they changed the length of the advert and needed a different audio, so they probably just had someone else do it.

Last time I saw the add, the opening few words was still Maria, basically introducing herself, then the rest was a voiceover. The advert has been shortened also, I'm a big fan of Maria but I must admit she has a bit of a high pitched squeaky voice sometimes!.

That ad sucks. It's even worse now it's clearly not Maria speaking...

if you've seen her canon commercial , you should hear why they dubbed her. People forget that she is a teen and during that time the voice is changing even in girls so I assume it was too awkward for advertisers.

I thought she sounded just fine in the Canon commercial. No need to change her voice at all.

Maybe because she still has too strong of a russian accent. Please don't respond by giving me the ''she's american crap''...
