Advertising and marketing agency MGH is looking to cast the “Voice of Baltimore.” Could it be you?
From the press release: “Ideal candidates must have a genuine Baltimore accent – not the one that comes out at parties – and possess a passion for our city and all its charm.” The casting call is open through April 30.
Other qualities the agency seeks in applicants include an outgoing personality and great sense of humor. If selected, the “voice” may be hired to appear in an advertising campaign for one of MGH’s clients. Interested applicants should visit www.thevoiceofbaltimore.com to apply.
“With our growing list of Baltimore-based brands as clients, we’re on the hunt to find the person with most genuine “Bawlmerese” accent and vibrant personality to match,” said EVP, Executive Creative Director at MGH, John Patterson. “Through this casting call, we hope to find a truly genuine Baltimore voice that could be used in future advertising efforts. We’re not looking for actors; we want to find the real deal.”
If you’re not the “real deal,” see the above video, “Top Five Baltimore Accents” made by our summer intern Arlo Shakur, to hear what a Baltimore accent should sound like.
