It has only been one day since the TTC launched their new PSAs starring none other than Canadian comedy actor Seth Rogen. But already some people are really unimpressed with the new announcements.

While a lot of Torontonians are happy to hear Seth on their commute, some are not on board with it at all and they have a number of different reasons why.

In a recent CTV poll, they found that just less than half of Torontonians surveyed liked Seth as the new voice of the TTC while 51% of people said they didn't. While it is a very small majority, the fact that it's so close definitely shows that at best, Torontonians are divided over the TTC's decision.

To be fair, there are most certainly people out there that are big fans of the PSAs but the no side also has some strong defenders online and they have taken to Twitter to share the various reasons they don't like Seth's announcements. 

The main thing that people seem to have against Seth is that even though he's Canadian, the actor is actually from Vancouver. A lot of Torontonians would have liked to see someone from the city, or maybe even the province, representing them. 

Another complaint is that the PSAs which feature Seth's signature sense of humour can come across a little judgey, which according to some people on Twitter is unnerving. 

The final reason that people have brought up against the PSAs is that there is too much comedy that the message gets lost, especially to people who may not speak English as a first language. 

The important thing to remember is that whether or not you like the new announcements, Seth Rogen did the project for free so really nothing was lost here.
