Stop what you’re doing right now and go call: 719-26-OATES. It’s the number for the Hall and Oates hotline. When you call, the operator treats you to four options. To hear “One on One” press 1; to hear “Rich Girl” press 2; to hear “Maneater” press 3; to hear “Private Eyes” press 4.
Hear that blue-eyed soul and mustache power chords in action.
We’re fairly positive this is a viral marketing stunt for Pandora or Spotify, or some such service, because these things tend to be 90 percent of the time (we just made that number up, natch). However, if the Hall and Oates Hotline is the work of some fan to spread some holiday cheer and love for Daryl Hall and John Oates, then well played. Well played indeed.
Next time you’re having a bad day and need a quick pick-me-up, you know who to call. It ain’t the Ghostbusters. The debate Tyler Coates has when his friend Bobby told him to call the number is pretty much the reaction we’d have if we didn’t know it was a number for a HALL AND OATES HOTLINE!
