There are a good number of enjoyable easter eggs hidden in The Last of Us, but this one takes the grand prize. At one point in the game, Joel will come across a couple of phone numbers for "pest control." But they're not actually numbers for pest control hotlines… they're phone sex hotlines.
But I called the first one anyway. 1-800-555-2545.
"Welcome to 800-666-1234," moaned a woman's voice. "Mmmmmm. We're spread, wet and ready for you right now. Come on baby, let's play!"
DANG. OK, then! I called the second number. 1-800-555-6784.
"Welcome to America's hottest talk line!" said a bubbly, chipper female voice. "Ladies, to talk to interesting and exciting guys free, press one now! Guys, hot ladies are waiting to talk to you…"
"Pest control" indeed!
I can't say whether or not those numbers were chosen on purpose, and there's always the possibility they were photoshopped into the image, though they look real -- we haven't found them for ourselves. But that is a hell of an easter egg.
And hey, you don't have to take my word for it; call the numbers up top if you like! You know, just for research.
