Be Amazed By 'Voiceover Boy' - The 14 Year-Old With The World's Deepest Voice

With a voice that sounds like a cross between soul legend Barry White and a fella who smoke 50 Woodbines a day, schoolboy Jake Foushee has taken his bid to become a voice actor by the throat.

The 14-year-old has become an internet sensation after posting a video of himself voicing a mock film trailer in the style of "Voiceover King" Don LaFontaine.

The 32-second clip, which has been viewed over 144,000 times, was filmed in Jake's bedroom at his home in America. He begins by telling the audience of his hopes of becoming a voice actor before introducing his "movie trailer guy impression".

In a gravelly voice that belies his tender years, the schoolboy launches into the stirring impression.

"In a world where the Earth was no longer in our control, with our survival at stake," he growls.

"We have one chance and that chance is to fight back. Get ready for the most thrill-ride motion picture event of the year: Apocalypse. In theatres everywhere. Friday."

The impression bears a remarkable likeness to film-trailer legend Don LaFontaine, who died in 2008, aged 68.

His voice had become one of the most recognisable on earth after voicing more than 5,000 movie trailers including The Godfather Part II, Dr Strangelove, Ghostbusters, Home Alone and Terminator.

Good luck Jake!
