A while back I was on TonyStewart.com website looking for Tony’s position in the Sprint Cup points standings. I tend to use his site instead of NASCAR.COM because it is just easier for me to find the information I am looking for not to mention it is the home for all things Tony Stewart related so I can check to make sure that I didn’t miss some important news item.
Anyway- several weeks ago I saw an ad on his site for CelebCall- because he is now one of the listed celebrities. CelebCall is a service where for a nominal fee you can fill out a MadLibs-esque script using pull down menus and have one of their celebrities call someone you know. It’s a recording and there are samples on the website of what it sounds like (but you do not get to hear your particular choices in the sample- for obvious reasons I suppose). According to the website, the phone call looks like it is coming from your own phone number (the buyer’s phone number) – probably to increase the chances of a successful pick up should the recipient of the call be screening calls. I admit I was intrigued. But then I got the information I was looking for and promptly forgot about it. Until last week when I was again checking Tony’s points in the standings (yeah I do that too much I agree but I can’t help myself- I have to know where my team stands- pun intended) when the CelebCall ad caught my eye again.
