Are you the kind of person that finds coffins sexy?
If so, you’re in luck, because there’s now a calender featuring naked models draped over the aforementioned death boxes.
And apparently the racy wall planner is inspired by the classic Pirelli Calendar, not Dracula.
It’s been created by Polish coffin manufacturer Lindner and shows women ‘modelling’ the latest in afterlife wear in a bid to help boost sales.
The founder of the company, Zbigniew Lindner, said:
We enjoy showing our beautiful coffins, and what better way than including beautiful girls.
So much work goes into our coffins that are only seen for a few moments at the funeral.
We wanted to show that a coffin shouldn’t be a sacred object – it’s furniture, it’s the last bed you’ll ever sleep in.
According to Lindner sales manager Tomek Kilarski, the company are planning to sell around 15,000 calendars, which is now in its eighth edition.
But he said some people have taken offence to the calender:
Some people think a coffin and religion are in the same bag. These people say we have attacked religion.
The truth is religion is much older than coffins, coffins became popular in Europe in the 13th century, as a weapon against disease and decay, not as a religious rite.
The people who think a coffin is a symbol of religion have no knowledge.
He went on the drop some absolutely irrefutable truth bombs about coffins:
Coffins are goods – you can’t find them growing in fields.
Someone must manufacture them and someone sells them, someone buys it.
Nobody gets it for free – everybody needs a coffin eventually.Advertisement
We just want to have some fun.
And if you are that way inclined, the calendar is available to purchase online.
