A Virginia man's phone will not stop ringing -- and it's all because of an interesting prank his friends have pulled on him.

They posted on Craigslist in Franklin County telling people they can win $50 if they call Blake Webb's cell phone and give their best Chewbacca howl.

Webb says more than 60 people have called him so far hoping to win cash.

Webb says he would have played along with the cash prize but his money is spoken for. As of last weekend, he has a new baby boy to care for.

He says he is being a good sport and keeping the ad up. Plus, he's planning an even better prank for his friends.
