Feh.

For $299, I could get the guys who played Coy and Vance Duke, or Walter Koenig to come over and do some light yard work.

Talk about selling out! Its not even funny, to me, although on the surface it appears humorous -- and I have noticed it before i saw this thread, actors like craig whats his name as 'the NEW bond' staging stupid commercials for stupid projects -- to stage some elaborate carcrash/explosion just for a stick of deoderant.

WE GET IT -- YOU HAVE ALL THE F*CKING MONEY AND CONTROL THE GOV WITH IT

Or if you win "Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me" you can have Carl Kasell do it for free.

Carl Castle will do it for less.

That was so awesome.

Huh. Just might be worth it.

Cool fundraiser!
I'd be in for Mila Kunis doing Meg Griffin or Seth doing Brian...
 
2012-11-22 09:13:06 PM
Here's the Site

Pretty cool idea. Each celeb is doing 50 recordings so first come, first serve.
 
2012-11-22 09:16:22 PM
If you're name is Kevin, George Takei has you covered - no charge.
 
2012-11-22 09:19:03 PM
Or I can get a little sauced and record my own bad impersonation.

It's not like anyone calls me. There have been weeks when I didn't talk to anyone other than to ask for a pack of smokes.
 
2012-11-22 09:20:02 PM
Kevin Pollack would do a Shatner voicemail message for a sandwich.
 
2012-11-22 09:24:15 PM
Isn't there an app for that?

I spent five years working for a company that made and supported voicemail servers for most wireless communications carriers.

All it takes is ten seconds to migrate your account to a new server and make that $299 be totally lost.

Please read your contracts. Your voicemails will be protected, but your greetings will not.
 
2012-11-22 09:31:21 PM
...or a two for one with Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes.

Hello. You've reached Alan Rickman...

FirstNationalBastard: Feh.

That made me chuckle. Then I googled Coy and Vance for fun... Vance died last year :(

dnrtfa, but this seems like a fun idea. I hope it goes to charity.

/I still have a recording of Rick Dees reading my voicemail from like almost a decade ago
//is he still a thing?
 
2012-11-22 09:53:50 PM
Weird. I was just pondering how much fun I could have by video slicing something into the Forest Gump speech in front of the reflecting pool in DC. You know, the part where it cuts out and they end it with something along the lines of 'that was awesome man'.

Yeah, Internet smartasses on Fark like to mock "the cloud", but how many of them still use answering machines? If you use a voicemail service, you have no right to judge.
 
2012-11-22 10:05:35 PM
Is Stephen Hawking on the list? How about Marcel Marceau?
 
2012-11-22 10:05:55 PM
$25 gets me a meth whore bj, and at least an R rated message (not counting the doctor bills & medications).
 
2012-11-22 10:11:14 PM
Friend of mine worked in a sound studio. They had Samuel L. Jackson come in to do some work for a movie. For fun, he then did everyone's voice mail messages for them.
 
2012-11-22 10:12:57 PM
Wow! For the first time in all my years here I can say...I submitted this with a funnier headline.

If you're spending $299, the message should be longer than 20 seconds.

/would want Will Ferrell doing some weird free form message, preferably with John C Reilly

Came in here to point this out. Glad to see it's been taken care of.

FTA: From Dec. 3 to Dec. 9, a limited number of 20-second MP3 messages will be recorded by each celebrity on a first-come, first-served basis for fans to do with as they wish. 

Probably just emailed to you, so you'll always have it.
 
2012-11-22 10:29:17 PM
Tom Hanks would give it his all, Shatner would totally "phone it in" (pun intended)
 
2012-11-22 10:38:02 PM
Kinda bummed Gary Owens or Kevin Conroy aren't options.
 
2012-11-22 10:38:41 PM
You gotta wait for the beep, you gotta leave your name you gotta leave your number, wait for the beep!
 
2012-11-22 10:39:22 PM
mine is mercedes mccambridge from the excorcist inviting people to have coitus with their savior

but no, not really

it's Dr. Klahn

BIP!
 
2012-11-22 10:40:58 PM
for $20 you can get a call from Mr. Belding

Erin Gray is totally tempting though.....

it's worth busting the balls to have Tom Hanks recite "although I've made millions I'm not not above doing this trash for the cost of grocery money". way to have no pride, you Hollywood dooshbags.
 
2012-11-22 10:53:42 PM
I would want Kathleen Turner or Harvey Fierstein to do it. Either one is fine, you can't really tell them apart.
 
2012-11-22 10:57:06 PM
Liam Neeson avaiable? *clicks link* That is completely unfair.
 
2012-11-22 10:59:26 PM
But will they sing "Nobody's home, nobody's home! " to the tune of Beethoven's Fifth?
 
Now THAT was a message.
 
2012-11-22 11:02:52 PM
no Jason Alexander?

You get an MP3 file. Play it into your phone to re-record the greeting.
 
2012-11-22 11:13:38 PM
The availability of the recording diminishes the value. The appeal is the rarity of the recording.

"Hello, this is Patrick Stewart, and you SHALL NOT PASS without leaving your name and number......I wasn't even in that....you suck..."

Welp. I know what to get my dad for Christmas now.
 
2012-11-22 11:49:27 PM
I'd pick Morgan Freeman: "Hello, you are hearing this outgoing message in my voice."

CSB

A radio station I once worked at was an affiliate of "The House Of Blues With Elwood Blues", a blues show Dan Aykroyd does in character. Anyway, as an affiliate, you can email them custom voice work for him to record..."brought to you by BLAH BLAH Sundays at nine on BLAH BLAH" to use as a local "tag" for a show promo. Well, just fer shiats and giggles, I included a voicemail greeting in the copy, and he did it! So for years, I had Dan A as Elwood as my voice mail greeting!

Dude, I'm really sorry, but you didn't think that one all the way through.
 
2012-11-23 01:43:07 AM
I want to have the person who does movie trailers do mine.

IN A WORLD...where the person you're calling is not available...LEAVE A MESSAGE and she might get back to you...OR SHE MIGHT NOT
 
2012-11-23 01:51:28 AM
