Here's how Torontonians really feel about Seth Rogen voicing TTC transit announcements

It looks like your TTC commute is about to get a heck of a lot more enjoyable, as Canadian funny man and Vancouver native Seth Rogen is the new voice of the TTC’s transit announcements.

That’s right, you’ll be able to hear Rogen’s legendary voice announce a series of quirky public service announcements focused on etiquette and courtesy while riding the TTC.

The TTC announced Tuesday, July 31, that the announcements would be starting today and will feature comical messages asking riders to be more considerate of their fellow passengers, all in an effort to make taking the TTC a more positive experience for all.

The Twittersphere, of course, blew up when the news first broke, and was greeted with a very positive response from Torontonians.

Of course, not everyone agreed with the TTC’s decision to work with Rogen.

Some users went as far as accusing the TTC of stealing the idea from Vancouver’s TransLink, who announced Rogen was its new public voice last week.

Not to mention a number of people said they would have preferred the TTC to feature local talent instead.
