Press * if you have lost your mind

So while sitting on hold last night I heard something completely new. “To make you time on hold more enjoyable press one for pop. Press two for urban. Press three for R&B. Press four for Indie. Press five for smooth jazz. Press six if classical is more your style.” Can I press seven to just find out why all of a sudden my voice mail is not working?

Wow. I don't know whether to be appalled or applauding. I spend quite a bit of work time on hold with one of two large organizations, both of which have but one song on their hold pattern. I thought the slick saxophone jazz of organization A was pretty excruciating, until I encountered the ultralite smooooth jazz of organization B. Could I press "7" for a faint buzzing?
