Airport Announcements      Email this entry 

A few English guys decided to go to the Heathrow airport and play a prank on the airport announcers. The announcers were tricked into saying the recordings below under the pretence that they were foreign names! Hilarious!

Foreign NameSounds Like
Arheddis Varkenjaab and Aywellbe FayedI hate this fucking job, and I will be fired
Arhevbin Fayed and Bybeiev RhibodieI‘ve just been fired, and bye-bye everybody
Aynayda Pizaqvick and Malexa KriestI need a piss quick, and my legs are crossed
Awul Dasfilshabeda and Nowaynayda ZheetOo-ah, that ‘ s better and now I need a shit
Makollig Jezvahted and Levdaroum DeBahztedMy colleague just farted, and left the room, the bastard
Steelaygot Maowenbach and Tuka PizinizteeStill, I got my own back and took a piss in his tea

"We'd go and sit on the balcony at Terminal 3 at Heathrow, directly under one of the speakers as the roof is low. We put the tape machine in our bag with the microphone poking out of the top. We'd look for a flight that‘d arrived in the last 40 minutes from somewhere where you'd expect mental names, then write a letter saying “Could you go and pick up etc. etc. from flight, etc ". That way, it looked like it‘d been arranged in advance as the flight arrival details were written on the note. We also wore an ID-style badge and carried a mobile so that we looked like taxi drivers. We'd pretend to be unable to pronounce it and then hand the announcers the bit of paper with the name written on it. Long winded, but well worth it!"
