John Moschitta Jr. (born August 6, 1954 in New York City, New York) is an American actor notable for his uncanny ability to speak really, really fast. He's appeared in over 100 commercials as "The Micro Machines Man," as well as in a 1981 ad for FedEx, and provided the voice for Blurr in the Transformers television shows and film.

Moschitta had been credited in the Guinness Book of World Records as the World's Fastest Talker, with the ability to articulate 586 words per minute. His record was broken in 1990 by Steve Woodmore who spoke 637 wpm and subsequently by Sean Shannon who spoke 655 wpm on August 30, 1995, but Moschitta's notoriety as a TV and film personality lives on today.
