Ever wanted to know what Morgan Freeman's voice sounds like on helium?

Well now you can find out as the 76-year-old actor  takes a couple of breaths from a helium balloon in a new promo for Through The Wormhole, a U.S. science documentary series he hosts on the Science Channel.

The ad begins with an unlit Morgan Freeman saying in his patented deep tone, "In unusual situations..." Then you see him take a breath from a red helium balloon and his voice goes high and cartoonish. "You don't always get what you expect."

As he moves closer to the camera and into the light, his voice starts to level out. So he takes another breath from the balloon.

You can watch it below.

Through the Wormhole returns for its fifth year June 4 but it's unlikely Freeman was enough helium balloons to get him through the season.
