Old Marvel VHS Tapes and the Bored Announcer

If you ever want a big laugh, go watch old Marvel cartoon VHS tapes, such as the Vulture.  These tapes have ads for other cartoons in the Marvel library, but the guy doing the voice for the ads speaks in such a monotone that he sounds completely out of his mind.  The energy level if his speaking is pretty much the exact opposite of Stan Lee’s, like someone reading written notes on a subject that they have no real interest in and is just using the ad to practice his pronunciation of words.  Some of these VHS tapes were released here in Canada on DVD a couple years ago, but sadly the old ads, which were by far the most entertaining part of the old tapes, did not make the transfer over.
