Fourth Annual Release of Custom Gift
Wrap: Vacuity™ Festive Holiday Gift Wrap
Discospock.com is pleased to announce its 4th annual release of Custom Holiday Gift Wrap in the provocative theme of Vacuity™. "This Space Intentionally Left Blank, Except for Michael Jackson & Bernie Madoff" themed Gift Wrap incorporates the gratuitous use of empty space with disturbing images of Jackson and Madoff. Bernie Madoff, who swindled ~$65 billion in the most prodigious investment fraud Ponzi scheme in history, and the tragic, sudden death of Michael Jackson, the beloved King of Pop, stirred a sense of profound, collective emptiness and uneasiness in the Zeitgeist of 2009. The Diluth Daily Times reports: "The artistic juxtaposition showing transformation from successful artist and financier to freakish monsters in a field of empty space is nothing short of appalling. This depiction of the horror in 2009 would make a lovely coffee mug design." Amidst a historic global recession with staggering unemployment and slashed consumer spending, this year's "Vacuity™" Festive Holiday Gift Wrap imparts not only a sense of sadness and pain, but also a "less is more," eco-friendly theme.
Discospock.com's history of Custom Holiday Gift Wrap design began with the momentous 2006 release of "Psycho Kermit" Gift Wrap, which achieved immediate "cultural icon" status in Uzbekistan and received numerous obscure design awards in Djibouti. In 2007 we introduced our classic "Wookie Disco" design as a tribute to the '70's and the "Wookie Monster" featured in the 1977 classic 11 minute "Star Wars" trailer parody "Hardware Wars." "Wookie Disco" Gift Wrap was featured briefly on "Good Morning America" as one of the most alarming ways to remember the '70's for the holidays: "Although we're not sure why anyone would want to remember the '70's, 'Wookie Disco' Gift Wrap is surely a disturbing way to reflect on the dismal polyester disco nightmare that was the '70's." Last year's 2008 release of "Warnings" Gift Wrap-- themed in vibrant yellow-- embodied a year filled with sharp turns, shocking politics, financial scandals, and economic chaos. "Warnings" was stitched into large tablecloths and used during a Hollywood Film Actors Guild conference that addressed increased terrorist threats against celebrities and VIP's.
Overwhelm your loved ones this year, by using Vacuity™ Gift Wrap: because nothing communicates the emptiness of the modern pursuit of wealth and power like "Vacuity™" Festive Holiday Gift Wrap.
