Listen: Here's What Happens If You Call Up Ricky Gervais' Character From Muppets Most Wanted

There's a clear shot of Dominic Badguy's business card in the Muppets Most Wanted trailer, and on that card are a number and a website address.

The number… leads nowhere. But the website… has a different number on it, and that one works.

I guess the number on the card itself may activate closer to the film's release? Maybe. Maybe not. Might just be a wrinkle or a glitch in this marketing campaign.

Anyway, I called the number that does work, and this is what I heard.

Note that he gives a different website URL in this recorded message as is given on the card, but there's a redirect in place so it's not much to worry about.

In any case, you end up on the same website and it's like the early stages of some kind of talent competition…? I'll have to apply, as soon as I can work out what my talent is.

So… was that actually Ricky Gervais' voice, do you reckon? My tolerance for impersonation wonkiness was thrown out of joint by the film's trailer. Now I've heard Constantine mangling Kermitisms like that, I'm not sure who sounds like who any more.
