Part two of our series on crossover in the deathcare industry and skateboarding. You’re looking at the “Teen Skateboarder” theme from a company that provides web hosting for online obituaries that individual funeral homes subscribe to. The obituary is the generic text and photo used as filler for demo purposes. The portrait and text would change, but the stock skateboarder would remain. I guess enough teen skateboarders die that they think this would be popular. Imagine the poor sucker whose likeness they grabbed from a stock image library showing up on every teen skateboarder’s obituary page. Scratch that, imagine being the ghost of a dead teen skateboarder and having to come to grips with some stock photo wanker on your “eternal” obituary page. For all eternity, or at least until someone forgets to renew the domain name.
So what’s next? Jersey barrier tombstones? Tombstones with transition? Actual (grave-type) tombstones as a tombstone on a vert ramp?
