Some might take a look at this video for Funeraria Lopez, a funeral home in Guatemala, and say: “Listen, maybe there are some things I don’t understand going on here. For one, I don’t speak the language, so that’s a whole big thing that I don’t understand and could certainly lead to a lot of smaller misunderstandings. I admit that freely. But from what I can tell this is a video advertising a funeral home with a man dressed up as Santa Claus and then a few women dressed up at sexy Santas or Mrs. Clauses or something along those lines, and at one point one of the women is in a casket and the camera moves up her body in a sexy way, as if trying to show how sexy your relative is going to be when they are the one lying in this casket, especially if you dress them up as sexy Mrs. Claus. And I want to say that I think this is wonderful. So much opportunity is wasted in funeral home advertising, as the commercials general stick to somber, respectful themes. They’re all generally so same-y. It’s just really nice to see someone stepping outside of the box (so to speak), especially around the holidays. I, for one, think we should all be celebrating the holidays as much as possible, and that INCLUDES in our advertising for funeral homes. So what, you know? Just one person’s opinion.” But then also some might take a look at it and just be like, “Whaaaat?”

  1. The sexy woman in the coffin just makes me think of necrophilia. But I LOVE the shade of blue on the facade!

  2. I’m pretty sure the sexy Mrs. Claus actually gets buried alive with your dead loved one pharaoh-style.

  3. There is more life in this holiday funeral home video than in that Kardashian photo from yesterday.

  4. There sure have been a lot of posts about funerals and coffins lately… You guys, should we have a talk with Kelly?

  5. So is it extra for the sexy model on top of the casket? and how far to they go with that? Is it just sexy wake posing, or do they sexily launch themselves on the casket during the sexy burial? Are they sexily buried WITH the casket? Can you have them pop out during the wake pretending to be the deceased coming back to sexy life? Does the deceased HAVE to wear a sexy Santa two piece? Can one be buried barefoot? I mean, if zombies happen and zombie-you is stuck in sexy stilettos, I imagine that would be a sexy disadvantage in the quest for delicious brains.

    There are just so many questions!

    • And yet you forgot to mention the 24-hour funeral home. I want to know what the rates are for a funeral between 2:15 a.m. to 2:45 a.m., arguably the SEXIEST time for a funeral.

  6. I think that if my grandpa-in-law had invested in high quality advertisements like this, the family business might still be going.

  7. Isn’t this just a preview for the first episode of Best Funeral Ever?

  8. I’ll chalk the confusion up to being Jewish, but I thought Easter was the one with the rising from the dead stuff.

  9. Guatemalan SNL skit?

  10. Those girls certainly look

  11. Oh sure, THIS is real but an eagle is not???
