Howard Stern has aired 5 calls off this 4th Touch-Tone Terrorists CD. By popular demand this release features 20 of the ever-popular HI-JACKED customer service calls! These unsuspecting callers THINK they have dialed up various businesses, but instead they have unwittingly reached some very bad intentioned impostors. Actual customers get fed up then scream, yell and raise hell when treated to sarcasm, insults, and outright corruption! It's been said You can't find good help these days... but it was never ever THIS bad!!! The cast of lunatic customer care reps include JUNKYARD WILLIE, JIM BOB the inbred hillbilly, BLADE the vomiting rocker, STU JAIMISON the arrogant big shot, and VLADIMIR the Russian with the attitude. Treat customers like this at your work and you'll be out of a job! Six of these 21 tracks include the angry auto insurance claim calls. How would you react if you called up your insurance company to collect payment due to an accident that was the OTHER driver's fault and the claims adjuster falsely accused you of drinking and driving, then in short order threw out your claim? You too would be just as furious as the callers on this CD!
The last in the series. By no means the least.

"It is amazing that the Junkyard Gang sustained its drive and ability to produce top-notch humor for FOUR CDs. This is the last album in the series that began in 1998, which seems like a very long time ago. The fellow named RePete (he does all the voices in this show, except for actual callers on the other end, of course) did everything to avoid repeating himself, and he succeeded - this CD sounds as good as the first one, although the second CD (Permanent Lapse Of Reason) remains my firm favourite (probably because the track on Retarded Water Company Surveyor featured there cannot be bettered).The highlight of this CD is insurance claim theme, explored on several tracks. Also noteworthy is the "Save Da Drama For Yo Momma" bit, and the character of a rude Russian is also very well developed. Incidentally, CD also features some creative sleeve notes from the author.If you ask me whether you really have to shell nearly sixty bucks for all four CDs, the answer is yes, you do. Unless of course you are prepared to miss on part of the enjoyment of this first-rate entertainment."
The BEST prank calls around

"Especially if you work in a support position, this is "THE" CD for you. And yes, I agree with the Englishman who notes you really should purchase the entire collection. I have searched high and low, (especially low), and the Touchtone Terrorists are, without a doubt, the funniest gang in the crankcall business. They outdo Roy Mercer, the Arnold clones, Jerky Boyz, and all the other nitwits. With one possible exception, a bisexual New York kid, some guy I forget the name of, who has his own web site. His skit with the gay elderly Jew is really the best ever, a classic work of art in a weird way. He is affiliated with freakfarm dot com, other than that I don't know his handle. Look for pcanarchistW.wav, although by now, surely, he has released an .mp3 version.
But getting back to the TT, I will say that when they "make" a call, they suck. The fast-talking guy gets no laughs. But when they "receive" a call, they excel. I figured out how this gang operated and here's the scoop. They posted fliers on people's doors saying "We tried to deliver your package but you weren't home. Please call customer service at xxx-xxx-xxxx". So, maybe 1% of all people were expecting a package and call the number and then the fun begins. They have a great system because the callers are highly motivated to continue the conversation. Prank calls where you call someone are more difficult, because the answerer typically is more willing to disconnect.
Anywayz, this is truly great stuff from professionals. Don't try this at home, though because with Caller ID so prevalent these days, you just might get your head knocked about by somebody without a sense of humor. The best way to experience prank call Heaven is listening to a professional in action.
So Amazingly Hilarious

"I cannot believe how funny this cd is. It is the last one and each cd gets funnier and funnier. Even though its just one guy doing the voices you still hear it through the customers point of view, getting transfered to some one new who is even more rude than the first guy. How funny was Jim Bobs laugh on "Save the drama" Stu Jamison is beyond funny not beleiving the woman when she told him she wasn't drunk. The telephone company was a complete riot. My favorite was "Respect for your customers" especially when Willie takes time to explain that because he's from the ghetto, thats why he's so rude, as if that justifies his attitude. I am not just saying that this is funny because I enjoyed it. This cd is worth the money and so incredibly hilarioius. It's great to listen to when you have company over. Just the fact that these calls have real people trying to call real companies
rather than pranking a real company makes it that much more funnier."
