The announcer belting out "let's get ready to travel" is reminiscent of Buffer's world famous "let's get ready to rumble" ring entrances.

He describes the train as "weighing in at 600 tonnes of pure steel" and "undefeated, undisputed best train service in the world".

And there were a swell of positive comments when the video went viral on social media.

Twitter user Alex wrote: "Hell yeah, giving employees a bit of self expression, bringing a smile to people's faces. What's not to like."

And James added: "Brilliant….. Absolutely brilliant. Life's too short not to laugh."

Meanwhile, Yeshas said he is treated to the announcements frequently: "Take from Bank to home everyday and he just makes my day. He is brilliant, absolutely brilliant."

Boxing promoter Lee Eaton even suggested: "I want to find him & get him to do one of our weigh ins. Think he would be brilliant."

Another lucky commuter posted online: "He does it all the time, it's such a refreshing thing, especially in the rush hours when we are all acting like robots."

Another announcer, who works at Victoria, was shown bidding a train farwell by saying: “Respect, respect, rub a dub style."
