Encyclopedia > Prank call

A prank call, also known as a crank call, hoax call, phone scam or phony phone call, is a form of practical joke committed over the telephone. As with all practical jokes, prank calls are generally done for humorous effect, though there is a thin line between humor and harassment. Prank phone calls began to gain an America-wide following over a period of many years, as they gradually became a staple of the obscure and amusing cassette tapes traded amongst musicians, sound engineers, and media traders beginning in the late 1970s. Among the most famous and earliest recorded prank calls are the Tube Bar prank calls tapes which centered around Louis "Red" Deutsch, and the Lucius Tate phone calls. Comedian Jerry Lewis was an incorrigible phone prankster, and recordings of his hijinks, dating from the 1960s and possibly earlier, still circulate throughout the country to this day.

Even very prominent people have fallen victim to prank callers, as for example Queen Elizabeth II, who was fooled by Canadian DJ Pierre Brassard posing as Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chrétien, asking her to record a speech in support of Canadian unity ahead of the 1995 Quebec referendum.[1] Two other particularly famous examples of prank calls were made by the Miami-based radio station Radio El Zol. In one, they telephoned Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez and spoke to him, pretending to be Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.[2] They later repeated the prank, except that they called Castro and pretended to be Chávez. Radio El Zol was also fined by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

Reverse calls, baited/unbaited calls

Typically, prank calls are known for being outgoing phone calls to the victim; however, a method known as the reverse prank call is performed when the victim is actually the caller. As opposed to the hit-and-miss results of traditional prank calling, this style of prank call usually produces humorous results due to the fact that the caller actually believes what they are calling is real, further validated by the prankster answering the phone in a manner that confirms they've reached the right number. This tactic has also been performed by Fonejacker, who posted advertisements regarding a flat for sale, which lead victims to an automated "flat-line". In the baited variety, the prankster would typically place an advertisement enticing the caller to call, as The Jerky Boys have done. In the unbaited variety, pranks are performed as the calls happen by chance either from the victim dialing a misdialed number, such as people misdialing the number to a popular pizza delivery service, or from the victim attempting to telemarket or cold-call (as is the case with many of Jim Florentine's calls). Fonejacker is a Channel 4 comedy programme featuring a series of prank calls, originally broadcast in May 2006. ... This article needs cleanup. ...

The television show Crank Yankers is a series of real-life prank calls made by celebrities and re-enacted on-screen by puppets for a humorous effect.

The Simpsons

During the early years of The Simpsons, a popular recurring gag involved Bart making prank calls to Moe's Tavern, inspired by the Tube Bar prank calls. The calls usually followed a set pattern: Bart would ask for a person, Moe would shout loudly for the person Bart asked for, and Moe would catch on only after the bar (usually) erupts in uproarious laughter, also threatening violent revenge upon catching the perpetrator.

Moes Tavern (also known simply as Moes) is a fictional bar seen on the animated series The Simpsons. ... The Tube Bar prank calls are arguably the most famous series of prank calls ever recorded. ...


Moe never seemed to realize that it was Bart who made the call. Once Bart even told Moe that he made prank calls and Moe still did not catch on: Bart: "Well I make prank phone calls." Moe (in a happy voice one uses when talking to children): "Good for you."


"People" for whom Bart has asked include:

  • I.P. Freely (I pee freely)[3]
  • Maya Buttreeks (My butt reeks) or (My, your butt reeks!)
  • Jacques Strappe (Jock strap)[4]
  • Ivanna Tinkle (I wanna tinkle)
  • Amanda Huggenkiss (A man to hug and kiss)
  • Al Koholic (Alcoholic)[5]
  • Bea O'Problem (B.O. Problem)

  • Oliver Klozoff (All of her clothes off)[9]
  • Hugh Jass (Huge ass)[10]
  • Haywood U. Cuddleme (Hey would you cuddle me)
  • Ollie Tabooger (I'll eat a booger)
  • Ahmed Adoudi (I made a doodie)
  • Ima Wiener (I'm a wiener)
  • Igor Tappenow (I got to pee now)[11]
  • Avery Onesboogers (Everyones boogers)[12]

One backfire on this formula was a call to "Hugh Jass" (huge ass), as there turned out to be a person in the bar named Hugh Jass.[10] Jockstraps, also known as athletic supporters, are mens undergarments for use in sports and other activities. ... Manneken Pis of Brussels. ... Since its coinage, the word homosexuality has acquired multiple meanings. ...


Another backfire was when Homer was running the bar and didn't know how to carry out the prank when Bart asked for Ollie Tabooger (I'll eat a booger). A third was a time where Mr. Burns called Moe's by mistake while looking for Smithers, and was threatened by Moe who thought it was a prank call. Finally, in a flashback scene to Homer and Marge's youth, Marge tries to call Homer (whom she believes goes by the name "Elvis Jagger Abdul-Jabbar" because of his shyness), only to get Moe to threaten her when she asks for his name. After hanging up, Moe mutters "And that's the origin of that!" In the second "Treehouse of Horror", Bart, cast in the role of the boy with mystic powers, makes a prank call to Moe's where Moe tells the barflies "I'm a stupid moron with an ugly face and a big butt and my butt smells and I like to kiss my own butt!" Mr. ... Waylon Smithers, Jr. ...

Sometimes the joke can be taken too far, especially if the prankster succeeds in making his victim believe the scenario is real. Prank call comedian Jim Florentine (who mainly takes incoming calls from telemarketers and turns the tables by performing pranks on them) has had the police called on him on more than one occasion for taking his jokes too far. During one call, Florentine tells an insurance agent that, rather than pay to keep an elderly woman alive, he is going to go to the hospital and smother her with a pillow.[14] After the call, the agent called 9-1-1 and gave them Florentine's number and the address on file, and the police arrived at his home with guns drawn. However, when the police arrived at the scene and discovered it was actually a prank, the officer asked, "Don't you think you're a little old for this?"[15] Jim Florentine (August 18, 1965) is an American comedian best known for his characters Special Ed and Bobby Fletcher created for a series of prank phone calls featured on the Comedy Central television show Crank Yankers. ...

Tension was also caused in December 2005, when a Catholic Church-owned radio station in Spain (COPE) played a prank on Bolivian president-elect Evo Morales. The hoaxer pretended to be Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, congratulating Morales on his election[17][dead link]and saying things like, "I imagine the only one not to have called you was George Bush. I've been here two years and he still hasn't called me".[18] The Bolivian government protested to Spain, and the real Zapatero called Morales and apologized.

In the United States, the Telecommunications Act of 1996 makes some prank calls a felony with penalties of up to two years in prison, and possible fines (depending on severity). However, such penalties are rarely carried out. As an example, the Chicago shock jock Erich "Mancow" Muller, after being criticized for the extensive use of prank calls on his radio show, broadcasted the sarcastic remark: "Reality check for you people: Chicago's the murder capital of America. The police don't care if you get a prank call."
