Avatar Dialogue: Many a True Nerd, Dodger & Mel Blanc

 "Ble, ble, ble, that's all folks. We miss you Mel." Porky Pig

Avatar dialogue is common and heard in conversations with people. Avatar dialogue works by your avatar superimposes their face over your face in a viewing bubble and talks.  People do not realize they allow their avatar to use their voice to speak. Avatar dialogue is spontaneous, with third person language, different voice tones and mannerisms. 

Below are four links to watch with times and written dialogue of avatar dialogue from Strippin, Dodger, and Many a True Nerd. The last two links include the human responding to the avatar as though it was another person. Please note the rating. 

Strippin: (M rated) Note: Both of Strippin links have stopped working.
Dark Souls II #26 Walkthrough
1:50 “Come on, come on Sam. Get back in the zone. This game breaks you in many ways."
5:49 “Let’s get in there. Let’s get back in the game.”
7:42 “You’re better than this. You’re better than this.”
Dark Souls II #23 Walkthrough
0:26 “You have to be more confident in yourself Sam senpai. OK...OK my Japanese alter ego” 
In the record, Strippin had three male and one female avatar, which is not uncommon.

Dodger: (G rated)
0:15 “Well constructed thesis statement Dodger. Thank you Dodger.”
In the record, Dodger avatar does not look at the camera when we does the dialogue. If she did, I would be able to see her through her human's eye. For some reason, female avatars are shy around me as I am shy around them. She has a female avatar.

Many a True Nerd: (G rated)
Fallout 4: Survival Mode - Part 19 - Sanctuary
2:02  “Well that was subtle there Jon. You will give away your position very very quickly. Well done Jon.”
In the record, Jon has one male avatar

Mel Blanc:

A famous avatar dialogue person is Mel Blanc with some 1,500 voices. Below is a quote from an NPR story about Mel Blanc.
"Noel calls his father a method actor. He says he could watch his father in the sound booth, and without hearing the sound could tell exactly what character he was doing because he became the character."
Remember, when you avatar dialogue, you have the tone and mannerisms of the person you channel. I have channeled Porky Pig and stuttered just like the Porky.

 Other avatar dialogues are on this channel: Avatar Dialogues

Update:  2016 July 16 - Added viewing bubble, link, Mel Blanc. Fixed grammar.
2016 August 28 - Added Many a True Nerd because the avatar speak was not at all subtle.
2017 May 6 - change speak to dialogue 
2020 April 29 - gave quote to Porky
2021 March 25 - changed font, added in the records. added link to avatar dialogue channel
2021 May 14 - replace Strippin with Nerd in the post title
