Let’s play the Pay Phone Payout’s Dash For Cash with the Phrase that Pays on HOT Z109.2 FM!!!

In the newest episode of PLA TV, we pretend to be radio DJs calling pay phones and get people to do things for money. The videos in this prank span quite a few years, from 2003 to 2009. RBCP’s first attempt at this nearly earned him an arrest.

At the pet store pay phone, EvilCal and Mrs. EvilCal join in for the fun. The mother of the girl who spotted our camera pulls up next to us and asks what we plan to do with the footage. She says she doesn’t want the footage on the internet because of perverts seeing her daughter. Because, you know, grainy YouTube video shot from 100′ across a parking lot is much worse than a pervert seeing her precious snowflake in person somewhere.

In 2004, at the Wilsonville pay phone, Heywood and Heather from messedup.net provide the creamy, chocolaty hazelnut spread and provide a perfect pay phone to film. Heywood’s lost footage showed video of those big girls attempting to run as Heywood comments, “Geez, try the McSalad!”

Most of the music in that video is provided by at independent band called The Rhodes, which I found on the podsafe music site. Originally I had much more fitting background music, but as soon as I uploaded it to YouTube, their system automatically detected the copyrighted music (even with me switching the levels and talking over it) and pulled the video down. So I just kind of threw on the first independent band I could find. I’ll put a little more effort into using independent music for the next PLA project. (Check out Jenn’s Guide to defeating YouTube’s copyright filters. I should try that next time.)

What would you ask a stranger at a pay phone to do, using the DJ ruse? I’d like to try this prank again someday, so make some suggestions in the comments!

    niceeeeeee! have you seen that game show in your head show? with joe rogan? you could do some things like that. raise the prize money, make crazier challenges like kiss a complete stranger. Say it’s a new canadian discovery channel show like cash cab called Payphone challenge or something, and that they are on hidden camera. you could give them like 5 minutes to find a cactus and they win $5000 dollars!

    Good video. Only took you what, six years to do it? LOL! It’s hard to find a payphone, let alone, one that allows incoming calls.

    The announcer is annoying as hell. He sounds like a faggit. Other then that it’s pretty funny.

    Used to call random home numbers and say we were a dj and then ask them stupid questions like, “how many left shoes are in your closet?!?!?” and when they answered we would “BUZZER, thats wrong!” You only have 3!! People got so worked up over this.

    I love how 109.2 isn’t even in the FM band, yet people don’t seem to notice.
