Prank Phone Calls
I was pointed to a relatively hilarious post over at Kotaku.com today. Apparently a Half-Life 2 player decided to call into a talk radio show called Coast to Coast AM and pretend to be the main protagonist from Half-Life 2, Gordon Freeman.

Coast to Coast AM is described on Wikipedia as follows.

"Coast to Coast AM is a late-night syndicated radio talk show in the United States which deals with a variety of topics, but most frequently ones that relate either to the paranormal, or to alleged conspiracies."

Here is the great YouTube recording of the phone conversation. If you aren't familiar with the Half-Life games, just know that the caller describes the situations in the game perfectly.

HAHAHAHA. This is even funnier if you've listened to, and cracked up about, Coast to Coast as much as I have. There are some ghost episodes that have definitely freaked me out though, I'm not gonna lie.

Mike Heh, you've listened to this before? Do they talk about similar ridiculous government conspiracies?
