Frank Neal Garrett[12] (October 14, 1936 – July 3, 2011[13][14][15][16]), more commonly known as Duncan, was the owner of the pole-barn building firm Duncan Construction[17][18] and the most famous soundboard prank call victim of all time.[19][20][21][22][23][24] Duncan lived and ran his business in Stilwell, Oklahoma, and later the nearby town of Tahlequah[4], in the United States. He was known for his fiery temper and use of copious amounts of profanity in response to prank calls, and also for his quick-witted responses and defiance in the face of any legal threats made against him.

Something of a cult following has developed around him and prior to his passing, a tradition developed of annual calls on major holidays being made to express holiday greetings, much to his anger.[25][26][27][28][29] More devoted fans have gone so far as to concoct a fake religion called Duncanism dedicated solely to Frank Garrett.[30][31] The soundboard of Jesus Lady has been altered via splicing to promote the worship of Frank Garrett, and has evangelized several households.[32][33]

On July 3, 2011, Frank Garrett was pronounced dead in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, from natural causes.[34] Visitation was held from 5-8 p.m on Thursday, July 7 at Roberts/Reed-Culver Funeral Home, while his graveside service was performed at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, July 8 at the Stilwell City Cemetery.[35][36]

Prank History

See also: Quotes of Duncan

Early era

Duncan was originally called by the well known prankster w3baholic using a Deacon Frost soundboard in late 2007. w3baholic was calling random liquor stores and dialed a number listed as Backstreet Liquor in Stilwell, Oklahoma; to his surprise, however, the call was answered by a somewhat groggy-sounding Frank Garrett at Duncan Construction. The directory used was evidently not up to date, but it is known that the liquor business did once belong to Frank and was sold to the present owner in 2003.

Frank's quick and angry reaction to the soundboard, despite the fact that relatively unoffensive quotes were used, provoked immediate interest in the Soundboard Prank Call community, who initially named him the "Drunk Guy," mistakenly thinking that he was intoxicated during the call. Eventually, however, he became known by the more familiar "Duncan" moniker, due to the mistaken belief that this was his real name. According to a short obituary recently posted on the site Wikitopic, the name "Duncan Construction" actually came from the former partner Frank founded the business with in 1979, Charles Duncan.[37]

Right from the start, Frank was a YouTube sensation, quickly gaining a cult following among prank call fans, even though relatively few calls were made to him during the earliest time. It was also during this time that Xaozzz created the first generation Duncan soundboard (initially known as the "Drunk Guy Soundboard"), which consisted of only a few (10 or less) lines, such as "Hello." "Duncan Construction." "You stupid cocksucker." "Fuck you." "Do what?" "This is a business phone, get off of it!" and the ever-popular, "Well I don't give a shit." among others. The first place to be called with it was A&S Roofing in Muncie, Indiana, which lead to the discovery of another extremely popular prank call victim, Tom the Pissed Off Roofer. Duncan himself was also called with it several times, which garnered a few new lines from him and allowed the board to be gradually expanded. Ironically, a call from a soundboard of Tom during this time would eventually reveal Duncan's real name, Frank Garrett, to the world.

Expansion of calling

At first, his number was known only to a select few prank callers, such as w3baholic, Xaozzz, PranksAndThat and SoCalCoaster and only a few calls to him were made every couple of weeks, to keep things from going too far. Unfortunately, this was soon to change after the number for Duncan Construction was found by unknown third parties (possibly from Frank's own company website) and widely posted on YouTube and other public places for all to see, this has also unfortunately happened recently with the Bail Bondsman. This quickly lead to Frank being called by hundreds (if not thousands) of copycat pranksters from every corner of the world on almost a daily basis; a situation which sadly continued right up until the time of his death. Duncan would receive calls from pranksters based across the United States, Western Europe, and Canada, while other pranksters were based as far away as Croatia[38] and Kuwait.[39]

Due to the unprecedentedly high frequency with which he was called (a frequency which will likely never be matched due to the community becoming very wary about releasing names and numbers after seeing what happened to him), Frank was subjected to likely the widest variety of different soundboards of any victim. Nearly every major soundboard has been recorded calling him, however, there are several notable soundboards that are not known to have ever been used to call him. Some of these include Al Pacino, Dr. Phil, Jack Black, Mr. T, Mr. Rogers, Peter Griffin, Hank Hill, Harlem Barber, and Drunk Guy.

