A couple of months ago, before this blog started, I called eBay’s customer support and I was put on hold for a whole hour. It would have made my day miserable, but the on-hold music they played made my day: it’s Weird Al Yankovic’s parody song eBay!
Couldn’t stop chuckling for the first half hour despite the gruesome wait … I just couldn’t get enough of it even if loops every minute or two! I kept thinking: this can’t be true!
Yes, the eBay’s official hotline plays Weird Al’s parody of eBay to their customers while they wait! They didn’t even bleep out the word “crap” as in “this crap, shows up in, bubble wrap, almost every day“. Well, I guess they have to, as “crap” is essential to the spirit of the entire parody!
I love these people. They really have a sense of humor, and they are willing to make fun of themselves!
