I'm sure that the large crop of volunteers for the London 2012 Olympics are happy to be there, but could this be the happiest Olympic worker of them all? Tasked with directing people into the stadium for the opening ceremonies (surely, an exciting job,) this volunteer takes her responsibilities to the next level by entertaining crowds with her dry deadpan humor.

As she speaks to a sparse crowd and asks, "who's excited?," only a single "woo" responds. This sparks the volunteer's hilarious deadpan rant. The woman is so funny that whispers from the crowd can be heard saying, "She should be a stand-up comedian."

The video has gone viral quite quickly, getting more than 200,000 views since it was tweeted by @ollygourley on Friday. This is certainly an unconventional, but appreciated way to get into the Olympic spirit. Stats for Comic Olympic Volunteer Videos Trending: Older & Average
