The below video was brought to my attention last week. In it, some young folks on a crabbing trip in Louisiana decide to call Onstar and ask for help finding a friend (or the directions to the crabbing location, I'm not quite sure).

The guy probably couldn't understand half the words being spoken to him and I still wonder if he figured he was being pranked.
