LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Clay Aiken’s voicemail message could soon be on answering machines everywhere. That is if Lisa Lampanelli doesn’t beat him to it. Clay Aiken and Lisa Lampanelli heat up a series of hilarious new voicemail message greetings unveiled by NBC to news this month. They are released in conjunction with the Peacock’s current season of Celebrity Apprentice. But if you are expecting a standard, normal message from Aiken or Lampanelli, you might be surprised when you call. Among the possible messages available to NBC viewers are warnings of a robbery and jokes about death.
“Hel-loo this Lisa Lampanelli from the Celebrity Apprentice” says an initially friendly Lampanelli in her message unveiled to news. But that soon changes. Lisa continues “The person you are calling is not here right now. So please leave a message, or die!”
Another greeting is bit more problematic. “I don’t know who you got me …Uhura must have transferred you to me?” questions the recently eliminated George Takai. “You have reached the most beautiful person in the world” says Aubrey O’Day.
Aiken tells fans “Hi I’m Clay Aiken and you have reached my friend .. who is out with me trying to sell … cupcakes .. on Celebrity Apprentice.”
NBC has yet to comment to news about the clearance process for each greeting. But fans might be afraid to use the one offered by Arsenio Hall. Arsenio warns “I know who you called. But he not here…. but if your friend comes home, me and nine of my friends will have robbed his house.”
