Pingo, a prepaid international calling card service, announced it’s sponsorship and official time keeper judge status for Harvard University student’s world record attempt for the longest phone call conversation. Pingo sees this as a perfect opportunity to connect its long distance phone service brand to people trying to stay in contact with friends and family living overseas without concern for the cost of expensive telephone calls.
A Harvard University student group will be staging the longest phone conversation between two people as both a performance art installation and a world record attempt scrutinized by Guinness World Records.
“This project maps one absurd, hilarious, commercial institution (super-low art) onto another (super-high art) in playing by both of their rules at once. The project explores the irony of exhibiting interactions that are by definition private in an exposed, public setting.” Says Mariel Pette, director of the Harvard Generalist.
The call attempt will be hosted at the Adams Pool Theater in Harvard on January 19th & 20th to watch two people talk over the course of at least 43 hours, 8 minutes, 55 seconds. See more details at AWorldRecordAttempt.com
Pingo’s own Internet Marketing Manager, Brian Hawkins will be on stage as one of the official time keeper to assist in judging the world’s longest call attempt. This attempt will be also be broadcasting live on Ustream.
