Discospock.com Releases Epic
Fial with Cousin Eddie, 2012 Festive Holiday Gift Wrap & Holiday
Discospock.com is pleased to announce its 7th annual Custom Holiday Gift Wrap design, "Epic Fial with Cousin Eddie," which for the first time is now bundled with themed Holiday Gift Cards. "Epic Fial with Cousin Eddie" combines images of disasterous corporate failures, failed politicians, manmade disasters, human error, and stupid mistakes into a pleasing collage centered on National Lampoon's character, Cousin Eddie (Randy Quaid). "Epic Fial with Cousin Eddie" is a reminder that we shouldn't let failure get in the way of enjoying this holiday season-- no matter how public, shameful, disgraceful, scandalous, or dangerously stupid our mistakes were in 2012.
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. The 2010 release of "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. Last year's "The End Is Near*" Gift Wrap captured imagery of Armageddon, the Mayan Apocalypse, Nostradamus, Harold Camping's Judgement Day predictions, and other cataclysmic means of ending all life on earth in a compelling End of Days theme. In a time of profound socio-economic uncertainty, social anxiety, horrifying natural disasters, global climate change, and Lindsay Lohan's legal troubles, "The End Is Near*" Gift Wrap captured the fear and terror that-- at any moment-- the wrath of the universe could end all life on Earth. What better way to warn your loved ones that their lives are much shorter than they realise, than by using "The End Is Near*" Gift Wrap.
