Last month, former childhood star and current television director Fred Savage was announced as the new voice of Honda. But since Savage has had no formal experience narrating things (that was Daniel Stern who voiced grown-up Kevin Arnold on The Wonder Years), Honda asked twitter followers to tweet their home videos with the hashtag #HondaPromo, for a shot at having them narrated by Honda’s new spokesman. Well now, Honda’s Fred Savage voice-over training videos are up on YouTube, and it appears that maybe Fred could use some more training. Or perhaps just better material.
