You might want to think twice about using your cell phone in public, especially if you’re in the airport.

Comedian Greg Benson, decided to take matters in hand to strike back against people who talk loudly on their cell phones in public.

Benson “crash calls” the person where he’ll sit down next to the person and respond to their conversation on his call phone while his wife, Kim Evey, secretly films the encounter for their production company, Mediocre Films.

Benson has “crash called” cell phone conversations at a soccer game and in San Francisco.

His latest video was filmed inside Terminal 4 at Los Angeles International Airport.

"I'll text you," a woman responds to the person she’s talking to.

"Great, text me. Text me and I'll text you back," says Benson into his phone.

Eventually the woman starts laughing. After she and Benson hang up their calls, she asks him, "Were you listening to my conversation?"

"No, no!" Benson insists. "I was on the phone with my buddy."
