For Some Reason, the ‘Best Voicemail Ever’ Has Been Resurrected

In case you forgot or never heard, nearly three years ago, a merry prankster left a rambling, sometimes scathing, often times amusing 17-minute-long voicemail for Big Spaceship CEO, Michael Lebowitz. At the time, it was intriguing enough that Lebowitz himself posted about it on his blog. Well, not sure if one Sam Hyde is the man behind the infamous VM, but whatever the case, the Brooklyn-based comedian and his Million Dollar Extreme crew have reposted the diatribe, which as you’ll hear is supposed to come from Lebowitz’s conscience. Though it was originally sent in 2010, the messages within, which promote Big Spaceship as “Chuck E. Cheese for people in their early 30s who wish they were in their late 20s” and a shop where folks are “programming Flash games” and “dropping bomb ass tweets,” don’t seem too dated. Whatever the reason for resurrecting the beast, it’s a decent lunchtime listen, though headphones are strongly recommended.
