A YouTuber prank calls several people using sound clips from the Vault Tec Rep from Fallout 4 in an effort to sell vault access to unsuspecting people over the phone.
Even before the bombs dropped in Fallout 4, it must have been pretty difficult for a Vault-Tec representative to make a living. They had to go door-to-door checking off details for the company, and as the Sole Survivor witnesses in the beginning of Fallout 4, they don’t even get access to the vault themselves when it really matters.
While Bethesda left a great easter egg in the game by placing a real Vault-Tec number on the player’s fridge, one YouTuber named ICEnJAM decided to take things to the next level. Instead of going door-to-door to register future vault dwellers, he began cold calling people and using a voice box of the Vault-Tec Representative to make some sales pitches. While most people were baffled to be getting an offer for a fallout shelter, one guy figured he may as well stay on the line.
The results are as follows:
The video really steps into gear when Swanson, the character from the Covenant who gives the player a personality test, takes over the call. The prankee then goes along with the test, even going so far as to casually answer one question with an affirmation that the right answer would be to kill one’s own Grandmother. When being told he was absolutely prepared for the future, the prankee closed the call with a delightfully casual ‘yep’.
While Vault 111 ended up as an unpleasant place, we wouldn’t have imagined that the Vault-Tec rep responsible for getting people there would have had enough dialogue lines to actual fool some people into fielding his calls. Granted, the game features some 111,000 lines of dialogue, so this probably isn’t the last Fallout 4 prank call video gamers will end up seeing in the near future.
Prank calls aside, Bethesda has been hard at work keeping the ghoulish Vault-Tec Representative busy, and is releasing a patch this week that should make life in the commonwealth much easier.
For anyone who didn’t know, the Vault-Tec Rep can be found in the upper floor of the Hotel Rexford in Goodneighbor, and can be a unique vendor for a player’s settlement. While the radiation has certainly gotten to the man himself, his Vault-Tec suit remains dashingly clean after two centuries of wear and tear – maybe they should have just made the vaults out of those.
Fallout 4 is currently out for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
