    Yesterday, while I was watching the new Robot Chicken premier on Adult-Swim.com I saw a new United States Navy commercial placed before the video. Y'know the ones narrated by Kieth David that always say "accelerate your life" at the end.

    Well anyways, as I watched the commercial, I suddenly heard a very familiar voice...It was none other than the great Peter Cullen himself!

    Here's what he says:

    Here's the link to the Robot Chicken episode, but you'll have to reload it until it plays the Navy commercial. The other two commercials placed before the Robot Chicken episode will be for the new movie "Choke", which is from the writer of FIGHT CLUB.

    [adult swim] | Adult Swim Video

    I already checked YouTube and the Navy's official site, neither has a video of the new commercial.

    If someone could obtain it and post it here for all to see then that would be great.

    Just keep reloading the video until you finally stop seeing those damn Choke trailers and finally see the Navy Commercial.

    It took me a good 14 tries to finally see it again.

    So far I've only seen it 4 times. Three times yesterday and once on the very first try this morning.

    That's awesome! If I hadn't already joined the Navy before, I would now!

    lol. That's awesome. Also cool that the computer systems I worked on when I was in the Navy are featured in the video.

    Thanks Peter!

    I'm just curious, would this count as News or just Peter Cullen stuff? I was unsure and thats why I posted it in "Movies and Television."

    I wonder if he'll be replacing Kieth David for all the Navy's new commercials? We'll just have to wait and see...

    Cullen does promos all the time so it doesn't seem very "newsworthy" to me, and I don't doubt we'll be hearing him do movie trailers more frequently now that "The Don" is no longer with us.

    It's certainly "noteworthy" though.

    On an extremely slow news day it may be. I'm wondering if his VO deal has anything to do with the production of the movie and how closely they work with the military.

    You might as well submit this via the "submit news" link and see if the newsies bite.

    Where is the "submit news" link? or did you mean just post this in News?

    I'd rather move the thread so if I get credit, then Spartan26 can also get credit too for uploading the video.
