Battletoads Prank Calls

Origin: Battletoads

As someone who worked at a Gamestop store, I can guarantee you this is one of the funniest and most anger-inducing memes ever to strike the Internet.

With a much stronger real-world presence than most memes, the Battletoads prank calls would have lulz-seeking gamers ring their local game stores and request a pre-order for the 10 year old game.

For those retailers in the know, this offered a quick laugh, but for those who had no business in games retail it amounted to countless lost manhours looking for a hotly anticipated title that simply didn't exist.
