About

*Soundboard Prank Calling" refers to the use of online soundboards to imitate a famous actor/actress or other celebrities during a prank call. This popular scheme requires access to an online soundboard, usually of a famous actor/actress or celebrity.

Origin

The concept of soundboard prank calling most likely began sometime in late 1990s, following the release of Macromedia Flash and the earliest known internet prank-call radio show “Blackout” in 1995.

Generally, a soundboard is built by compiling audio clips of a chosen subject into an interactive Flash-based sound player. The date on which this phenomena presented itself is unknown, and many speculate that it is almost as old as the Internet itself.

Spread

Sooner or later, people began to use these boards for their own dastardly, bastardly plans (also an unknown date)featuring them in phone calls, programs such as Teamspeak, and etc. to confuse and infuriate their unsuspecting victims. Hundreds, if not, thousands of videos of this practice are scattered across YouTube.
