Vauxhall Van adverts on Absolute radio

Post by Addy » Thu Feb 14, 2013 9:36 pm

I heard these Vauxhall van adverts today whilst listening to Absolute 80's and i'm almost 100% sure it is Barry and Moxey doing the voice overs, i've tried to find a link to them but no joy so far, it definitely plays on their characters in AWP.

Anyone else heard them?

Those adverts have been around for a while. I had the same thought about them being based on Barry and Moxey.

There was also an advert on radio a couple of years ago about some new building regulations, and I'm fairly sure Tim Healy did the voiceover for it.

They used to do the voices, but now some crappy people pretending to be them

On a similar note, Timothy Spall voices a character in the video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories called Barry, who has a Brummie accent. I'd like to think it's a nod to his character in AWP.
