Would you fork over 57k to be buried alive?
You can attend your own funeral…for a price.
A company in Russia is offering a unique opportunity to its customers: the chance to experience their own funeral by being buried alive–for 3.5 million rubles (approximately $57,000).
This week, company founder Yakaterina Preobrazhenskaya announced a new venture that promises to help clients discover their talents and psychic abilities, as well as deal with their fears and anxieties after the funeral.
Preobrazhenskaya described the morbid offering as a “true symbol of fighting for yourself and your own happy future,” in an Instagram post announcing the venture.
For about $15,000, you can attend your own final good-bye with the “online funeral” package. This is marketed as a way to reduce stress and anxiety. If you want a more immersive experience, you can choose the “full immersion” funeral option, which will bury customers for up to an hour.
The “full immersion” package includes a religious ceremony and a revival that is supposed to make people more aware of their mission and renew their desire to live.
