You Can Get Brian Blessed to Record Your Voicemail

By Chris Mills on at

Yes, you read that right. Brian Blessed, actor, legend, and possessor of the finest vocal cords in the kingdom, can record you your very own voicemail. How, you ask?

It's simple: be one of the first 100 people to buy an HTC 8S or 8X on O2, take a cheesy selfie of yourself with the phone, post it to @O2 with #brianmail, and wait for the lyrical baritone magic to happen. We've just checked, and an 8S with a 24-month contract, all in, costs £332 over the lifetime of the plan. That's totally a reasonable amount of money to spend for the best voicemail ever.

I don't care that it's a shameless marketing stunt, and that I'd be selling my Twitter-soul to O2; I would be perfectly happy never answering my phone again if I had this voicemail. Now out of my way, people, I've got a phone to buy. [O2]
