hit the road, ami

The man who gave the voice to the Waze navigation app is asking for a cut of the money from the huge buyout that happened this week.

Waze is an Israeli navigation app that was bought by Google this week for a cool $1.1 billion.

Ami Mendelman was paid about $55 for his voiceover work in 2009, and now he thinks he deserves a share of the money!

Is he joking?

Would he have been willing to chip in and pay creditors if it had ended up as one of the failed start-ups?

If I was one of the owners, I would give him another $55 and replace his voice with someone else.

As the old joke goes, when you look up the word “chutzpa” in the dictionary, it will have his name there.
