one lets you pick a voice from a list of celebrities and well known characters.

Can you guess who this is?

I like chips with my sausage and mash - I know, weird right? 
I think it may have malfunctioned a bit towards the end.

I do all my stunts myself. I even once did a roly poly over a hill of skittles and broke my ankle while the scene was being shot - but I just continued. Because I am A REAL bad ass mother fucker!