2008 Duncan Scare

Main article: 2008 Duncan Scare

Starting in early 2008, pranksters began using the soundboard of Frank to harass various residents and businesses in his own hometown of Stilwell, Oklahoma. This lead to the discovery of such noteworthy victims as Charles at A to Z Pawn and Colleen from the Stilwell Flower Shop.

When the Stilwell Public Library was called, however, it resulted in near disaster for those that had been calling him. Stilwell is a small town of only 3,000 or so people, and the library staff, especially a librarian named "Karen", knew who Frank was and recognized the name Duncan Construction as a local company. Thinking that it was the real Frank Garrett harassing them, possibly while drunk, they called the Stilwell police, who then paid a visit to Duncan Construction and talked to Frank himself about it. At the same time, the library staff were also tipped-off by an unknown informant about about the YouTube videos of the prank calls that had been made to them. Police reports were filed by both Frank and the library staff and YouTube was contacted about the matter, a fact which came to light after yet another Duncan prank call was made to Karen at the library. Fearing what seemed like a real threat of legal repercussions, the soundboard prank call community quickly removed all Duncan-related media, prank calls, and soundboards from YouTube and websites such as Realm of Darkness. Some pranksters even went as far as deleting the original audio and video files from their home computers, fearing they would be seized by the authorities. This resulted in a number of prank calls and parody videos being seemingly lost forever, although many have since been restored.

Later era

General Nature of Calls

When called on his business phone, Frank would usually answer with a casual, even pleasant, "Duncan Construction." When called on his cell phone, he would answer with either "Hello," or "This is Frank." If he suspected from the beginning that it was a prank call, he would usually say nothing and let the caller begin the conversation, or, less frequently, pick up the phone and immediately start cussing out the caller. It is unknown how many legitimate callers Frank cussed out believing they were pranksters, but there were probably at least a few - the negative implications of which, socially and for his business, would have been an undoubted downside of the prank calling.

It is believed by many pranksters that while Frank was initially angry over the near-constant bombardment of calls, he eventually came to accept them and even secretly enjoyed having someone to cuss at, being truly angry only when he was very busy.

Recent

Though he was often called by real people as well as soundboards, Frank was aware of the nature of soundboard prank calls from early on, particularly after being called with his own soundboard multiple times and realising others were being called with it too after the 2008 Stilwell incidents.

Frank also eventually became aware of the calls made to him on YouTube, and more familiar with the many soundboards available featuring his recorded voice. He apparently found out after the "A Nightmare On Burton Street" series of pranks (which did not use his voice, but used his name multiple times) attracted the attention of federal investigators. His name was mentioned and even breifly discussed in the Fox News coverage of the incident, and several newspaper articles mentioned that Frank lives in Oklahoma and implied that the FBI had spoken to him about the calls, even though they did not consider him a suspect. It is possible he had a brief idea of the nature of the calls he was recieving before this, however, claiming he had the prank callers "figured out" in a relatively early call made to him - though he may just have been talking about soundboards and not the call recordings.

The exact depth of Frank's knowledge of the prank call community remains hazy, as his responses seemed to indicate some inconsistencies. For example, sometimes Frank would reference other victims, soundboards, callers and events, particularly those associated with "A Nightmare on Burton Street." Other times, he would seem to indicate that he believed that just one person (usually Charles) was responsible for the calls, and believed that certain soundboards were actual people (particularly Homer and Billye Scott), though this may have been his way of "playing along."

