From today TomTom GPS users can download, via TomTom Home, an official Homer Simpson voice to guide them around town.
The perfect complement to the "Simpsons Sing the Blues" CD or the "Rappin' Ronny Reagan" tape.
Homer Simpson joins the ranks of Mr T, Dennis Hopper, Kim Cattrall and John Cleese as a downloadable custom voice for TomTom portable navigation devices. Fans of the longest-running American prime time entertainment series can now listen to Homer "woohoo" and "d'oh!" his way through your turn-by-turn directions. Along the way, Homer adds his own commentary, such as: "Take the third right. We might find an ice cream truck! Mmm ... ice cream."
The official Homer Simpson voice was recorded by Dan Castellaneta, the voice actor from the show, and is available for download using the TomTom Home software suite for AU$17.50. Unfortunately, because Homer is pre-recorded and not a computer-generated voice, spoken street names are not available when users are being directed by the head of the Simpson clan.
