rocket science


Several years ago, Rockwell International decided to get into the heavy duty transmission business. They were getting ready to tape their first introduction video and, as a warm up, the professional narrator began what has become a legend within the trucking industry. This man should have won an academy for his stellar performance. Now remember this is strictly off the cuff, nothing is written down, this became the biggest talk in the industry, vs the new product which they were introducing. I think you will enjoy this once in a lifetime performance from this gentleman.
