Imagine waking up one day and getting thousands of messages on your phone from numbers you don’t even recognize! That’s the exact dilemma one father experienced after his sons played a prank and put his mobile number on a huge billboard.
Michael and Christopher Ferry wanted to make their father’s upcoming birthday a bit different than usual so they decided to do one thing. They thought it would be funny if they hired a billboard in New Jersey and put their father’s face and contact info out in the public. So they shelled out $2,000 for that.
The billboard read ‘Wish My Dad Happy Birthday — Love, Your Sons’.
Chris Ferry, their 62-year-old father, had no idea what they did until he began receiving messages – and his phone has since been ringing non-stop.
The story has since gone viral among many news sources. In an Inside Edition interview, Chris shared:
“Every state in the Union, Luxemburg, Kenya, Philippines, Caritas Island – that little island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, they tried calling me.”
According to Chris, the first birthday message he got was from a man named Nick.
“I said, ‘Who is this? I don’t recognize the number.’ ‘Nick,’ [they said]. ‘Nick who?’ ‘You don’t know me but heard it is going to be your birthday, I saw it on a billboard,'” said Chris.
Of course, Chris did what anyone of us would’ve done – he immediately rushed out to confirm and check the billboard himself. Plus he took a selfie with it in the background.
Meanwhile, Michael said about the stunt:
“Our idea behind it was to get people that know him to call him, we didn’t really think it would be thousands and thousands of people.
“But we are taken back by it, and we’re very excited to see my dad smile because he really deserves it.”
With that said, happy birthday Chris! Make sure to plot your own revenge one of these days.
