PRESSED ON LIMITED WHITE & PURPLE COLORED VINYL WITH NUMBERED OBI STRIP
Select Records is proud to present the 30th anniversary edition of this 1993 comedy classic by
The Jerky Boys, on deluxe colored vinyl with a limited OBI strip.
Hailing from Queens, New York, childhood friends Johnny Brennan and Kamal Ahmed collaborat-
ed on a series of prank telephone calls that eventually circulated in classic grassroots fashion
(before being "viral" was a thing), travelling from teenager to teenager via cassette dub after cas-
sette dub. The duo's work eventually earned legendary status among those lucky enough to get
their hands on it.
When the compilation of calls was finally officially released via Select Records, who were mostly
known for their hip-hop acts ranging from Kid n Play to AMG, it reached #1 on Billboard's Heat-
seekers list by amazingly bumping Radiohead's Pablo Honey, which coincidentally took its title
from a Jerky Boys sketch, out of the top spot.
What followed was a few more platinum albums, a hilarious movie, and a legion of lifetime fans
that can repeat these prank calls verbatim, even 30 years later. The Jerky Boys created a true
movement, and inspired an entire generation of improvisational prank-style comedians.
Re-live the hilarity now with the deluxe vinyl pressing!
