THIS IS STATE AND LAKE — The voice actor behind the CTA's bus and train announcements drives everywhere.
So we bought him a Ventra card.
Lee Crooks — who, to be fair, lives in Milwaukee — agreed to take a trip around the Loop on the "L" with us, all while performing Chicago-inspired dramatic readings in his official CTA voice.
We rounded up some iconic Chicago lines: Blues Brothers, Blago, Da Bears and more.
See the video below, and stay tuned for an extended behind-the-scenes/outtakes video on Monday.
You can watch our original 2013 video below to see how Crooks records announcements for the CTA, and you can find the original story here.
