Blake Denman received one of those local Google spam calls while at PubCon and Joy Hawkins was with him. Greg Gifford recorded the call and shared the video with everyone. It is pretty funny.

Greg Gifford wrote at the Local Search Forums "For those of you who hadn't heard, Blake Denman got a call from one of those shady GMB verification places just before the sessions started on the last day of Pubcon. Joy was sitting next to him, and shenanigans ensued..."

Here is the video:

GMB prank call - Pubcon - wikimotive

The poor guy on the other end of the phone... It is like a mugger deciding to mug a group of karate teachers leaving work for the day and walking to their cars.
