Can I do the door announcement a little too well?

March 20, 2009, 3:07 PM

You know, my friends and coworkers say I can do Metro’s door announcement a little too well. So I’d like you to take a listen to my impression of Metro’s current door announcement:

“Doors opening! Step back to allow customers to exit. When boarding, please move to the center of the car.”

“Step back, doors closing!”

And then compare this with the real thing, seen here on Breda 2007:

So what do you think? Is it a good impression, or do I do it just a shade too well? You be the judge…

Web site: I also did the "Step back to allow the doors to close" announcement as well, but I don't have a recording of it at this point, unfortunately. But there it is...

Song: *ding ding* "Doors opening! Step back to allow customers to exit. When boarding, please move to the center of the car."

Quote: So there you go, I suppose...
