C-SPAN gets its fair share of wild calls, but this one has to be one of the best as of late.
‘Jack Strickland’ called into C-SPAN with a tale reminiscent of one from 90’s sitcom, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, featuring Will Smith. ‘Strickland’ has a history of C-SPAN prank calls. See here, here, and here.
“Hi, good morning. I’m Jack Strickland. I just want to make it clear I’m calling from Bel Air, California, but I’m originally from Philadelphia, specifically West Philadelphia. But anyway, I was actually discussing this issue with a friend of mine while I was in Philly, uh, it occurred on a basketball court,” said Strickland.
“At some point during the conversation, a couple of guys who were essentially up to no good starting making trouble in my neighborhood. I got in one little fight and my mom got scared and said, “you’re moving with your auntie and uncle in Bel Air.””
And that’s when C-SPAN cut the call.
