Flashback: Answering Machine Jingles

Back in the day, you could still pretend you weren't home by turning your answering machine on. The folks who created this ad understood that you might not want to stress over taping your own greeting, though. Enter "Crazy Calls," pre-recorded machine jingles conveniently available on a cassette tape(!) With lyrics like "Nobody's Home!" to Beethoven's 5th, and "Call Me If You Can-Can," your friends and family would probably look forward to calling and not reaching you. George Constanza knows what I'm talking about.

Lol, I had my friend sing the George Constanza song as my voicemail a few weeks ago, but my friends and family started to leave me hate messages whenever they called me so I had to change it

When my brother and I were younger, we copied George Costanza's message to our answering machine. That thing was just too funny!

I loved that commercial!!! :rotfl: I think I was like 11 or 12 but I so wanted my mom to get an answering machine so we could get this. Wait for the beep! You gotta leave your name! You gotta leave your number! :rotfl: Oh, and I loved George's answering machine message set to the tune of America's Greatest Hero. Priceless!
