Call Freddy Toll Free! – Horror On The Small Screen

Ok, so I don’t know if you guys know this or not… But before the Internet, and the various social media profiles for some of America’s greatest fictious heroes and villains…  There was a bunch of gimmicks that were utilized in an effort to promote them…

One of the most recent that I have discovered is the fact that alot of production companies were promoting 900 numbers for everyone…  New Kids On The Block had one, where you get the opportunity to, ‘talk’ to your favorite heartthrob from the band…

Well the one that I thought was cool, is the one they did for, ‘Freddy Krueger’ at the height of the popularity of the original Nightmare On Elm Street series… I guess you might say that he finally, ‘Made it to prime time’ with that one! Either way, enjoy this commercial for the number you could call Freddy on!
