Dad Changes Phone Number After Sons’ Birthday Billboard Yields Too Many Calls & Texts

    • Chris Ferry has been forced to change his phone number after his old phone got inundated with calls and texts wishing him a happy 62nd birthday.
    • This happened after his sons rented a billboard wishing Ferry a happy birthday, and printed his phone number on it.
    • “We thought it was going to be a local joke,” said one of his sons. “When we put it on social media, that’s when it really started going crazy.”
  • Chris Ferry doesn’t turn 62 until Saturday, but he’s already gotten more than 15,000 texts and calls congratulating him on the milestone–thanks to a surprise birthday billboard his sons rented in New Jersey, where Ferry lives, that contained his phone number. Now, The Sun-Sentinel reports that Ferry’s gotten so inundated with birthday calls that he’s been forced to change his number, leaving a voice mail on the old line which says, “Thank you for calling to wish me a happy birthday. I really very much appreciate it.” “We thought it was going to be a local joke,” one of Ferry’s sons told a Florida radio station. “I guess when we put it on social media, that’s when it really started going crazy.”
