"Ahaaarrr" was pretty funny. I haven't had it that bad. My worst was a VO job where there were three or five people from the ad agency in the lobby, and they sometimes had contrasting comments. That makes it very difficult to figure out how to get it right. Finally, I just started listening to the engineer for guidance. That got me through and everything turned out fine.
As a former radio station production director/commercial voice talent, it gave me a huge laugh when the engineer in "Aharr" said that it was supposed to be a ten second spot. How many times did I get a script for a :60 that had about :75 of content and directions like "music up and under, five seconds" three times? Let's just say, that's one of the ways "copy-editor" became part of the job.
