If you were a kid—like, a really young kid—in the ’90s, you probably fell in love with a purple dinosaur named Barney.
“In this dream, Barney passes out,” Joyner said. “And I have to give Barney mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. So on the way to the audition, I’m sitting at a stoplight, and something says “Look up.” So I look up, and there’s this billboard. It says ‘Breathe life into your vacation — Southwest Airlines.’
Joyner got the job.
“We would do what we call ‘dinosync,'” Joyner said. “As I have my headphones on, I can literally hear him taking his breath. And knowing that as he’s about to speak, I’m almost inside of him, knowing exactly what he’s about to say.”
