You Can Now Get Morgan Freeman's Voice for Your GPS
Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman, who has played God twice, can now help us regular people get out of traffic.
Freeman is the latest celebrity voice to be added to Google’s free traffic navigation app, Waze. That means that the star of Driving Miss Daisy can now help you drive to the Taco Bell Drive Thru or guide you through L.A.’s notoriously gnarly traffic.
To make Freeman narrate your drive the same way he narrated The Shawshank Redemption and The March of the Penguins, simply open the Waze app, go to Settings, click Voice Language, and select “Morgan Freeman.”
The new voice feature is a marketing stunt for Freeman’s upcoming film, London Has Fallen, which casts Freeman as the vice president of the United States. On Waze, Freeman addresses the driver, as if he or she were Mr. or Madam President.
Freeman isn’t the first actor to sign on with Waze to promote a movie. Both Arnold Schwarenegger and Kevin Hart have directed traffic via Waze before, but when the voice of God warns you to avoid the 405, you’d better listen.
