    He has a deep voice that is so 80s. He did tons of movie trailers and did commercials as well. Again, I'm talking about the 80s only.

    Thanks!

    Who's the guy currently doing the Burger King Double Cheeseburger ads? He's been doing ads for decades.

    BTW in case anyone was wondering, the guy who used to do the Smuckers and Cadbury ads in the 80's was none other than Mason Adams, who started out way way back in the heyday of radio programs. This is parodied in a Dr. Tran cartoon.

    Peter Cullen did some ads and he has a deep voice. He is the once and future voice of Optimus Prime.

    Hey, I just jumped on and only one voice came to mind but I checked this youtube vid and that's the guy! I always remember him saying two things: Tonight at nine and on the love boat. Tho I didn't come up with the topic I feel like I could have! I didn't know the guy's name but I used to make jokes about him all the time!

    and

    Now I think they are different guys. The Labyrinth one sounds like Don LaFontaine. The first one doesnt.
