JUST RELAX AND LISTEN

Jake narrating that thing he narrated:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nq52n9TyfO4
I'm not sure I approve of the deceitfullness this 'Philippe' went to, to do something that can only be described as six levels of bat shit crazy. Anyway, Jake seems mega-excited about it on all accounts. It's ten minutes long but it's worth it to hear Jake doing a woman's voice. And it is sad at the end. I'm also not sure how accurate it is. I can't believe too many passing New Yorkers stopped in their tracks to say, 'Look! There's a man dancing up there!"

If you want to buy it so you can lie down in a cool room and pretend Jake is reading it to you then it's available HERE (I think). It's called 'The Man Who Walked Between The Towers...and More Inspiring Tales'. Please do not let this tale inspire you to go tightrope walking between skyscrapers, no matter how cute Jake sounds because when he narrates your story it will end,
"Then the crazy person slipped, plummeted to the ground and it took them three days to clear up the mess"

Thanks to webqueen259 for finding this although smurfette found it too and beat me to punch, damn you, smurfette, damn you!!!

Aww, such a cute story!
And Jake really is a good narrator. His voice is so soothing and great to listen to.

Kendra said...

Excellent diction work by Jake. "He was happy and absolutely free" -that's a sensation that must be recovered by Newyorkers and a lot more people.

I can't help but imagine Jake reading that to children....


our children ;)

reitina said...

what a gentle sweet endearing voice.. and when you listen to it, you can almost see jake in front of you. ah.. the things he chooses to do, are all soo beautiful.. i adore this guy even more now. yeah, still more, amazing huh?

Elle said...

I absolutely ADORE American accents (whatcha mean, you don't have accents !? Of course you do, all of you!!) but now I think I adore Jake's American accent the most of all.

But beside Jake's utterly sumptuous voice, I loved the story - such a cool allegory! Reminds me of a sig line I used to use which said: If you're going to skate on thin ice, you might as well dance!

"Excellent diction work by Jake"
Totally agree with Kendra: english not being my first language, sometimes I need the help of subtitles to understand a film. This time I could understand everything without them.
And the sweetest voice too!...like everything about Jake!

My first comment here so just say thanks to Brit, PG and everyone commenting. Love u all!

I've wondered. Is it possible for him to do anything that is not endearing?
I still haven't discovered it yet.
I surrender to this reality.

abbey said...

That was lovely!

I believe this is a true story. There's pictures of the man himself, Philippe Petit walking the wire at this website:

Love Jake's voice and yes as everyone else has said, could he be more endearing and he does have the sweetest voice.

JoyceDavenport said...

Oh my goodness- I totally misread the post and thought Britpop was saying the story ended with Philippe falling off. I am really scared of heights and was dreading the end. I 'm so glad he made it. What a beautiful story- and such a touching tribute to 9/11. Jake's voice sounds really different to me without the face behind it. Much more mature.

mrs_dalloway said...

WOW! I can't believe this is a true story!A man actually walked between the two towers,how amazing!
Jake's voice is just too gorgeous..sweet and soft.He's perfect for puting his voice to cartoons and fairy tales..I sure would like my kids to listen to him as they grow up..
And I love the way he says "Philippe Petit" with that american accent (elle,you're right about that one ;)

AmberRadley said...

If only he were reading this story to me on the side of my bed! Mmmmmm . . .

Seaweed said...

What a wonderful story... and thanks to all involved for bringing it to our attention.

Our young Jake has an endearing and expressive voice, I could listen to him all day. His participation in a project like this doesn't suprise me, Jake demonstrates his humanity so frequently.

nice anonymous said...

The appeal escapes me, quite frankly. But I have never been one for those fair-haired, rather Matt Damon-ish types.

(You all know what my type is. Because we all have a penchant for that particular type.)

nice anonymous said...

Pardon me. My comment above should have been posted in the entry above this one. (Don't know how I got down here ... hit some damn button or something.)

The Sarsgaals said...

That was amazing. Totally made my day. The way he spoke the end nearly had me in tears. The Sarsgaals LOVE Jakey's voice.

Muffin said...

Aw that was beautiful....thanks for posting the link. I am so happy to have finally had the chance to see the film and hear Jake's lovely, sweet narration..... *sigh*

only1annabel said...

I saw the link and so wathced it last night before I went to bed and it was such a nice thing to hear before going to sleep...the calming, gentle voice of Jake was lovely and relaxing. If only it had been in person...not much sleep would have occured afterwards mind you!

smurfette said...

sorry for stealing your thunder britpop! sometimes i’m even amazed by the speed with which we jake watchers find and spread every last tidbit or news item related to our obsession =). it is a great find though, isn’t it? sigh… i need to figure out how to save youtube stuff so i can put it on my ipod and listen to it all the time…

SquallCloud said...

Six levels of batshit crazy BWAAH!

Yay! I'm so glad they put the whole story on Youtube! I tried to buy it before, but they didn't ship it internationally. I only knew the clip of Philippe Petit taking his first steps between the towers before and found it gorgeous, but the whole story is so much more moving, with a heartbreaking end. Jake's narration is perfect - makes you wish to try cable walking!

Smurfette, thanks to IHJ, here's something that allows you to download Youtube videos

http://javimoya.com/blog/youtube_en.php

You'll need a PC and Firefox, and a .flv player, such as the one you can download there:

xlittlelambx said...

Yay, free press. =p

I found the clip ages ago, but I decided to post it in time for the upcoming anniversary of the event. And it kinda ties in to the WTC movie. What timing.

Anonymous said...

Thanks xlittlelambx for posting this on youtube. I have been wanting to see this film short for a while but just couldn't find it anywhere.

Smurfeyshmoo said...

He has a really wonderful voice for narrations. He should do it more often. I personally enjoyed the woman voice also. I had to rewind it twice to laugh at it. And I could just picture him smiling at parts and getting excited and waving his arms...sigh. The man is wonderful.

SquallCloud said...

He sounds Jimmy Livingston-esque. I loved it. Took too long to download on my dial up so I only saw half.

What a beautiful story - it's like a fairy tale. I loved the music too - magical with a touch bit of sadness as well, knowing now what evenually would befall the Towers. I loved it. I really enjoy animation anyway - it's such art. Jake has a beautiful speaking voice.
