"Gordon Freeman" Calls Coast To Coast AM
« on: May 02, 2009, 06:24:10 PM »
Someone posing as the main character from the Half-Life series pranked George Noory, host of Coast to Coast AM.  It's pretty funny if you're familiar with the game.  Whoever did it deserves a best actor nomination at the G4 awards, because he plays it totally straight and sincere, and obviously George Noory had no idea the guy was putting him on.  Though, admittedly, there's probably been a lot of stuff that sounds less plausible on that show.

Did George actually know who Gordon Freeman was?  I'll listen to Coast to Coast every HUGE once in a while usually no longer than a few minutes and in the little I've heard he seems to know a lot of stuff you wouldn't think he'd know.

Any chance there's an audio clip somewhere?  I didn't see anything on youtube.  Was it last night's show?

That was hilarious man.  There was not one giggle on either side, totally serious, and I kinda doubt George knew who Gordon Freeman was although clearly he figured out it was a hoax early on.  By the time he mentioned "portal technology" it was a definite.

Technically weren't they working on teleportation?  Portal technology is the newer game and Gordon isn't even in it and it takes place at the "competing company".  Besides that he got everything right.

Sweet. When is someone going to call in claiming to work on GLaDOS?

I think they were working on portals in the first game, but the machine backfired and released all the creatures into our dimension.  I might be mistaken though.

And I don't listen to George Noory that much to know when he's taking the piss out of a caller, but it doesn't sound to me like he thinks this person is putting him on.

I don't think Noory believes 90% of the people on his show. Although he always lets them tell their stories without being judgmental. Rather than really confront anyone, he seems more interested in simply letting them talk... no matter how ridiculous it may be. It's made for a pretty fun show all these years.
