The Prank to Avenge All Who Have Dealt With an Evil Customer Service Operator

If you've ever had to call a large communications company with a customer service issue, you've most likely experienced the hopelessly not-at-all helpful operator from hell. Thanks to a program on VRT Belgium, you can now experience a small sense of vengeance for tortured customers everywhere.

The show executed the following stunt: A group of pranksters concealed themselves within a large steel container with a fully operating interior telephone system, and had the container dropped off at 5:00 am in front of Mobistar, a Belgian communications company with notoriously bad customer service. The exceedingly large container was inconveniently blockading the employee parking lot. The only information given was a customer service number on the exterior of the container, which rang through to the pranksters inside the container.

Desperate to get the obstacle removed before roughly 2,000 employees arrived for work for the day, the Mobistar operators were then tortured by hopeless customer service...

Innovative use of the broad and sadistic reach of reality television. Too bad for me that I did not first get a a flavor of how poor the Mobistar customer service is. And too bad that the victim of the prank was some reasonable security officer, and not a deadbeat Mobistar customer service employee.

I'm a little disappointed to see that they wasted this awesome prank on some security guard as well.

This wasn't about the security guard. The container blocked the entrance to the parking lot, forcing every employee to find alternate parking accommodation on their way into work that morning. This prank was effectively carried out on all the 2,000 employees that work in the building on a daily basis!

I can see that, but the majority of the prank was dealt on the security guard through the phone. Im cant imagine many people are going to be furious over not being able to go to work through unforeseen circumstances. If anything, many people might see it as an excuse to slack off.

The security guard seemed like a pretty nice fellow actually!

BRilliant!!! This used to be called a "happening" it was a tool of modern art. Now we see how not avant-garde modern art is after being avant- garde for a century. Briliant happening!!!!!!
