What You'll Get
A message of love, an apology, or an informative warning is most easily received by the ear when delivered through varied pitches and frequencies. Today’s Groupon gets the message across with a customized, personalized singing telegram from Lip Service for $50. Send your love, send apologies, send an IOU to your landlord, or send calculated melodic gibberish to someone who really has it coming.
Ever since the poem "Happy Birthday to You" was set to music, the power of song has dramatically elevated the dullest of sentiments. Take part in the growing chorus and provide an unforgettable sentiment for a loved or liked one. Along with a song, your recipient gets a personalized card and either a costumed performer or a classily dressed serenader. Bring back Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, the Pink Gorilla, or the once-aggrandized Larry the Lobster, who have all received exceptional telegram training in heaven.
A game-changing gift for the holidays is hard to find. Craft an eloquent haiku or a rousing limerick and ask a Lip Service character to bring surprise and delight to someone’s doorstep. Send your message vibrating through the air and relish a job well sung.
Note: Telegrams delivered more than 30 miles from downtown San Diego may require a $10 traveling fee. You must schedule your telegram seven days in advance.
Lip Service customers are too busy thinking about their singing telegrams to write online reviews, but here are a few testimonials taken from its website:
- I've given my wife many different gifts over the years. But she thought this one was right at the top of the list!!
- I have to say a huge thank you to Lip Service and the Wonderful performance Kurt gave: he arrived promptly (early in the morning, no less) dressed as a spectacular Cat with [sic] the Hat, and performed the most creative custom song for my daughter's Kindergarten teacher. He was such a hit, truly rendering the teacher speechless. This is one memboery [sic] of her teaching years that she certainly won't ever forget!
The Right Telegram Singer for Your Singing Telegram
Lip Service gives you your choice of costumed character or celebrity impersonator to deliver your singing telegram. Here's a guide to which character is the most appropriate to deliver your message:
The Telegram: You must explain to your boss that your recent death was faked as a favor to a mysterious figure clad in Navy dress who saved your life some years ago.
The Singer: Elvis
The Telegram: You must inform your wife that your hot air balloon circumnavigation plan hit a snag when a flock of belligerent Dutch land surveyors stowed away in your tiny cabin. Your food supply exhausted, you have eaten both of your own legs.
The Singer: Old Hickory himself, Andrew Jackson
The Telegram: You have to explain to mum and dad that your engagement to Bethany is off because an experimental ray gave her the smarts of a computer and the proportional strength of a nickel-plated eagle. She's been kidnapped by government types and forged into an assassin.
The Singer: Bethany. Wait a second, Bethany?!