Towards the end of the saga, Frank began to recognize certain voices and soundboards, mostly ones that he was called with most frequently, as evidenced by the fact that he would sometimes say something related to them. Notable among these are:

  • Rick, to whom he would often call "The Sugar Creek Motherfucker" or mention AR-15s
  • The Jesus Lady, two whom he would sometimes say something religious even before she began her own religious lines, and usually called her a whore, something he was not known to call any other soundboard with frequency
  • Billye Scott, who he recognized as a Stilwell resident and was usually more irritated with than any other soundboard
  • Charles, who he knew very, very well by the end of his life
  • Nismo, who he always called "Gravel Voice," or some variation thereof, even the one time he was called with a soundboard of Nismo
  • While it is not clear whether or not Frank recognized his own voice, he definitely recognized his own quotes, as, after some of the more notable ones, he would frequently respond with, "That's my line!" or some variation thereof

2011 Hospitalization

Although few details are presently available, there were significant indications that Frank had possibly fallen into poor health.

In 2009, when asked about the soundboard prank call incidents of 2008 in an email, an employee of the Stillwell Library mentioned that they still recieved prank calls and Frank, who by this stage was well aware of what had happened, was recieving a high volume of calls, which "were not helping his health." It is difficult to tell how accurate or reliable this information may have been. In early February 2011, an uploader named RobbersQuest, uploaded a series of calls which revealed that Frank had been admitted to the hospital for unknown reasons. When he answered his cellphone, the busy sounds of the hospital could be heard in the background and Frank grumpily responded to the calls with, "Hey, you ignorant son of a bitch, I'm laid-up here in the hospital, so get off my back, will ya?"

While in a previous call made in early November 2010, he responded to a question by the Prayer Lady by stating that he was a "sick man" and then claimed to have terminal cancer, asking in a snide tone if she could cure it. It is unknown whether Frank was serious and this was the reason for the hospital stay, or if he merely realized that he was talking to a soundboard and decided to play along.

He was also heard to cough and clear his throat multiple times in many of the most recent calls, which he never used to do.

In late March 2011, the uploader of the call, RobbersQuest, rung Frank up with a Homer and Billye Scott soundboard. When Billye asked if he was sick, Frank claimed he wasn't, suggesting that he got over whatever had hospitalised him.

Status

Depiction

Since the earliest calls to Duncan were posted on Youtube, he has usually represented with a picture of Prince Charles looking rather haggard and exhausted, sometimes with a barn photo shopped in the background. Various edits of this picture have been made, usually to make him look angrier. Since these early calls, no other person has been used to represent Duncan, although several different pictures of Prince Charles have been frequently used or modified. Photoshopped pictures of Duncan have become popular in their own right.

Early on, Xaozzz chose a photograph of Prince Charles of England looking rather haggard and exhausted to represent Frank in his videos, reasoning that this particular photograph made him look like "a drunk hobo" (at this time it was still erroneously believed that Frank's hostility was due to intoxication). Ironically, Xaozzz recently stated that when he chose the picture, he originally did not realize that it was of Prince Charles. Photoshopped versions of the picture, with the facial expression changed to a reddened, angry look and a different background (usually a barnyard or a rundown building) added began to appear soon after. Since these early calls, no other person has ever been used to represent Frank. Whilst variations on the same initial image remain the most popular, countless other pictures of Prince Charles have been used in prank call videos.

In 2009, a user on the Realm Of Darkness forums claiming to live in Stilwell, paybacksrhell, promised real life photographs of Duncan. At first, pictures of various Stilwell locations associated in some way with prank calls, such as A to Z Pawn, Stilwell Library, Duncan Construction, and a building claimed to be Duncan's home were posted. These were met with skepticism as they were similar to those already available on Google Street View. Soon, pictures of a man driving a utility truck waiting at traffic lights were taken and it was claimed they were of Duncan himself. These were not widely circulated, however, and shortly after this, several much clearer photos of Duncan walking into a diner were taken. A picture claiming to be Duncan's senior school picture, from Stilwell High School Class of 1954, was also released. Whilst it is still not known with ultimate certainty, the images are now widely regarded as real despite initial doubts. They did not, however, replace the image of Prince Charles as the popular depiction of Duncan, and were controversial as some felt they were far too great an intrusion of his privacy.

Sometime after this, Frank apparently moved from Stilwell to a house located at
TheRealFrankGarrett
A real picture taken of Frank
13265 N 536 Rd. in the nearby town of Tahlequah, 25 miles away.[4] It is likely that this was in response to the posting of pictures of his previous home in Stilwell, out of fear that the ongoing harassment would move beyond prank calls.

