Do you really love KISS? I mean REALLY LOVE KISS? Would you like to spend eternity with the band? Well, thanks to a joint venture by the band and Eternal Image, you can be buried with the hottest band in the world. Although KISS has made the KISS Kasket available since 2001, production ended and the last coffin was sold in 2008. In February of 2011, KISS and Eternal Image released two new versions of the KISS Kasket.
The "standard" version of the KISS Kasket is black with the KISS logo both inside the coffin and on the top of the casket, as well as pictures of the original members of the group from their solo album covers. This particular version of the Kasket is my favorite because although it lets fans know that you are a "die" hard fan of the band, you won't send anyone into anaphlyactic shock when they walk up to view your body one last time.
The "premium" version of the Kasket is a bit more "in your face" what with its flames on all sides, a coffin-lengthed photo of the current members of the group on the top and concert photos around the sides. While my friends know that I"m a huge fan of the band, most of my acquaintances and people that will only show up to make sure I'm dead have no clue how much I love KISS. If they see me in this bad boy, I'm sure they'll either be very surprised or disgusted, depending on their moral leanings.
Some people find it both morbid and distasteful to spend eternity in a Kasket emblazoned with images of a band that is known for their over-the-top stage shows and songs about sex, ladies, partying, sex, excess, and sex. I personally believe that if you truly love the group as I do, it's just the final step in loyality that a true fan can take.
I've never laid down in a KISS Kasket (or any casket for that matter), so I can't speak for the comfort, but I can say that Eternal Image has been in business for quite some time and have made coffins, urns, and headstones for fans of everything from Major League Baseball to Star Trek and they haven't received any complaints yet. Also, they've been given the seal of approval by the Roman Catholic Church, so you know that God's on their side. Perhaps Pope Benedict is a KISS fan????
In closing, all I have to say is that a KISS Kasket is one of the most unique gifts you can give a loved one. It's also a massive signal to the world that even when you're gone, you'll be ready to "Rock And Roll All Nite" with the angels or demons, depending on where you stand with the Big Guy upstairs.
