Housemates Recreate Their Morning Commute Using Their Shower As London Underground
| Last updated
Three housemates have re-created their morning commute while stuck at home - by using their shower as a London Underground carriage:
Rowan Akin-Smith, 26, and his housemates Felix McKechnie, 27, and Pablo Hutchinson, 25, are all 'avid riders' of the tube, using it daily for their commute to and from work.
So to break up the monotony, they thought they would re-create one of their most familiar passtimes - riding the tube - from their own home.
The funny video shows the three young men all crammed into the shower cubicle in their bathroom, just like being crammed into the tube at busy commuter times.
Rowan even managed to find an audio clip on YouTube of the voice of the Jubilee Line, calling out which station their makeshift 'tube' was calling at.
The three lads took it in turns exiting and rushing onto the 'tube', squeezing past each other as they stepped through their sliding shower door.
And one of the housemates, standing out of shot of the camera, kept flicking the bathroom light switch off and on - to replicate the tube travelling through the tunnels.
The funny clip ends with all three of them squeezed together in the shower cubicle, with Pablo - carrying a briefcase - reading a copy of The Economist magazine, as the other two glance over his shoulder.
Rowan, who works in sales for a software company, said: "People keep saying it's important to keep a routine now we're stuck working from home.
"So we thought, why not re-create our old routine? We've got nothing else to do in the evenings. We actually did it as an entry for a virtual pub quiz we did on Friday night.
"Each team had to submit a funny video. We had half an hour to submit it, but once we'd had the idea, it only took about ten minutes to film."
He added: "We're not missing travelling on the tube at all. I've got to use the Northern Line to get to work, so I'm actually rejoicing at not having to do that."
