A FEW WEEKS AGO, Sweden decided to celebrate the 250th anniversary of abolishing censorship by becoming the first country in the world with its own phone number. If you call, you’ll be connected with a “random Swede, somewhere in Sweden,” to whom you can ask all those things you always wanted to know about the country. Do you like the weather? What’s your opinion on ABBA? The above video shows what happened when the guys at Vox called.
You can also call Sweden! And don’t worry, those random Swedes answering the phone have downloaded an app and said they want to receive those phone calls. The number is +46771 793 336.
