Barkley explains scratchy-voiced Weight Watchers spot

If you’ve seen Charles Barkley’s most recent Weight Watchers commercial and thought his normally unmistakable voice sounded very un-Barkley-esque, you’re not alone.

Sir Charles tells us the spot was taped when he had the flu. To make matters worse, he had lost his voice the day before the shoot while doing a press day amid the NCAA March Madness.

Barkley says Weight Watchers was unable to reschedule the shoot so he had to tape while sick.

The Sixers legend says he wishes he could have recorded a voice-over, though we imagine that would have looked like a poorly dubbed kung fu movie.
