Mike Rowe Narrates Minnesota Family’s Home Movie
The guy with the unmistakable voice adds some Discovery Channel-style narration to this Minnesota family's home video-- and the results are hilarious.
I've been a fan of Mike Rowe for many years now. You might know him from the show Dirty Jobs, which ran for nearly 10 years (also on Discovery) that featured Mike roaming from state to state trying his hand at various jobs and, as the show's intro says, "...looking for people who aren't afraid to get dirty — hard-working men and women who earn an honest living doing the kinds of jobs that make civilized life possible for the rest of us."
He also hosted the show 'Somebody's Gotta Do It' on CNN, as well as the Facebook show 'Returning The Favor.' He also runs his own foundation (mikeroweworks.com) that promotes blue-collar trades, and is currently the narrator of several shows, most notably Deadliest Catch-- the show on Discovery that documents crab fishermen in Dutch Harbor, Alaska as they head out into "the vast Bering Sea..." as Mike says in pretty much every episode.
Deadliest Catch is currently airing its 15th season, and my wife and I still watch it pretty much every week. Mike's dramatic narration really makes the show-- especially given the dangerous scenarios in which the crab fishermen routinely find themselves.
Which is what makes the narration Mike did for the McMillan family (who live right here in Minnesota, up in St. Paul) and their holiday video from a few years ago video so funny. Check out how he makes a mundane video of everyday events seem incredible dramatic-- with hilarious results:
