Reviews

  • Pros: 

    Is infuriatingly realistic!

    Cons: 

    Perhaps a bit too short.

    I hate conference calls more than life itself. This is a beautiful way to harness the power of evil for a good cause.

I've been using in their beta, and shockingly... it actually does fool my colleagues. Also, even when it's not lunch time, I still use this to have my coworkers go into the conference room, so I can have the office to myself.

@15greenberg I've listened to the audio a million times and it still triggers me lol

Hey Product Hunters 👋 We're super excited to share our fake conference call with the community. We teamed up with MobyDish and a few NYC comedians to build this product. The office lunch rush is stressful. If you're not fast enough, you can be left with the scraps. We've built a product that can give you a competitive advantage. Simply generate a calendar invite (with our dial-in info) from our site, customize the invite, send it to your coworker, and watch them suffer. We will be here all day to answer questions, listen to your feedback, or we can just talk your lunch today 🍔

This is so funny- love seeing a product that is trying to channel the awfulness of conference calls into something fun/useful.
