Trivia

Much of the script and dialogue closely resembles the well known underground 'Binny Tapes', a series of crank call tapes made in the early 1980s. These tapes were made by 'Arney', an employee of a car dealership, Al White Motors in Manchester, Tennessee. See more »

If you know the Tube Bar and Allied Motors....
27 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

What a great film. Corndog Man is loosely based on two series of prank phone calls. The classic Red and the Tube Bar calls from the 1970s and a less well-known series of calls to Allied Motors made (I believe) in the late 80s. Comments about blue britches and snappy dressing are right out of the Allied Motors tapes as is Ace Barker's phone answering technique. Many stories circulated about the ultimate fate of Red from the Tube Bar in Jersey City, this film is a witty southern version of one of those tales.
