Feel Good Friday: London's Victoria Station Gets Irie

Camille Standen interviews the reason why Victoria Station may be the subway station with the most positive vibrations in the world. Jamaican-born train conductor Carl Downer assists passengers with their travels and brightening their day.

"Carl was born in Jamaica, moved here nearly 20 years ago and has spent the last six brightening up the days of anyone who walks past him with calls about Rastafarianism and positivity," writes Standen. "I've seen that lead to lots of Sloaney white guys in their early 20s fist bump him and say 'bless up' in a cod-Jamaican accent, which is always one of the worst things in the world, but we can forget about that for now."

We found a video of Downer (great name, right?) in action below. But check out the embedded video in the article for more of his Rastaman vibrations.
