Dick Vitale set to star in debut of first talking Fathead by Chris Olds

Just when you thought you had heard it all from Dick Vitale, Fathead unleashes this.

The Livonia, Mich.-based company is set to unveil the world’s first talking vinyl wall graphics — and the mile-a-minute “Prime-Time Talker” from ESPN is the first subject.

Fathead is debuting new technology with the piece, which enables the image to “talk” with the use of a special pen. Vitale’s arsenal of phrases, like “It’s Awesome Baby,” “Diaper Dandy,” “PTP’er” and “Dipsy-doo, Dunk-a-roo” will be heard on his Fathead Jr., which will be arriving soon.

“We could not have chosen a better ambassador of collegiate basketball than Dickie V to launch and lead off our talking Fathead Line,” said Fathead CEO Patrick McInnis in a release. “We are honored and excited to be working with him again to provide these unique experiences and opportunities to both of our loyal and passionate fans.”

Fathead also is launching its “You’re A Winner Baby” Sweepstakes at, where fans can try to win Vitale-signed memorabilia, Fathead products and other prizes during March Madness.
