Donavan Freberg (born April 6, 1971 in Los Angeles, California, U.S.) is an American photographer, advertising creative, voice actor, and writer.
Freberg is probably best known for appearing in a series of commercials for Encyclopædia Britannica produced by his father, satirist and advertising creative Stan Freberg. The 1988–1993 advertising campaign was the most successful in the company’s 200-year history and Donavan was elevated to cult status. He was parodied on Saturday Night Live, dubbed a “Pop Intellectual” by GQ magazine, and named “The Most Annoying Geek of the ’90s” by TV Tome. He was spoofed in a 2003 feature in The Onion, and in 2006 was chosen for VH1’s “100 Greatest Teen Stars,” ranking number 83.
