Rubbing It In Mobile Style
I'm an avid College Football fan--go Mizzou!--so RivalGrams.com is the greatest thing to happen since sliced bread.
Like most College Football fans, I'm constantly arguing and posturing about how good my team is. Of course, I'm usually arguing with another College Football fan who is in turn arguing about how their team is the best. It's really an endless conversation, because neither side is open minded, rational or impartial, and basically the "conversation" is all puffery.
Now with RivalGrams.com you can get the upper hand. The buyer chooses from a selection of "argument packages" that tailor your message (how fantastic your team is). The calls come from a live third party agent who has been trained in the art of arguing why your team rocks.
Why this is awesome and will work. 1) Your friend doesn't know the caller, so they're not expecting some random person to call and randomly assert your team rocks, 2) There's no opportunity for rebuttals, 3) The call can be anonymous so your buddy won't necessarily know you're behind the call, 4) It's a fantastic prank and it's cheap.
