    A fun way to get back at bad Customer Service

    Take a look at Elaborate televised prank on Belgium's terrible phone company - Boing Boing

    Basically, the phone system is Belgium (run by Mobistar) is pretty bad. Some pranksters placed a huge container blocking Mobistar's parking lot. There was a Customer Service number on the container, which went to the pranksters (who were hidden inside). When Mobistar called to complain, they were hit with transferred calls, being put on hold and then cut off.

    haha that was amazing.
    To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

    I enjoyed this a lot. I was imagining this happening at the call center I worked at for VZW a couple of years ago. This would have created a lot of havoc for those on the early shift. These pranksters really thought this one out well. I like the live music they were using.

    V16 - apparently the live music was the same music the call center used during their "hold" period - well thought out indeed
