Great Coffins
April 27, 2005 10:45 PM   Subscribe

Sex sells everything, even in the afterlife. [NSFW] Be sure to check out the high quality "Fashion Line" coffins from this Italian company, featuring scantily clad models on caskets. Don't miss April in the 2005 Calendar, which is disturbing for oh so many reasons.

is it just me or are there really only like 4 pages to this whole site? while I do always appreciate women in underwear, the image is pretty small...was hoping for a little more skin...

I had a joke about stiffs ready to go, but then the scantily clad models turned out to be female. Eeewwwww.....

Wow, that first post was half a MetaFilter ago.

Now why wouldn't google find it when I searched metafilter for a double post? Sorry about the double post. I'm so embarrassed.

Google is broken with MetaFilter. Try Yahoo instead.

Whoops, I meant: Try Yahoo instead.

Heh. They have one called the "Stile."

NSFW indeed.

Reminds me of the commercials from Six Feet Under.

MattS, the built-in MetaFilter search is more reliable then Google for double-post checking. I found the previous thread by searching (from day one) on the domain name from the link.

that made me laugh too dg.

Looking at April in the calendar:

That 'observance' of easter totally trumps all the white they wear after labor day.

some of these girls are clearly in the process of making those coffins (look they have tools!) That must make it ok right?

If its that easy, it should be a feature - during checking of a FFP, there is no reason an automatic search couldn't at least give a warning...

This is great. Who said death has to be all gloom and doom?

Yeah, I know. The Goths.

If Jesus looked more like Miss April and less like the 3rd guy from the left in a Harold and Kumar outtake, I'd go to church.

Obviously, this marketing scheme wouldn't work for Alex.

Well, considering that it's made it to the front page of MeFi twice now, and I'm assuming Fark somewhere along the line, I'd say that yes, good sir, I agree.

I'm not so sure how well this works anyway, all I see is women. You say there are tools, coffins, something to do with a calendar in there? Odd, although I seem to remember they were holding stuff up, leaning against things...

Have you seen the t-shirts?
posted by fletchmuy at 6:54 AM on April 28, 2005


fletchmuy: Classic shirt! Gotta get one ...

Anyway, as ridiculous as the badly photoshopped pinups are in the Fashion Line series,

(seriously: WTF? [NSFW]) ...

... I think my coffin of choice has to be the slick two-tone ferrari red model. [SFW]

Death: don't worry, there's fucking.

Did anybody else notice that there is an American flag in the September picture of the 2003, 2004 and 2005 calendars? The tastlessness of this company is truly awe inspiring.

I looked at the image for December 2005, expecting to see a scantily clad model on a coffin wearing a santa hat.

I was disappointed at first. Then I realized that if that image actually existed, the rest of my life would become meaningless, because I would never see another image that could possibly top it. For now, I think I'm glad that such a thing doesn't exist.

As a funeral director, let me just let you know...I have seen far, far worse than this.
posted by ColdChef at 11:11 AM on April 28, 2005


BlackPebble: that's not Ferrari red, it's the two-tone red of the shirts of the Roma football (soccer) team. It says "AS Roma" under the red one, "SS Lazio" under the blue/white one - those are the official names of the teams.

It's the two top league teams in Rome (Lazio stands for the region), that's where the coffin makers are based. There's very heated rivality between supporters of the two teams. It's only natural someone had to provide a way to show allegiance beyond the grave.

Pure trashy genius.

Only one male model in the whole calendar series, and you only see his back, tsk...
posted by funambulist at 1:07 PM on April 28, 2005


Those ladies are not observing proper power tool safety procedures, and am concerned for their well being.

Hmm, a funeral director with the username ColdChef.

Attention, MeFites - step away from the buffet!

Are these available with a coffin cam?

This site contains textual as well as visual gems. From the About page:

"Its owners, simple men of good will and talent have given, throught the years, the opportunity to reach the fame of great prestige that new has become the symbol of the company."
