Wendy’s Beavers

In News by Nate Clark

I recently got to voice a beaver in this spot for Wendy’s. My beaver–“Miles” is his name–was inspired by Napolean Dynamite and also a beaver I met once in upstate New York. What I like most about this spot is the sense of authenticity you get when these beavers speak. It’s almost like they are really talking, and not voiced by actors like me! I’m not entirely certain why Wendy’s decided not to hire actual talking beavers, but I did hear on-set that talking beavers are a nightmare. I’ve definitely been visited by a talking beaver or two in my nightmares, so I get it. Regardless, really glad they opted to hire me instead, because I used the money from this spot to pay for a beaver-free European vacation with Allen.
