I find it really weird how 99% of german ads have weird robot voices speaking.
Recently I noticed that an ad from last year that had semi-natural voices is now rerun, but dubbed with a robotic ad-voice, so maybe companies just found this is more lucrative when selling to germans?

(With robot voices I mean speech that is heavily edited in a way that makes it sound extremely unnatural)
