Mr Smith is going to be in for a surprise when he finds out what's waiting for him in Room A...

It must be a deliberate stylistic choice, because there are other adverts with Mr Naked Big Voice too. I don't think Mr NBV is actually supposed to represent the boss though - I think he's a representation of the actual product/voice and as such is sort of a... spirit or idealised form, or something wry smile

The line shaft has broken down and he calls upon Mr Bangs to get it up again.

And notice Mr Bangs is called to Department 7 while the Department 7 staff are told to head over to Department 5, so Mr Bangs has the department to himself for 30 minutes. Unless that is also where Room A is, and he will be there with Mr Smith?

Yeah, really. He should at least put on a pair of pantyhose.

So when we hear a voice over a loudspeaker, do we now assume the person is naked?
