Has coffin manufacture ever been so blockbuster? I doubt it. Lindner is a Polish company. I love them.

    Marvellous. How the bereaved will be excited by the drama of the chaps working the drills, routers, saw-benches etc.

    “Is it a bird? Is it a….oh, a planing machine perhaps?”

    Well actually, it’s just some people making a box to put someone’s body in. Calm down, boys!

    There seems to be an arrow on the distribution map that lands on King’s Lynn. What have the citizens of that ancient and (in places) picturesque borough done to deserve such riches? Do they have sufficient dry ice in their chapels of rest to present these wonderful…wooden boxes …. with enough mist-draped drama?

    To answer Charles’ question – clearly, “Willow Weep For Me” should do for the first one. Cardboard? H’mm. Trickier. For some reason the songsmiths have given little attention to cardboard. Offers welcome from anyone. Finally, there’s always “Pine-top’s Boogie.”

    OK, enough already, I know. I’ll go and do something sensible. Like script up a funeral.

    Strikes me this trailer is an apt metaphor for life…could have been scripted by Samuel Beckett, if he’d discovered amphetamines. Who’s the star, and when does it come out?

    No, Paul, you make a very good point. But what music would you use to promote a willow coffin? A cardboard coffin? A plain pine coffin?

    About as far from an environmentally friendly approach to coffins as you can get.
    Nice music, and well produced video, but would prefer to promote eco-friendly coffins produced locally at as little cost to the environment as possible.
    Will now dismount from high horse before I come crashing off it.
