YES. YES. YES. YES.

Members only 24-7 stream of a phone in the Whiskey Media offices.

Have all of my money you crazy fools! This is great.

Apparently I am documenting records now, so drop me a PM if you feel worthy!

They just did the first call. It was a user talking to Will. Pretty neat! 
 
Edit: Apparently that was the second call!

I believe just before that Sparkly phoned in.

I was quite lucky to find that just before the very first caller ever on that thing got through. Weirdly enough it was a female member. What are the odds of that!

Anyway, too bad I live in Norway, making calling that thing way to expensive. But I know I will keep the feed running now and then.

Keep on doing crazy stuff Whiskey Media!

I don't know what it is because I'm not a subscriber anymore. Someone care to elaborate?

Ahh, I was a little bit late then.

@benjaebe: They have a live video broadcast of a big red phone. Anyone from the whiskey sites may answer the phone if anyone rings at any time and you just talk to them.

also audio quality sucks...

It's a 24-7 phone in the office that people can call in and chat to a random member. Call right now has been going on for a while now interesting talk.

@Sparklykiss: Hehe. Kinda cool being the first caller!

I wonder how many callers will be outside of the US....

I doubt there'll be that many, it isn't skype so the long distance charges will be ridiculous.

They are going to regret this in a day or so when they realize that the phone will never stop ringing.

#19 Posted by Dujun (59 posts) -

This is so stupid, what an absolutely fantastic idea.

#20 Posted by TurboMan (7542 posts) -

This is why Whiskey Media is the best website.

This is crazy, there's a red phone in our office with people calling!

#23 Posted by Jaqen_HGhar (898 posts) -

@Ezekeilpurger: Exactly. Which is why I won't be calling. Still cool to follow.

It doesn't make a loud noise or anything when it rings, so it shouldn't be too big a problem.

I feel creepy watching this.

On twitter one of the guys said the ringer is turned off.

Someone was wondering why he was watching a rock roll down a hill in the recent Rock of Ages Quick Look, and I said to him "Next up, watching grass grow" .. Lucky for us they skipped that and went straight to this phone. So now we can watch that =D

#30 Posted by VIGGO123 (552 posts) -

Wow, this is incredible. Never thought they would go through with that idea. So you get to talk to bothers to pick up the phone??

#31 Posted by CharlesAlanRatliff (5425 posts) -

This is fascinating.

#32 Edited by pickassoreborn (525 posts) -

It's like Whiskey Radio TIMES A THOUSAND. I think we all need a big red phone in our lives, right?

Edit - think I just saw Ryan's tattooed arm as he Babbabooed the caller and put the phone down on him. AMAZING SCENES.

#33 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

Wow, Ryan just hung up on a guy, haha. Asshat xD

The only thing it is missing is the glass cover.

#42 Posted by wumbo3000 (970 posts) -

I only have one question: If they have a camera (and audio thingamjigs) on this the entire day, doesn't that take up like, I dunno, a lot of electricity? That electric bill must be off the chains with this.

#43 Posted by AlexW00d (6275 posts) -

Was there just a mis-dialed number?

#44 Posted by Metal_Mills (2997 posts) -

I give a week before the red phone disappears never to be seen again.

#45 Posted by Mento (2544 posts) -

I'm sure I had other things to do today than watch a red telephone in real-time, but I'll be darned if I can remember what they were.

#46 Posted by Slaker117 (4842 posts) -

@wumbo3000: I'd imagine that they already have a pretty large electric bill.

#47 Posted by Metal_Mills (2997 posts) -

Someone got scared because a girl answered.
