Seth Rogen offers to voice TTC announcements

After Seth Rogen offered to voice Vancouver’s TransLink transit system, Toronto wanted a piece of the action.

Rogen had no plans on being a voice of transit in Canada. But the offer came following Vancouver’s decision to drop Morgan Freeman, who had recorded a series of announcements that would be played on SkyTrain and buses for the next two months.

On Thursday, TransLink announced it would put the campaign on “pause” in light of the allegations in a CNN report that eight women have accused Freeman of inappropriate behaviour.

“Yo if they need a replacement now let me know,” said the Canadian actor.

And of course, Councillor Norm Kelly pulled one for Toronto, asking Rogen to sound our TTC.

Lucky for us, Rogen is down.

And the TTC seem to be into the idea too.

Let’s hope this becomes our daily reality.

Seth Rogen’s laugh alone should be a reason for a spike in use on our transit system.
