The London Underground's most popular announcer will totally make your day.

For six years, Jamaica-born Carl Downer has shared Rastafarian wisdom with strangers passing through central London's Victoria Station in order to cheer them up, according to Yahoo News. His performance, which sometimes references MC Hammer, was caught on video this week.

“Chill out, kick back, no need let anybody cramp your style,” he says in the YouTube clip above. “Rastaman driver, take these beautiful people to their destination."

In an interview with Vice Magazine, Downer explained why he does it.

I feel happy when people smile because of me. You know why? With the economy nowadays, you don't know what people are going through, and if they can take their mind off all the things going on in their personal life, in their job life, that one moment of happiness can make a big difference.

He added, "I like to see people happy, man –- seriously."

We'd like to transport this dude to New York City.
