[Funny] CNN: Turn Left, Fool
Companies are offering some surprising voices for you car's navigation system. Make room for Mr. T.
NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) - Believe it or not, getting yelled at and berated by Mr. T actually becomes boring pretty quickly.
Everything he tells you to do -- everything -- starts with "Hey, Fool!" That's true even when he's telling you to do something dumb, like drive onto the lower level of the Queensboro Bridge when the upper level is the one you need.
California company NavTones has contracted with Mr. T and the actors Burt Reynolds and Dennis Hopper to record voices that can be loaded into navigation systems, giving your driving directions a little extra personality. More voices are coming, the company said.
Another company, TomTom, offers John Cleese's voice along with several "fictional" characters that include a New York City cab driver and a Freudian psychoanalyst.
