Voice Roles


(Scene: Desert Area - The gecko explains a spotted lizard in the desert area.)

Gecko: Look, here's the deal. When you talk about, you want to communicate three things: Easy to use. No middle man. Could save you hundreds on car insurance. Other than that just sort of being personable. Yeah, the old "Nice weather, ain't it? Cup of tea? That'd be lovely. How's your mum? Cheers."

(The spotted-lizard licks his eyeball with his tongue.)

Gecko: I'd stick with a small talk, mate. Theatrics might come across as a bit cheesy.
