There haven't been many days in Sneak's life where he's wished he was called Gordon, but mobile operator O2 might just have changed that.
In a bid to make the gloriously unhip Windows Phone 8 handsets from HTC a smite more alluring, O2 has convinced national treasure and all round shouty bloke Brian Blessed to record personalised voicemail messages for it customers.
If you're one of the first 100 to buy the a Windows Phone 8S or 8X by HTC and notify O2 by incorporating the hashtag 'brianmail' into a tweet, you could have a Blessed record your very own voicemail message.
“I’m thrilled to be lending my vocal talents to the good folk at O2. I’m planning to have a lot of fun with the voicemail messages, and leave the caller amused, confused and generally bewildered,” said Blessed.
And what better way for callers to be greeted on those occasions you're too busy to answer than have him bellow: “Gordon's alive! Just not able to come to the phone right now. Please leave a message.”
