Gamestop Mario Galaxy call – prank version?

prankcall225.jpgAstute gamer and comic diarist, James Kochalka, hit us with the following story:

Yesterday we got the Gamestop phone call from the voice of Mario telling us that our Super Mario Galaxy pre-order would be available to pick up today.  That was great, very silly and entertaining.  We picked the game up this morning.  This evening, I just got another automated call from Gamestop.  This one said Super Mario Galaxy would be released tomorrow evening and that it was rated “mature” and we would have to be 17 years or older to pick it up.

My first thought was that it was some kind of automated prank… but there wasn’t really much to it.  A very plain and blah reminder, but with the facts all wrong.

Anyone else out there get a bizarre call from their local Gamestop?
