Call center terror

Friday, January 21st, 2011

I believe that everyone has at least once in their life experienced call center terror; a computer answering you when all you really want is to speak to a real person to explain your urgent problem. Instead of a friendly person asking you how he/she can help you, you are forced into a bunch of unclear menus, and when someone finally picks up, you often get transferred back to…the same bloody computer!!

The guys of ‘Basta’, a Belgium tv show, decided it was payback time for Mobistar, a Belgium mobile operator with a questionable call center reputation.

The original clip is in dutch/flemish, but I found a YouTube clip with english captions, one of the best pranks in its kind, hilarious!! 😉
