So, Duh! Pop Quiz… Guess That 900 Number Edition

Can you call me?


For this edition of the So, Duh! Pop Quiz, I thought I’d go with a nostalgic walk down memory lane in the style of Pop Culture Perfect Storms.  

In the days of yore – “pre-TripleDoubleU” – there were only so many ways to get in touch with celebrities.  Actually, aside from fan letters and magazines, there was only one truly sorta interactive way to reach them… 900 phone numbers.  

This is a test of your memory or pure guessing skills.  The corresponding answers in the form of commercials follow after the jump.  Good luck!
