We’ve never blogged about Hall and Oates, and probably never will again. But it’s actually long overdue. I mean, great music, great mustache and now a great link to technology. What can’t these guys do? Well, consider it an early Holiday present because Hall and Oates have graced the pages of the L&L Blog. Why you ask? Besides being awesome, they have a hotline. From MSNBC’s tech blog
You really have to have a hankering for Hall & Oates to do this, but if you do, it’s OK, you’re forgiven! Just call 719-26-OATES, and you’ll reach “Callin’ Oates: Your Emergency Hall & Oates Hotline.”
Wha? Yes, you’ll be offered up a choice of four songs by the ’70s duo: Press 1 to hear “One on One,” press 2 to hear “Rich Girl,” press 3 to hear “Maneater,” and 4 for “Private Eyes.”
All of it is apparently a “very viral” test of a new service from Twilio, according to The Atlantic Wire. Twilio describes itself as “providing infrastructure APIs for businesses to build scalable, reliable voice and text messaging apps.”
“It’s unclear if it was intended to be a marketing effort, but based on a new but very active Twitter account, @CallinOates, we’re pretty sure it is,” says Atlantic Wire.
While it’s disappointing “Did it in a Minute” isn’t an option, this is still the coolest thing since Rebecca Black’s Friday video.
Happy Holidays and you’re welcome.
