Thanks, Al, for sharing this link. It seemed to me that the figure was
obviously computer-generated-particularly disconcerting were his hands,
too large, whenever he moved them, for the rest of him. I would assume
that the voice is also machine-generated: the "realism" of some of the
voices one encounters on telephone calls suggests that this Antony's voice
is as machine-generated as the rest of him. My, but he speaks slowly!
