Morgan Freeman inhales helium in new trailer


Posted on Monday, 26 May, 2014 | Comment icon 9 comments

What does Morgan Freeman sound like on helium ? Image Credit: YouTube / Science Channel
The legendary actor sounded a little different in a recent promo video for 'Through The Wormhole'.
Star of films such as "The Shawshank Redemption" and the recent "Dark Knight" Batman trilogy, Morgan Freeman's trademark deep voice is one of the most recognizable in modern cinema.

Now in a bid to help promote the latest run of US science documentary series "Through the Wormhole", the Science Channel has decided to turns things on their head by having the 76-year-old inhale some helium from a balloon while introducing a promotional segment for the show.

"In unusual situations," he says, "you don't always get what you expect."

The legend, still actively creative at 76. May he continue to inspire.

Eh...now they need to get him to do that again - after breathing in sulphur hexafluoride (it's much denser than air, so makes voices deeper).

Morgan Freeman makes everything better when he speaks about science. He grabs my attention and holds it, unlike teachers today. Teachers should have all their vocal cords changed to sound like Morgan Freeman!

I'm not sure why they hid him in shadows. Did someone think we wouldn't indentify his unique voice? LOL!

It was about what I expected. Still pretty funny.

That actually made me laugh out loud, particularly on his second inhale. He has a great voice under the influence of Helium or not lol, always a great choice for a narrator!
