Your antidote to the Taylor Swift swan float is here.
Behold the pink coffin pool toy— a summery, macabre float created by Canadian designer Andrew Greenbaum.
“Had the idea to start this project almost three years ago, with my guy @ian__felton,” he wrote in a post about the float on Instagram. “I found someone who could make me a sample recently and pulled the trigger. Super hilarious project.”
It looks like the dark souls of Twitter are into it. After Greenbaum shared a photo of his pink coffin float online, it quickly made the jump to the tweeting world, where people are relating hard to its “cheerful death” vibe.
Unfortunately, Greenbaum’s pool toy is not currently available for purchase. The coffin seen on his Instagram is merely a prototype.
But fear not. According to Greenbaum’s Instagram caption, he’s open to creating a Kickstarter to raise funds to put the coffin on the market.
Hopefully by this time next summer, you’ll be able to languish in the sun reading Edgar Allan Poe and musing on the futility of life while reclining in your inflatable coffin.
