Seth Rogen lends voice to TTC announcements
Funny guy Seth Rogen wants you to do things.
Like practicing being a polite Canadian on the TTC by displaying proper ridership etiquette — this means keeping your feet off the seat, not eating food (especially tuna,) removing your backpack, and if you bump someone be sure to say sorry, because nine out of ten times they will say it right back.
The Canadian actor, producer and director lent his voice to 12 quirky public service announcements that will be played throughout the TTC subway system.
“I was enthusiastic to record messages for the TTC to help make everyone’s riding experience as amazing as it can be. I use public transportation, myself, and would not like people to be clipping their toenails around me,” Rogen said.
He isn’t joking, as part of the PSA program is to deter people from public grooming on the Rocket.
“I’m very proud to be Canadian, and I wouldn’t be who I am if was not for Canada. If asked to participate in something Canadian, I’m eager to do that,” Rogen said.
After a Twitter conversation with Toronto City Councillor Norm Kelly, Rogan agreed to participate in the etiquette campaign — similar to one he completed for TransLink in Vancouver last week.
“On behalf of all Toronto residents, I want to thank Seth Rogen for donating his time, his talent and his voice to these unique announcements,” said Mayor John Tory.
“It’s another example of how we’re moving the TTC forward in new innovative ways. I hope transit riders enjoy these announcements and look forward to hearing them on the TTC.”
