A self-catering holiday company is seeking ‘the voice of Wales’ to feature in its new video.
Menai Holidays was sent a letter by a satisfied customer from London. The letter was written as if by Wales itself addressing its old friend London, highlighting the different lifestyles the two enjoy.
The company was so impressed with the letter, they decided to turn it into a video, complete with a voice-over. But that gave them a dilemma – if Wales was a person, would it be a man or a woman? And what sort of voice would it have?
Rather than choose an actor, Menai Holidays have decided to throw open the challenge to the UK and are asking people to send in a recording of their voice, if they think they could bring Wales to life. The voices will then be featured on social media for people to vote for.
Commenting on the challenge, Menai Holiday Cottages MD, William Matthews said: “Personally, I think Wales would be a giant of a man with a deep earthy voice. However, other people on the team thought Wales would be female with a silky voice like a mermaid. We want the UK to decide how the country should sound, hence the reason for the competition.”