Cult following

The interest over these pictures and the efforts taken to obtain them just went to prove the extent to which a cult status had developed around Duncan. Some pranksters jokingly refer to him as "Lord Frank Garrett," and have written a creed to a fictional religion "Duncanism." Various edits to Wikipedia have been made attempting to add rerefernces to Duncan in the Stilwell article, though these are inevitably changed back. The Merchantcircle.com page for Duncan Construction, probably created by a prankster, has attracted interest and hundreds of fake reviews by pranksters, sometimes claiming to be genuine customers, other prank call victims or Duncan himself. Some pranksters have also asked questions about Duncan, or pretended to be him, on the Stilwell Topix forums.

For Christmas in 2009, the prankster 88_nismo sent Duncan some McDonalds voichers as a gift along with a card signed with pictures from several pranksters. There have been jokes about buying him a dozer for Christmas, which is a reference to a famous call where he denies having a dozer.

Along with the aforementioned photoshopped pictures, many parody videos and songs of prank call victims have appeared on YouTube, with Duncan being the most popular. Examples of this are the Duncan the Tank Engine parody, and the festive 12 Days of Christmas with Prank Call Victims video.

Controversy

There has been much controversy related to prank calls involving Frank. Though there was little sentiment other than humour when Frank was first called, many pranksters and listeners grew to genuinely like him and his aforementioned cult following built up very quickly. What initially may have seemed to be little more than a foul mouthed, bad tempered old man soon turned out to be a witty, defiant character who was widely seen as a decent guy underneath it all and was related to by many. A handful of pranksters remained adamant that Frank was unpleasant and deserved the calls purely as punishment, but they soon became a significant minority (they often sited slurs from sources such as the Stilwell Topix forum against Frank or his family as evidence, but these are widely seen as very unreliable and based on backward, historic family grudges). The vast majority had a very good oppinion of Frank and the calls were popular more for their humourous content than for any sort of vindictive purpose.

As he became the most famous prank call victim, he received a high volume of calls from all round the world - hundreds of which were recorded and posted but many more of which were probably not. Many of his fans felt that the volume of calls needed to significantly reduce or stop altogether as they may have been significantly affecting his life and business.

The prankster XxVideoPersonxX, who made many of the original calls to Duncan, once famously called Frank to apologise for the prank calls, about a year after the first call was made to him. Recorded speaking to a polite caller for the first time, Frank was very reasonable and calm, thanking XxVideoPersonxX for the apology and requesting that the prank calls stop. He was somewhat surprised that Xaozzz did not know him in real life, leading to the much-quoted line, "then how did you select me... to be your goat?" XxVideoPersonxX posted this call in a video, stating that he would not call Frank anymore but would continue to use his soundboard. A vast majority of viewers agreed and the number calls made to Frank dropped significantly for several months.

Main article: Apology to Duncan

However, these were early days - his number soon became discovered by many other pranksters around the world and the number of calls to Frank began to increase again. Following this initial apology call, Frank did not accept any more apologies over the phone as presumably he remembered the first, after which the calls ultimately continued.

Another concern was the implications of calling people in his hometown of Stillwell with his soundboard. Many people recognised Frank and thought he was really calling them, which many felt was a step too far. It also seems likely that Frank might have started to wrongly assume that some legitimate calls were pranks, possibly having a negative effect both socially and for his business.

It is, however, believed by many pranksters that while Frank was initially angry over the near-constant bombardment of calls, he eventually came to accept them and even secretly enjoyed having someone to cuss at, being truly angry only when he was very busy. This is often evidenced by the fact that he did not change his personal phone number - whilst it would be impractical to change his business line, he could quite easily have changed his home and cell phone numbers and unlisted them from directories.

When Frank sadly passed away in July 2011, fresh controversy was ignited as some were concerned that the prank calls could have contributed to it. (See Controversy following death)

Death

Frank sadly passed away in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, on July 3, 2011, at the age of 74 years, 8 months, 19 days. Although official obituaries have not listed a cause of death other than "natural causes", rumor has it that people who knew him personally are claiming that he died of a stroke. It is presently unknown whether this is actually the case or not.

