The Last of Us' Hidden Phone-Sex Numbers ‘A Mistake,' Will Be RemovedSThe Last of Us has plenty of easter eggs; some of them goofy, some sly. And one of them, a little bit naughty.

Last week a tipster sent in a photo taken from the game depicting two phone numbers on a bulletin board in Pittsburgh, both of which he said were phone-sex hotlines. I called them up and, sure enough, they were real. Ha, right? Good one, Naughty Dog!

Well, not really, as it turns out. I asked the game's creative director Neil Druckmann about the phone numbers, and how they got into the game.

"We're now working to take it out," Druckmann said. "It was just an honest mistake."

Aw. Well, we'll always have Fahey's recording of the greeting for 1-800-555-2545:
