Washington Mutual Commercial
Pretend that a top agency requests that you audition for a national commercial. They email you: "Hi. This is Peggy Olson of Sterling Cooper Ad Agency. We’re casting a national Washington Mutual radio commercial and would like you to submit an audition. You will see in the script that there are three distinct roles of Banker, Customer, and Announcer. We are looking to cast three separate people, so please do not read or audition for more than one role. Please record one take of the following script (voice only, no music) and begin your audition by slating your first name, last name, “Washington Mutual Commercial” audition, and the role you are auditioning for. Thank you."

Customer: I earned two cents last month.
Banker: Well, too bad.
Customer: I want more.
Banker: Well, baby can't have dessert until he eats his vegetables
Banker: Maybe you should lock up your money in one of our CDs
Customer: No, I want interest, but I still wanna spend my money
Banker: Well, you know I wish I could fly. I wish clouds were made of ice cream. I wish I didn't have issues with my mother. I wish...
Customer: Just give me my money....please!
