Old Seventies Newsreel Really Oversells the Subway Experience

A newsreel from the seventies — which, as Animal points out, "seems angled at tourists" — really went to greath lengths to exaggerate the wonder and magic of the subway.

"A modern concerto," says the narrator, describing the hot, smelly, crowded transportation system. "Ever the same, ever changing. Moving. Exciting. Always something new. Pleasurable. Memorable." 

Pleasurable. Memorable. You will always remember the guy you saw pleasuring himself.
