If you see a phone number in a commercial that doesn't begin with "555", maybe you should call it!

After watching an Old Spice commercial, a man who noticed the phone number the woman wrote down did not begin with 555 and decided to call it. He won Super Bowl tickets and MORE for his troubles! This wasn't exactly a contest as much as a marketing easter egg. After seeing the new Old Spice Super Bowl ad on Mashable, a viewer decided to call that number. And who was waiting on the other line? None other than the Super Bowl gods themselves. It was Old Spice giving away free Super Bowl tickets to any lucky fans who got through. Buzz60's Jen Markham decided to track down a winner and realized, that oh, it happened to be the producer sitting four feet away from her, Scott Knowlton. Knowlton had initially reached out on the number to get information for a news story. Turns out, he got far more than he expected: free Super Bowl tickets and much, much more....   <a href="http://news.yahoo.com/video/phone-number-old-spice-ad-152800235.html" >SOURCE</a>You can see the video of this story by clicking the link.<a href="http://news.yahoo.com/video/phone-number-old-spice-ad-152800235.html" ></a>

Very cool! "
But I wonder how he wrote the number down so quick?!?! lol I had to pause the video so i could actually read the numbers. Maybe he had it recorded on his DVR.

He was surfing the web when he found it, so I'm sure he could pause, rewind or watch it again.

Oh, ok. I didn't watch the video in your source link. This is kind of related .......... I was watching an episode of Two and a Half Men and Alan was feeling a bit lonely and grabbed his laptop. (you know what he's gonna get online for. lol) Anyway, as Charlie is walking out of the room (which he accidentally walked into), he's shaking his head with disgust and tells Alan to checkout a certain website. I caught the site name and went to it and it was a real site BUT it was a gag site. It was pretty funny said that all of us viewers were naughty or something close to the affect. The design had the show's logos and such splattered on it. No Malibu girls in pudding. lol I went to it just now and it redirects to their Facebook page. malibupuddinggirls.com
