Taken the wrong turn off the highway and now stuck listening to the robotic, monotonous voice of your nameless GPS? Fear not, because Morgan Freeman, a.k.a. the honorary President of the United States, a.ka. God, is now available as a GPS voiceover.

Google's free navigation app, Waze, has decided to bestow upon stressed drivers everywhere the option to choose the smooth sounds of Freeman's voice for their daily commute, following in the steps of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mr. T, and Darth Vader before him.

The new feature is actually a marketing tie-in for Freeman's new film, London Has Fallen, the sequel to the 2013 film, Olympus Has Fallen, where Freeman plays Vice President Allan Trumbull.

The feature is only available for a limited time, so if you're a Morgan Freeman fan, or if you just want to live out your secret fantasy of having Morgan Freeman address you as the POTUS, then you can download the feature right now.

If you're not ready for that kind of commitment, you can check out this parody commercial made by JRT Comedy & Zuko Films back in 2013, long before Waze jumped onto the idea.
