Meet the best train announcer of all time

We would commute just to hear this man announce trains.

THERE YOU ARE, standing on the platform after a long day, waiting for your train home.

Now just imagine – IMAGINE – if this guy was working the PA.

This video was originally published earlier this year, but is going viral now. Happily, Vice magazine tracked the man down at London’s Victoria Station and interviewed him.

His personal philosophy:

It’s all about having good manners for people. When you give respect, you get respect back. No matter where the person comes from or who the person be, once you show some respect, you get it back. Big up the people here, man… Peace and love, Rasta bless, you’re the best.

Iarnród Éireann, hire this man immediately. Pay whatever it takes.
