Ok, if I can see it yet, can you describe it to me?

It’s… like an American movie trailer. Complete with American voice-over guy.
The voice-over goes something like:
This autumn, Edinburgh’s City Art Centre takes you on a journey of discovery.
Over 3000 years ago, the tomb of one of Egypt’s greatest pharoahs was inscribed with the Amduat, the timeless book of the dead.
It told of belief, pride, and magic.
Immortal Pharoah: The Tomb of Thutmose III
Can you decipher the code to eternity?

And it’s all moody and atmospheric, and the writing flashes up in a sort of fire effect.

It’s very, very cool.

It’s a bit more exciting than the actual exhibition, to be honest.
LOL

There’s a comedian Pablo Fransico who does an unbelievable good imitation of the American movie voice over guy.

...That guy makes a fortune.  He even has his own studio where he sits and does different versions of the same tag lines over and over and over.

I thought I saw some statistic that people didn’t pay as much attention to the trailers when he wasn’t doing the voiceover.

I don’t know who it was. It just didn’t work with a Scottish accent, though…
And glad you got back, Maeg!
