  • In the film, DiCaprio's character Dr. Mindy has a fictional service hotline that is supposed to help with questions about the comet.

  • As Twitter users have now found out, the phone number is in reality a number for phone sex.

A telephone number had already caused a stir in the Netflix series “Squid Game”. A South Korean experienced telephone terrorism because his number was shown on a business card by chance in the hit series. The actually fictional number really existed and belonged to a real person. Now the story is repeated in a similar form with the new Netflix film “Don't Look Up”.

Hotline for “Peace of Mind”

At least this time the funny coincidence has no negative consequences for anyone. The story began on December 31st when a curious Twitter user dialed the phone number that Leonardo DiCaprio's character Dr. Mindy advertises in the film. In “Don’t Look Up”, DiCaprio plays an astronomer who is supposed to use the hotline to explain all questions about the impending end of the world to the American people. For your own “peace of mind” you should dial comet number 1-800-532-4500.

The Twitter user was amazed when the number turned out to be a sex hotline in reality: “Am I the only one who called the hotline and came across a phone sex service?” The user asked the Internet community. And several others as well as the newspaper «New York Post» repeated the experiment and ended up in the same place.

Telephone sex as a means of combating climate change?

«Welcome to the hottest hotline in America, sexy women are waiting to speak to you », the caller greets a female voice on the supposed comet hotline. The “New York Post” then wanted to know whether the director of the film was of the opinion that “phone sex could be a means against the climate risk” – but the agents of the director Adam McKay have so far failed to answer.
