As part of the promotions for the Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy fragrance, you can now send "personalized recorded messages" from Britney to the object of your affection:
Consumers can go to www.midnightfantasybritneyspears.com and enter information such as a recipient's first name or home state as well as a phone number or e-mail address.
Armed with that information, VariTalk will assemble Spears' pre-recorded blurbs to create a tailor-made message that can be sent by phone (land line or cell) or e-mail.
(via USA Today) I assembled a message for my husband this morning, and it is hysterical (and the call arrived seconds after I filled out the online form). Highly recommended.
hahahaha! Just did it too.
That was absolutely hilarious! Thanks for posting about it.
In the interests of continuing to trick my husband into thinking I'm much more normal than I am, I will wait until he's safely away from the phone before I try it. Good grief. I wonder how on earth this will sell perfume?
I did it twice, had to test the alternative scenarios, LOL…
LOL! Just completely baffled poor H by having Britney tell him he lived in Alabama! (It didn't offer non-US options). Clever though – you can't hear the joins (she surely didn't record every possible combination?).
The technology works very well! I wonder what happens if you choose a really rare name though? I assume they just leave it out.
OMG! That was hilarous! The only problem is that you can't input same-sex scenario hookups. I've tried it all different kinds of ways but there's no getting around the pre-precorded pronouns. And out of all celebrity based fragrances you would think that Britney would allow for a little girl on girl action. Too bad…and I had the perfect girl to send it to. I'm sure Diddy would have included that option if it was his website for Unforgivable!
Yes, and my other complaint is that it doesn't ask for anybody: the speech just goes to whomever picks up the phone, making it somewhat more useful to people with their own cell than for landlines.
And oh — yes, we need Diddy to do the same thing!!! It would be hysterical.
