2. 1-800-COLLECT

Commercials for 1-800-COLLECT were a ubiquitous presence on TV during the 90's and featured b-list celebrities such as Mr. T, Alyssa Milano, and Aresenio Hall urging you to save a buck or two. One commercial also featured OJ Simpson's mom—perhaps the fact he was still calling his Mom collect as a wealthy adult should have been our first clue.

This is always funny because it very rarely is perfect on the first try. It's like this: "Judy, you still there? Ok, one more second." "Mike? you there? We lost Mike...." "No, sorry, I'm here phone was on mute." "Gary? you there? Gary? " "One second, gotta get Gary on. Everyone hold." See also Office, Telecommunications, Work.
