At least he admitted it. I guess.

People baffle me!

According to YouTube, a Welsh pizza complaint to ASDA is related to Cheryl Cole.

But that was a glorious punchline. And it gave some hope to the poor soul who has to man the ASDA help line.

Just for those wondering: yes, it is a prank call, and there's more by the same guy.

Maybe you've opened them upside down.

Here he calls ASDA again to seek reassurance that he will not get in trouble for the large egg which he found in the box of small eggs.

I laughed at the original clip too thanks. Nice subtle prank calls.

It's great to see a prank call that's about being funny and not about being an a-hole.

Asda is a British supermarket chain.

That was pleasantly not mean-spirited (as these things tend to be). Great punchline!

I think I've solved the problem of why my lawnmower does a bad job.

I received bad pizza as well.Don't remember going the lenght to make such phone calls..Great humor..

I was briefly a phone operator and these were the types of calls that kept me going late at night. My favorite was a guy that talked like an old blues singer and played the "I'm a man" break on his harmonica after every sentence. It was the Pre-Jerky Boys/Punk'd days, so I'm sure the prank calls were less frequent than they are now.

You installed the lawn upside-down?

No, just the blade :)

I don't understand how this is a prank. There aren't any insults or yelling. Maybe I'm missing some really good curses and stuff because of his accent?

wow, classic case of capitalism gone wrong.

Great. Just Great.

Now they will add a step to every call center script in the UK to check if things are upside down.

I already lose 15 minutes of my life every time BT connects a new internet customer in my area and the techs disconnect my service but now in addition to the blinking light quiz, cable checking, power on, DSL filter crap I have to go through every time they are now going to ask if my router is upside down.

This is not funny. It is ominous.

Humour isn't all about insults or yelling. This would be filed under 'good natured' or 'self-deprecating'. It's a refreshing change from the norm for this kind of thing.

Okay, so this is totally taking the piss right? I mean, these are staged, prank calls not real calls right?
posted by 1000monkeys at 1:33 PM on October 13, 2010


Oops, never mind I saw the comment above that it's a prankster. Some of his other calls are okay, but most of them are kind of lame.

He is gonna get an ASBO for this
