I'm making a short video for my 'extras' playlist people pronouncing 'Uranus' one after another.  If you would like to be included, here is what I need from you within the next few days:

  • A video of yourself saying 'Uranus' while holding a card with your name at the top and the state / province / subnational unit and country you grew up in at the bottom.  (Not where you currently live) Don't worry if your camera makes the text backwards.  I can flip it in post-production. 
  • Say 'Uranus' as you normally would, not as you think you're supposed to.  Make sure your audio is clear and loud.
  • Bonus points if you're a native speaker of a non-english language and can say the name in your language.  If so, please also include the name of your language on the card.

I can't promise I'll use all submissions, but you have a better chance of being used if:

  1. The audio is clear.
  2. You or your background is ammusing somehow.
  3. You get it to me ASAP. (Deadline is a vague 'in the next few days')
