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? Advertisements

I Got Next: Teens React To Playing Super Metroid

In honor of the 30th anniversary of the original Metroid game for the NES, this is a video of teens playing Super Metroid for the SNES. So they are celebrating the 1986 game by playing the 1994 version on a completely different console? Makes sense to me. As always these videos are pretty good, but the kids this one aren’t half as annoying as they usually are. Although there is a very real moment where the blonde girl reveals what is likely a bout with depression around the 2:50 mark… Enjoy!

Teens React to Windows 95

Here is another installment of Teens React/Kids React to stuff we all grew up with. The point of these videos are to usually to make us all feel old or to make kids today look spoiled and dumb. Or maybe it’s just harmless fun. Either way, the real shame is that these poor kids didn’t get to learn about Windows 95 from FRIENDS stars Matthew Perry and Jennifer Aniston…although these kids probably have no idea who they are or what that show was… Also, for those of you who are starting to feel old, try not to think about the fact that the 19 year old in this video was born 2 years after Windows 95 came out… Enjoy!
