Viral video: Happiest Olympic worker

LONDON – It was sarcastically described as “pure enthusiasm” from a 2012 Olympics worker in London, and now that enthusiasm has racked up more than a million views online.

YouTube user "ollygourley" uploaded the video on July 27 when the games were first getting underway.

It shows a worker with a megaphone trying to encourage the crowd with a very dry sense of humor, which the uploader described as “genius.”

With a very monotone delivery, the unidentified female worker welcomed visitors to the opening ceremony.

“Welcome to the official Olympic opening ceremony,” she said. “The gates are open – 2012, it will begin – who’s excited?”

One person in the crowd cheered, and a few passerbys chuckled.

“Yes, thank you, single lady,” is all the worker replied with.
