Sometimes I have to comb through the recesses of YouTube to find junked videos and forgotten footage that is just amazing. Sometimes it comes to me. I am the YouTube Treasure Hunter. Every week, I brave spider videos, footage of tornadoes and the occasional inexplicable zit-popping upload to find some of the rarest jewels YouTube has to offer.
Oh, there’s gold in them thar hills, but sometimes you just have to wade through a ton of crap to get to it.
This week’s treasure? Normal prank phone call videos are just whatever. But this clip is anything but normal — from the sheer hilariousness of an overwhelming radio announcer pitching the sort of “SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY! YOU’LL PAY FOR THE ENTIRE SEAT, BUT YOU’LL ONLY USE THE EDGE OF IT!” style announcer to the extremely harried, profane wife, this clip is PURE GOLD! The John Cena prank phone call is a radio show calling up to “offer” a Pay-Per-View wrestling show to a lady who absolutely HATES wrestling but absolutely can’t stop answering the phone. For some reason, listening to people absolutely losing their shit is one of the most delightful experiences a fellow human can experience and this clip delivers in spades!
Stay tuned for next Sunday, treasure hunters! I’ve got something that really blazes! No, it isn’t my stoner neighbor … you’ll just have to tune in.
