TX Theater Turns Profanity-Laced Voicemail Into Anti-Texting PSA

News

"I was wondering if you guys actually enjoy treating your customers like pieces of s---?"

What do you do when a disgruntled customer leaves an angry rant on your voicemail? Turn it into a PSA, naturally.

The Alamo Drafthouse, a unique theater chain in Texas, came up with a hilarious video to inspire moviegoers not to send text messages during movies. The end result is comedy gold. ABC news has more:

About a month ago, Tim League [Alamo House owner] says, a woman was thrown out of one of the chain's 10 theaters for sending text messages -- and retaliated by leaving an angry voice mail on the box office phone line. League said he thought it was so over-the-top that it was funny. They used it as the public service announcement they play before films to encourage people to keep quiet.

"The reaction has been huge," League said in a telephone interview with ABC News. "People love it in the theater."

My favorite part is when she says she's going to go to a "regular theater" from now on where "people are polite." Watch below:
