The God Hotline: 776-2323

Wednesday, May 28th, 2003 · 4 Comments

After seeing Bruce Almighty this weekend, which was number one at the box office, people across the country are trying to call God. Apparently, there is a scene in the movie in which God pages Jim Carey and the number “776-2323” is displayed on his pager. Universal says the number was chosen since it doesn’t exist in Buffalo, NY, where the movie was set.

Yet unlike the standard 555 prefix used in just about every other movie in existence, this 776 number does exist in cities across America. In Sanford, N.C. the number belongs to Turner’s Chapel Church, where the pastor is actually named Bruce. In Longmont, CO the number belongs to the Radio Colorado Network (area code 303).

Who’s God in your city? Give Him a call. Or do a Google search for the area code plus 776-2323, like this.

    i haven’t seen the movie yet but my cell number is literally just one digit off, but i’ve gotten so many phone calls. so, to answer your question. in southern california, maggie st.thomas is GOD!

    Dear everyone of the Human League,

    I am GOD. If you need anything, email me where your wish will be granted.

    I currently never use the internet, but when a secret sacred soul told me that there was a film which disturbed them.

    I don’t appreciate it when people pretend to be GOD!

    Remember, what you wish for, will come true.

    Don’t believe me? Then you will never know.

    – God

    I just watched Bruce Almighty on DVD and although he says 776-2323 as he dials the number, they must’ve edited it so that on his pager it now reads 555-0134. Just though you’d be interested.
