If you’ve ever had the urge to pick up the phone and call Sweden, your time has come! There is now a hotline on which you can talk to a “random Swede.” The number is: +46 771 SWEDEN (written in all numbers, it’s +46 771 793 336).
What will you talk about? What WON’T you talk about?! But probably Alexander Skarsgård, mostly, right? Yeah, us too.
Here’s how we imagine this all playing out.
SWEDEN: Hej, you’ve reached Sweden!
ME: Hi! I’d like to speak with Alexander Skarsgård please.
SWEDEN: Sorry, he’s on another call. Can I take a message?
ME: IS IT ANOTHER GIRL? I’M COMING OVER THERE. (Hangs up)
SWEDEN: Hej, this is Sweden!
DENMARK: Hello Sweden, I was wondering, is Maja there?
SWEDEN: Maja? Let me check. Maja who?
DENMARK: Her surname is Normusbutt.
SWEDEN: Sure, I’ll ask! (Calls out) Has anyone seen Maja Normusbutt?! (Pause) Anyone? I’m talking about Maja Normusbutt! (Pause) DENMARK I’M GOING TO KILL YOU!
SWEDEN: Hej, you’re talking to Sweden!
DIANE FROM AT & T WIRELESS: Hello! I was wondering if I could speak to the decision maker in the home?
SWEDEN: Ja, that is me.
DIANE FROM AT & T WIRELESS: Fabulous! This is Diane calling from AT&T Wireless. Are you satisfied with your current cellular and long-distance service?
SWEDEN: Diane, you know what, we’re right in the middle of our dinner of marinated herring…
Have something you’d like to say to Sweden? Give ’em a call! Or tell us what you’d say (Simpsons-themed prank calls included) in the comments.
