Clever Prankster Puts Up Fake Advertisements With A Real Phone Number And Records The Voicemail Responses 😂
(@fokawolf/Instagram)

Whenever you pass an advertisement, do you ever question its legitimacy even if it was enlisting competitors for a "Baby Eating" Competition?

Turns out, some people are more gullible than others.

The anonymous artist – under the moniker of "Foka Wolf," created a series of bogus advertisements with a working phone number printed on large format printers.

Her and her stealth team of five co-conspirators plastered them all over London to see if people actually respond to the sham posters.

Did they ever.


The experiment yielded interesting results. She discovered that "there is a demographic of people that will believe absolutely anything if it's presented right."

People might believe in this hoodoo on the facade of the Dianetics & Scientology Life Improvement Centre.




A few other silly adverts appeared in Shoreditch, Whitechapel, and on walls in the London Underground, according to Evening Standard.

Speaking of the Underground, one of the professional-looking adverts promotes an activity some already might be familiar with – Tube Dating.





For muggers who really want to up their game, they can enroll in classes to learn how to be a "Moped Mugger." The one-week course aims to help you to "spot people in phone trances" and "how to live with yourself."


On Londoner, Danny Pallett, said:

"My first reaction was, 'What? What is this?' and then it made me laugh."


Can a baby be more hungry than you? Or are you hungry for a baby?



Size matters.



One of the adverts calling for a ban on eating nuts incurred the wrath of one gullible caller.

In the voicemail recording, a woman calls the anonymous poster "Tory scum," referring to supporters of the British Conservative Party.

Press the play button to hear the trolling message.



There were at least 50 other voicemails responding to the prankster and 15 actual conversations.

The prank began as handwritten notes when the artist was suffering from a hangover. "I had a roll of stickers I used to draw faces on. One day when I was severely hungover I began just writing jibberish adverts on them."

Here's an example from the artist's earlier works that began 18 months ago.


"I enjoyed the process, so continued."

Foka Wolf wishes to remain anonymous so that her work wouldn't interfere with her other future endeavors. She also keeping a low profile to avoid possible law suits.

You can see other fake advertisements she's created posted on her Instagram page.

When asked if she expected the amount of responses to her prank posters, she said, "Yeah, it was my intention all along."

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
