The phone number made famous by Tommy Tutone in the hit song 8675309/Jenny is on sale on eBay, and current owner Spencer Potter is looking forward to the end of an era.
He says, We had a great run. Its more than a number, its one of the last remnants of 80s culture other than the mullet, and I embraced it.
Potter warns the next owner of Jennys number to be prepared for lots of prank calls from people asking for Jenny or singing the song, and to break a few hearts.
He explains, People give out this number as a fake number so Id get guys calling asking for some girl. Id have to give them the bad news.
Potter is expecting more than $1 million for the digits, which will make him an instant gold digger magnet.
He jokes, Its a good thing I broke up with my girlfriend.
