For about $30,000 a pop, a Swedish company is offering music fanatics the opportunity to purchase coffins with built-in Spotify music systems. That’s quite a fancy investment for a speaker system whose primary audience is the cemetery’s earthworm population.
UPI reports that Stockholm firm Pause Ljud & Bild said the CataCombo Sound System coffins have two-way speakers so the living can hear the music that’s playing inside the coffin and they sport a high-tech headstone with a digital display to tell visitors the name of the current track.
We reported on the Dumbest Things to do with Yourself after You Die back in April, but this takes bizarre burial arrangements to new depths. Verdict: Spending that much money for the sole purpose of having a constant stream of music blasting in a coffin? Over my dead body – literally.
Still, people who believe that the whole point in having music in their coffins is so they can actually listen to it after they’re dead better hope their loved ones create decent playlists. The only fate worse than death? A fate that involves listening to Justin Bieber on loop for eternity.
