Why Are Prank Calls So Popular?
Prank calls have been around for eons. They are a great, quick way of providing entertainment from the comfort of your own home, they often give long lasting memories of people’s reactions, and don’t require too many skills to make them work effectively.
Sure, there are lots of other ways to wind up your mates or those you feel need a bit of lightening up, but compared to other types of windups such as practical jokes, fake emails, and fake newspapers etc, the prank call still comes out on top.
Why are prank calls so popular?
- Because there’s relatively little to go wrong in a prank call
- You can easily think of someone to prank by scrolling through your phone book
- It’s fun creating a prank call script of your own
- It’s challenging making the prank believable
But the main benefit, is that when someone is on the phone, often you will have their undivided attention, compared to trying to pull off a prank in person which will inevitably have more things to go wrong that are outside your control.
Don’t get us wrong, a great practical joke can be priceless, but then again, so can a great prank call. And it’s something you can do right now and have some laughs within minutes!
