The oddity is the voice acting. All the dialogue is performed by AT&T's Natural Voices. On one hand, that's weird and it sounds really creepy. It's totally distracting from the rest of the video. On the other hand, it's a novel use of the technology, and I could see this kind of automated voice making its way into machinima. But for now, mostly weird. The dialogue itself is just fine, but the robo-voice just makes me feel like someone's selling me something.
