I say no.
Please don't hate me if you disagree.
Reminds me of Nixon's head in Futurama ... and one of the better quotes to Zapp Brannigan: "My God, cover yourself! I didn't live a thousand years and travel a quadrillion miles to look at another man's gizmo!"
I find the anti-smoking commercial this seems to goof on almost as bothersome as the continuing onslaught of Viagra, Levitra, and related weiner meds.
This video's humorous aspect aside, users of those electronic larynxes typically sound much more mechanical.
Incidentally, seeing and hearing someone using an old Western Electric electrolarynx, along with seeing the little hole in their throat, is what made me give up smoking cold turkey almost twenty years ago.
