December 17 – Answer the Phone Like Buddy the Elf Day

Posted on December 17, 2013

Once upon a time, there was a Will Ferrell movie called Elf.

The main character of the movie, Buddy the Elf, isn't really an elf—it turns out he's a human. The movie follows his adventures as he leaves the North Pole and travels to New York City to find his father. The movie was a hit, so much so that there is a Buddy the Elf page on Facebook, books, costumes, T-shirts (like the one pictured below), other products, and of course this holiday!

To celebrate the day, all you have to do is answer the telephone at least once the way Buddy did in the movie: “Buddy the Elf. What's your favorite color?”

Do you think the caller will recognize the movie reference, and play along, or will the called just be confused?

Of course, you could also watch (or rewatch) the movie!

Want some wisdom from Buddy the Elf? Try these great quotes:

If you can sing alone, you can sing in front of other people. There's no difference.”

I just like to smile; smiling's my favorite.”

Watch out, the yellow ones don't stop” (as a yellow taxi runs into him as he crosses a street!).
