Dramatic ASR

As someone who has nearly panicked on several occasions when reading a text translation of an innocuous voicemail that managed to make it seem as though someone was very angry with me over a mysterious disaster, I found this translation of some of John Scalzi’s voicemails pretty hilarious.  In my opinion, though, what really makes it, though, is the way Mary Robinette Kowal pauses and looks directly into camera after each transcription.
