SEATTLE, WA - If you could answer any famous person's phone calls for a day, who would it be? Whose texts and emails would you want to receive? A 33-year-old law student tells the Seattle Times that he was involved in the ultimate phone number mix-up with none other than Sir Mix-A-Lot!

Jonathan Nichols says back in August 2012, he went to Verizon to get his number changed to a Seattle area code. He knew something wasn't right when he started getting phone calls from luxury car dealerships. Ferrari, Lamborghini, you name it. They were all asking if a 'Mr. Anthony Ray' would like to come down to the dealership and take their hot rods for a spin. Of course Nichols wanted to, but each time he told the salespeople, 'Sorry, but I think you have the wrong guy. I'm a broke law student!'

That was just the beginning.

Nichols says his phone started to blow up with sexy birthday messages. He says women were coming out of the woodwork, sending him bikini pics, kissy faces, and of course, big butts! Nichols finally went to Google, and discovered that Anthony Ray was the Seattle hip-hop legend, Sir Mix-A-Lot.

The lover of big butts had a big laugh when he found out about the mix-up, and had one piece of advice for Nichols: forward the really sexy pictures to the new number, but only if they're 'little in the middle, but she got much back!'
