Picture a tiny object consisting of a speaker, a button-cell battery, and an adhesive side. Every now and then it makes a noise like a cell phone ringtone.
Simply buy a bag of 100 of these and stick them under seats in the movies, on buses, in bridge clubs: anywhere you'd like to see some excitement.
