Telemarketers are known for their relentlessness. No matter the circumstance, they'll push through to make a sale.
And naturally, whenever Darren "Whackhead" Simpson receives a call from one, he makes it his mission to push their limits in the hopes that they'll hang up first.
Remember when he faked a break-in and near-death experience?
In this prank, Whackhead feigns interest in purchasing the telemarketer's insurance product. He goes on to break his precious piggy bank and slowly count all his copper coins.
Darren "Whackhead" Simpson is an avid vinyl record collector and was recently gifted an assortment of records from a 73-year-old fan from Parow.
While going through the collection, Whackhead came across a 'Best of John Berks: 1983' record. John Berks was a former radio personality and the original prankster in South Africa.
Listen to this John Berk classic prank where he calls from a licencing department about a dog complaint. Does the prank still hold up today? We think so!
