You've Got Mail Guy Uber Driver

Before social media, even before MSN Messenger...there was AOL's Instant Messenger. And we ALL remember this guy's voice.

If you are an internet veteran, you'll remember AOL's Instant Messenger. Oh yes, there was nothing more satisfying in the world then getting home, booting up the computer...dialling up the internet (yes, dial) and hearing those famous words 'You've Got Mail!'.
