This is pure genius. BT recently hired Tom Baker is record every word in a dictionary and lots of bits of words and sounds, enabling people to send messages of their own choosing by phone, using Tom Baker's voice. Unsurprisingly, it didn't take long for this to get corrupted and mis-used. Now there's a website - http://tombakersays.co.uk/ - where you can hear bizarre messages people have forced Tom Baker's voice to speak. My favourite has to be having the former Doctor Who actor speaking the lyrics of Buggles's early 1980s single, Video Killed The Radio Star - class in a glass.
