“Pranking is one thing, but once the prank is up, let it go. You called my establishment four times; the first time I knew who you were and hung up on you (we do have caller ID); the second time I told you that you were not who you said you were and hung up; and then you called back twice more. It stops being a prank at that point and starts being harassment. I can shrug off and even find humour in the first one or two times, but at the third, you\’re done. Please keep that in mind and be responsible in your pranking.” -email from a Blockbuster employee in Fairbanks, Alaska

You guys better appreciate the editing I did on this show!

- This is the aftershow, where I don't really remember what happened, other than making wacky sound effects while trying to get phone numbers from pizza places.
07-24-2012 – Flip All The Switches:
- Captain Janks pranks a news show so he can scream Howard Stern at them. Janks is awesome – here’s his website, here’s his Twitter and here’s his YouTube. Here’s the Princess Diana prank call.
- Sorry I edited out your part, Mr. Bridge. It was nothing but phones ringing.
- Click here to see PLA license plates, including the one Ryan called in about.
- Matt tells a beautiful story about coy ponds.
- Song is Feel Good Time by Pink. Stan’s not really into Pink, but last week I found out from him who the Pink sample stuff is from.
- Zan tells us a story even more beautiful than Matt’s, about the time RBCP cost him a bunch of money by tricking him into buying toasters and CB radios. Here’s a link to the 2008 story on phonelosers.org.
- Here’s a link to the toaster/CB radio prank video that’s tricked a lot of people.
- Here’s the soda cup prank video that Zan loves.
- Here’s Richard Cardo’s gnnr-inspired post.
- Geek Squad employee copies a LADY’s racy photos.
- Here’s an archive of Default Radio, an old hacker show.
- We still need to find those circuit breaker calls we did! If anyone knows where to find them, let one of us know. The 2 that Legend put on his YouTube are here and here.
- If anyone recorded Saturday night’s conference, send it to RBCP!
- Here’s a thread about letting RBCP prank your coworkers
- MC Chris’ apology video and here’s a cool new song about the incident.
Since I edited so much from the show, I just kept all the aftershow stuff here on the same file. I chopped a lot out of the aftershow too. We mostly call up convenience stores for customer surveys and circuit breaker flipping fails.
07-31-2012 – We Love You:
This week’s show has video! If you prefer, you can watch a 3 hour uStream broadcast of the show and the aftershow. A bit of the aftershow is missing from it, though, because uStream apparently cuts off after 3 hours.
- Things get off to a shaky start because of sound issues. RBCP’s Skype sound card stopped working, so things were configured differently and were confusing.
- TheN from AfterTheTone.org made a song from love and semen for us. He also used AutoRap.
- We finally found the breaker calls! They are here and here. Thanks, Barry Peanuts and Updyke Underhill, for telling us where to find these clips!
- Click here to listen to the entire Cap’n Crunch FourSquare check in calls. Welcome to FourSquare, Cap’n!
- Click here to listen to the entire 7-26-2011 aftershow, which is where you’ll hear some of our Burns Clean Team calls and then later the circuit breaker calls.
- Tombstone and RBCP call some Geek Squad employees.
- We’re broadcasting on Blue Planet Prank Radio, Madhouse Live, Cacti Radio and uStream.
- Music is from this video where Richard Cardo admits that he was the JonBenet Ramsey killer and that the PLA had nothing to do with it. The song is Point of No Return by Expose.
- FBsearch.us is the new youropenbook!
- twitter.com/needadebitcard is a Twitter bot that retweets people who post pictures of their debit cards.
- Here’s the aftershow, where we spend over 2.5 hours calling pizza customers. If you want to see the video version of this episode, plus the regular show, it’s embedded below.