He is survived by two sisters, a brother, three children, and six grandchildren.[40]

Reactions

Domestic reaction

Frank was well known locally and no doubt, prank calls asside, his death would have affected a large number of people.

  • Charles of A to Z Pawn: "[no comment]"[41]
  • Eva of the Stilwell Public Library: "I did hear [about his passing]...I saw his obituary in the newspaper...I didn't know him."[42]
  • Holly of Deb's Hair Depot: "I didn't hear [the news of his passing]...I haven't heard anything about it...I'll be sure and tell the other ladies."[43]
  • Female employee of Stilwell Flowers: "...they buried Frank Garrett last week. There were several orders of flowers, but I didn't get to go to the service, and I just don't know how many people was [sic] there, but [his passing] was very sad. I did know Frank...Frank was always nice to me."[44]

An alleged grandson of Frank Garrett, contacted on Facebook, acknowledged Frank's death as well as his detestation for him, a view he claims is unanimous amongst Garrett's surviving relatives.[45][46]
He alleged:

"...he was as bad as they come. you’ve heard all the prank calls, that is exaaclty [sic] how he’d treat us. he has stolen money from almost everon [sic] in my family including his grand children. [sic] and everthing [sic] he did in life was to make life misbrible [sic] for the people around him, i don’t want to get into it, people hate him because he goes out of his way to be a complete asshole to everyone..."

The reliability of this account has been called into question, however. Those who have read through the [Stilwell Topix Forums] have noticed many similar, rambling accusations against Frank and the Garrett family in general, which often seem to be based more on some sort of historic feud between local families than on any reasonable complaints.

Soundboard community reaction

The passing of Frank Garrett was met with widespread grief and despair his many admirers - pranksters, avid listeners and even people who had little knowledge of soundboard prank calling. Individual and unique memorial videos popped up in the dozens.[47][48][49][50][51][52][53][54][55][56] [57][58][59][60][61][62][63][64][65][66][67][68][69][70] As of July 15, his memorial guestbook is comprised of over ten pages of written condolences.[71] Garrett has received condolences from individuals inside and outside of Stilwell, Oklahoma and even the United States (Alaska, California, Connecticut, D.C., Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Hampshire, New York, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin), with some originating from the Netherlands, Northern Ireland, England, Germany, New Zealand, across Canada, Taiwan, the United Arab Emirates, Ireland, Portugal, Sweden, and Australia.[72]

One memorial page that appeared on the internet appeared to feature a brand new and very clear picture of Frank, smiling and standing in front of a construction vehicle of some kind. This was later found to be a fake page set up by a prankster, as the image was discovered to have been taken from another website and was in fact a picture of a Swedish farmer. As part of the joke, the vehicle in the background may have been a bulldozer and an ironic reference to the numerous references to calls in which Frank denies having or wanting a bulldozer. It was an extremely convinving imitation, however, as the Swedish farmer in the picture looked very much like a younger version of Frank, based on the photographs of taken by paybacksrhell.

Others

Later, however, Chris supposedly wrote the following on Frank Garrett's obituary guestbook:[74]

"Rest in Peace, Mr Garrett.

Rest safe in the knowledge that what goes around comes around.

Deepest respect,

C. Perron General Manager DatBoys Data Recovery and WhipsBook.com"

Controversy following death

Something of a debate has arisen in the prank call community as to whether pranksters should feel any responsibility for Frank's sudden demise. The general consensus is that he was called far too much and should have been left alone or called very rarely, with some people feeling that his death may have been hastened by the stress of the near-constant harassment he received. The majority view is that if Frank Garrett was still irritated by the prank calls as he was shortly after their inception, he would have changed his personal phone number. Despite this, most remain opposed the incessant nature of the pranking that took place.

Personal Life

Family Background

Frank's family, the Garretts, seem to be very established locally, and Frank himself was widely known to the residents of his hometown, Stilwell.

There seems to be some sort of historical family feud running between the Garretts and other local historic families, and it is often brought up on the Stilwell Topix Forums. There is a thread dedicated to the Means/Garrett trial, which took place several decades ago and apparently involved a murder. Frank was unconnected to this trial, but it involved some of his relatives. A lot of the negative testaments posted on there seem to be largely grudge based and it is difficult to tell what actually happened.

