(YouTube) Video People love to complain at companies on Twitter, hoping to publicly shame them into complying with their demands. Then there are the people who prank call those complainers to publicly shame them for complaining   (youtube.com) divider line 26

Meh.  Good idea, bad execution.

Ya... good opportunity but he didn't push hard enough

"You need to apologize, or I'll cancel your account."

"You can't be serious... "

"Yes, this is Sirius. I'm calling from Sirius".

What a douche.

You can always tell the people who have worked in call centers before from the people who haven't in threads like these...

The first Twitter video is a better IMO. Instead of just asking for apologies, we rip up a lady's mail at her and we get threatened by a pretend lawyer.

"Way to stick to your guns, sir."

Yeah, i respect the sentiment, but the perpetrator simply doesn't have the talent of humor. He should outsource the calls to The Jerky Boyz or something.

Solid premise, with better writers and ideas you could really have something here.

And stop laughing during the calls.

I miss the Jerky Boys...

Funny idea, but why limit yourself to "we need an apology" calls?

For the Sirius call, instead of threatening to turn off the person's service, get them to tell you what their favorite channels are and then tell them they can't have them any more. Tell them their account will be limited to Polka Fantasy and the Ryan Seacrest Hour.

For the rental car, tell the person that the DEA had a drug-dog sniff her car and they found 100 kilos of meth in the trunk and a receipt with her name on it was right under the drugs. Or tell her that the car was returned damaged and you're going to repossess her car to pay for the damages.

Troll of the lowest form. It's the male version of an attention whore & the url at the beginning I suppose was supposed to make people react as well. Lame and not funny at all.

I don't know. I understand some of the "consumerist" style complaining deserves this sort of thing. I only listened to the first two, but they were legitimate complaints - the guy making the calls just seems like he's being a dick for no reason. Which is a magnitude worse than the people tweeting about a bad customer experience.

Maybe if they hadn't called people who seemed to have legitimate complaints it would have been funnier. As it is, several people are going to receive unexpected bills next month because this asshole told them he shut off their service.

Customer service exists to keep customers in the service of the company. Fark this guy.

/I did lol at the "Yes, this is Sirius".

This is such a bonus for me, pissing off Twitter users and then pissing off everyone here!

This was very enjoyable. Twitter users.......no one cares what you tweet. LOL!

What a terrible troll. You go after people with baseless complaints, you twat.

We can take solace in the fact that the AIDS will probably take you out soon.

No, they're not pissed off. Most think what you do has potential. What they're saying is that you're not really witty about it and that the potential for something that would be actually funny is missed.

I checked your website a bit. As I said, not a bad idea, but you should find someone who would make those calls for you who would be better at it. THEN you'd have something that would probably storm the internet.

I'm not sure I see the value in further antagonizing screwed over users of utilities, but, whatever floats your boat.

You may want to take the vids down, though, as impersonating a business enables them to file a tort against you for "passing off".

There are also laws in some states about recording phone calls without both party's permission.
