Super Smoke

Super Smoke

Here’s a game you can play when you’re walking around the city. When a sign catches your eye, try to imagine it as a person’s voice. What would it sound like? Would it be a woman’s voice or a man’s? Would its tone be commanding? Seductive? Whimsical?

I hear the sign in this photo as a man’s voice: raspy, cigarette-damaged, hesitant. His neurons aren’t firing too quickly and he sometimes loses track of what he’s saying. “Super…” (Where was I again? Oh yeah!) “…Smoke.”

Do you hear someone different in this sign? Are there signs you’ve noticed that have a memorable voice?
