As a warm up to a BT show and tell, we decided to go back to the time of tapes and answer phones. To celebrate the ‘I’m not here speak after the beep’ message that was once a mainstay of every boozy bachelor pad that has now been replaced by that annoying voice from your network operator.
Cue a challenge; create an answer phone message for 3 celebrities, picked at random. Somehow we managed to select the recently departed Michael Jackson, the entertainer Boris Johnson and that annoying band Raygun, who had their own viral pulled by their record company. And yes on reflection we could have picked a better selection.
Night creatures call, your butt is mine, your talk is cheap
Something whispers in my ear and no message could be clear-er
Answer right now
If you don’t like what I’m saying just beat it!
It doesn’t matter if you’re black or white
You’re out of time
Sorry we can’t get to the phone right now, we’re probably drinking cocktails in the morning or something equally outrageous so please leave a message and we’ll get back to you
To leave a hate message, dial 1
To return a recently bought album, dial 2
If you’re our annoyed record label boss dial 3
Or hold and our manager will be with you shortly
I can’t get to the phone right now as I’m probably relaxing in my new summer house enjoying a drink with my best mate Dave, laughing at the former mayors expense…
