DECtalk Dennis Narrates Zoolander 2 Trailer

The Zoolander 2 Trailer is the geekiest trailer in a long time. It uses an 80s speech synthesizer and tells the story of how the universe came to be.

Geeks who have been already geeks back in the 80s remember the DECTalk speech synthesizer. For some weird unknown reason the makers of Zoolander 2 use it in the first trailer of the new Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson comedy.

The DECTalk Dennis voice is your classic computer voice. The DECtalk text-to-speech technology was developed by Digital Equipment Corporation in the early 1980s. It was based largely on the work of Dennis Klatt at MIT. That is why it is nicknamed DECTalk Dennis.

Why the Zoolander 2 producers are trying to reach hard core geeks with the first trailer is unclear. The teaser is not revealing anything about the story of the movie. Ben Stiller's character Derek Zoolander shows up for a couple seconds. He says stupid things about the Zoolander 2 logo and Dennis corrects him.

Zoolander 2 comes 15 years after the first Zoolander movie. Zoolander 2 is directed by Ben Stiller and written by Justin Theroux and Stiller. The film stars Stiller, Owen Wilson, Penélope Cruz, Christine Taylor and Kristen Wiig.

Zoolander 2 release is on February 12, 2016.