Frank may have owned a dog, which could be heard barking in the background of some of the calls made to him. The dog was nicknamed Retardo by pranksters as, although Frank was referring to the caller and not the dog, his exclamation "Get 'em, Retardo!" made it sound like that was in fact the dog's name. Frank later stated in a call that he did not have a dog, so Retardo may in fact have belonged to a friend, relative or work colleague.

Earlier Life

Frank was married to a lawyer named Nancy. Mentally sharp, he assisted her with her work in the legal business. It was once thought that Duncan Construction may have been named after her maiden name, Duncan, though this was later proven to be false.[75]. The couple are thought to have had three children - two daughters and a son. At some point their relationship ended, and Nancy moved to a house which Frank built for her.

The young Frank was apparently quite outgoing, and frequented his local bar. He was alledgedly involved in a few brawls and once, whilst intoxicated, stood up on (or possibly manned) the bar wearing nothing but a pair of dungarees.[76] There was an alledged 'pool table incident' which might be a reference to this (or might be seperate).[77] Eventually, Frank became sober and until the time of his death, did not drink alcohol at all.

At some point Frank is known to have run a second business next door to Duncan Construction called Backstreet Liquor, which he sold to the current owners in 2003. Until at least as late as 2007, the number still appeared in outdated directories as being the same as Duncan Construction.

There is evidence that Frank may have been a recovering alcoholic - his past alcohol-related activities, connection with Backstreet Liquor and later abstention from alcohol do seem to point to this.

The company ran and owned right up to his death, Duncan Construction, had been building Post-Frame Buildings since 1979. Frank founded the company with his business partner at the time, Charles Duncan.[78] Right up to his death, Frank was still involved with the manual labor side of the business, as evidenced in some of the calls to him. The reasons for this are not known but were presumably financial or because he enjoyed his work.

His work covered a large area spanning several states. Most of his work came from Kansas and Missouri as opposed to his home state of Oklahoma.[79] He did not advertise as far south as Texas, as noted in a call, but obviously advertised across several states and traveled long distances to projects. His company evidently had a good reputation, offering upon serious inquiry, names of previous clients to serve as testimonial to their work. In one call, Frank mentioned that he had plenty enough money, so presumably Duncan Construction and his other business ventures over the years were successful financially as well.

According to his obituary,[80] Frank had a bachelor's degree in psychology and, following his graduation from Stilwell High School, studied at Northeastern State University. He was an avid coon hunter and a member of the United Kennel Club. He served in the United States Air Force (given his birth year, likely in the Korean War). He also mentioned in a voice call from DozerConstruction that he used to be a boxer, a sport he may have taken up during his military service.

Religious Views

Frank became drawn into an inevitable religious chat with several soundboards (Jesus Lady, Jesus Guy, Bible Man, Prayer Lady, Epic Crazy Lady, the Spirit of Truth, etc.), whereupon he stated that he didn't "know Jesus," "didn't want to know him," and that he believed "in [his] own destiny" and "in himself."[81] In one of the above calls, he also stated that faith in Jesus didn't "keep stupid sons of bitches like you off the phone." This has led some to believe that he was not a religious believer or had lost faith - however, Frank's obituary stated that he was an active member of First Christian Church in Stilwell. Based on this, it is likely that Frank was a Christian, but did simply not have a high opinion of the more cult-like, obsessive and fundamentalist forms of Christianity practiced by soundboard victims such as the Jesus Lady, Jesus Guy and Epic Crazy Lady.

Notes

  1. While Frank Garrett's obituary claims he has a daughter, Frank himself remarked in October 2010 that "he didn't have a wife or any daughters." Based on the remarks attributed to Frank's supposed grandson, it's possible a falling-out may have occurred at some point in the past and this was reason for Frank's denial. It's also possible that Frank feared (and rightly so) that confirming he had a daughter would only lead to her being targeted by prank callers too. However, both of these theories are only speculation at this point and with Frank's passing, the truth may never be known for sure.
