Hopewell Junction, NY (PRWEB) August 4, 2006
MonkeyDoo, a free online entertainment and prank website recently launched a service that would get any true prankster excited dubbed “The Ring Prank V.2.” What the service does is basically in the name, “The Ring Prank.” The way it works is, Person A (the prankster) creates a link by filling out a form on MonkeyDoo that asks details which will be used for the prank. Person A then sends the generated link to Person B (the prankee). Person B sees “The Ring” video (as popularized in the movie) with their name superimposed in various frames (creepy). At the end of the video, Person B then receives a call. The call is coming from “000-000-0000” (if Person B had caller id). If Person B picks up the phone they will hear a creepy voice say a custom message originally defined by Person A. Usually the message is something along the lines of, “You Will Die in Seven Days.”
Advancements in computer-generated voice and VOIP technology have allowed for services like these to be possible. Currently MonkeyDoo only offers the prank to phones in the US and Canada, due to high international rates. Version One of “The Ring Prank” took advantage of SMS text messages at the end of the video but the addition of the computer-generated voice call has propelled the internet prank to popularity.
