The Curious Case of Orson Welles and the Frozen Peas

Late in his life, Orson Welles was forced to record voice overs for commercials to make money. There’s an amazing outtake of a Welles recording session for a few commmercials that has floated around the internet for years. Commonly called “Frozen Peas” this recording features Orson criticizing the ad copy he has to read. Hilarity ensues.

Welles’ outburst were later parodied on The Critic.
