Now You Can Have Morgan Freeman Narrate Your Commute
Morgan Freeman's deep, uniquely soothing voice has narrated everything from a political campaign ad to the magnificent march of a bunch of penguins across the perilous tundra of the South Pole, and now, his authoritative baritone can be the voice of your turn-by-turn directions during your otherwise monotonous daily commute.
