Discospock.com Releases "The End Is Near",
Its Remarkably Prescient 2011 Festive Holiday Gift Wrap
Discospock.com is pleased to announce its 6th annual release of Custom Holiday Gift Wrap, "The End Is Near*," which juxtaposes imagery of Armageddon, the Mayan Apocalypse, Nostradamus, Harold Camping's Judgement Day predictions, nuclear explosions, meteor strikes, black holes, and other cataclysmic means of ending all life on earth for a disturbing End of Days theme. In a time of profound socio-economic uncertainty, marketplace anxiety, horrifying natural disasters, global climate change, Peak Oil, and Lindsay Lohan's legal troubles, "The End Is Near*," Gift Wrap captures the fear and terror that-- at any moment-- the wrath of the universe could end all life on Earth, and there is no turning back. During the holidays this year, what better opportunity to warn your loved ones that their lives are much shorter than they realise, than by using "The End Is Near*," Gift Wrap. Reuters reporter Bob Lucerne wrote, "As a result of using The End Is Near* Gift Wrap, I've sold everything and stockpiled 10 years of supplies in a new concrete bunker at an undisclosed location, where I'm now living and working. This is good advice for everyone, unless you live in one of the target zones for the meteor strike."
Discospock.com's history of astonishing 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 "Wookie Disco" Gift Wrap was released as a tribute to the 1970's and the "Wookie Monster" featured in the 1977 cult classic 11 minute "Star Wars" trailer parody "Hardware Wars." It was briefly featured on ABC television's "Good Morning America": "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 that decade." The 2008 release of "Warnings" Gift Wrap-- themed in vibrant yellow-- embodied a year filled with sharp turns, shocking politics, financial scandals, and economic chaos. Vacuity™ Gift Wrap, released in 2009, was designed in the provocative theme: "This Space Intentionally Left Blank, Except for Michael Jackson & Bernie Madoff". Convicted fraudster Bernie Madoff, who swindled ~$65 billion in the most prodigious investment fraud Ponzi scheme in history, and the tragic death of Michael Jackson, both stirred a sense of deep uneasiness in the collective Zeitgeist. Amidst a historic global recession, "Vacuity™" Festive Holiday Gift Wrap imparted both a sense of sadness as well as a "less is more," eco-friendly theme. Last year's "Harmony," Gift Wrap explored a culturally-sensitive, inclusive theme celebrating six religions and five holidays which juxtaposed Jesus, the Pope, Mohammad, Joseph Smith, Buddha, images representing Kwanzaa, Human Light, "Robanukah," humanism, and Carl Sagan enigmatically interwoven in a disarrayed mélange. Reviewers were astonished that a Gift Wrap could unite so many diverse religious faiths, including astronomers and scientists like Carl Sagan.
Demonstrate your profound uncertainty about the future this year among your loved ones by using The End Is Near* Holiday Gift Wrap: because it may be the last holiday you celebrate before the earth's magnetic field pole shift, super volcano eruption, massive solar flare, giant meteor strike, nuclear detonations, mini-black hole, new ice age, or other major catastrophic event ends all life as we know it.
