People Create Illusion That They Are Anywhere They Want During Phone Calls with Scenes for Whooptones

San Francisco, CA—February 20, 2007—Spoonjack, LLC, today announced Scenes for Whooptones, the innovative new service that lets users inject any sound into their conversations on any phone. Scenes are looping background sounds that let users create the illusion that they are virtually anywhere they want to be. From the comfort of their room, car or kitchen, now they can sound like they are,
- at the airport about to board a flight,
- stuck on a busy highway with a flat,
- at the office, busier than ever, or
- schmoozing with friends at a party.
Users can use Scenes to back-up their story, set the mood, or simply amuse friends.

"Judging by preliminary feedback from our users, Scenes are useful and a lot of fun," said Tom A. Scharfeld, President and Founder of Spoonjack, LLC. "We've heard of users doing everything from masking unexpected and inappropriate sounds from their home-office with sounds of a bustling office, to fooling friends into thinking they're at the game with sounds of a cheering crowd. It's remarkable how a little innocent ambiance can evoke powerful reactions from others -- whether it's making them believe a story, or changing their mind!"
