You’ve Got Ride: The AOL ‘You’ve Got Mail’ Voice Actor Is An Uber Driver In Cleveland

This is a quick video of Elwood Edwards, the voice behind AOL’s “You’ve Got Mail”. Apparently Elwood was paid $200 for the voice work when he did it back in 1989, and now, 27 years later is an Uber driver. I mean it’s kinda sad, but $200 for 5 minutes of work back in ’89 is pretty sweet. Also, I’m sure this guy is rolling in residual cash from that movie You’ve Got Mail which I haven’t seen but assume is based on his life story.

Anyway, here is the video for your enjoyment. I fear for the day when Siri becomes a JustEat driver in Burbank.

Also, is it just me or does he not really sound like the voice?
