Ever wondered if there was an actual human being behind AOL’s iconic “You’ve Got Mail” recording? Well, there is! A real, living, breathing human being named Elwood Edwards recorded that classic phrase—along with “Welcome” and “File’s done!” and “Goodbye.”
Comedian Jim Breuer tracked Edwards down at Cleveland’s WKYC Channel 3, where he works as an editor and graphics supervisor. Breuer graciously recorded a short video so we could all hear Edward’s story—and hear him utter that simple phrase that altered the course of pop culture forever.
