Body of content:
Who doesn’t love free samples?! Tyrone and his wife Rangaha (Buk Lau) dial in to Costco for this prank call to complain about getting slapped on the hand after pigging out on samples! As Tyrone, I told the employee I was let down by the recent Costco samples that weren’t enough to fill my 2,000 calorie needs for the day. To make it worse, one of the sample ladies SLAPPED Rangaha on the hand!!
The employee I spoke to was incredibly nice and acted sympathetic to Rangaha over the hand slapping and an uncomfortable “eye battle” with the sample lady. When the prank was revealed, she admitted all the Costco employees were getting a laugh out of the idea of a crazy couple coming in to get their days worth of food in samples! Should I do some more Costco pranks? What characters would you like to see call them up next time? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
