Seattle, WA, January 11, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- A Seattle-based company, claiming to be "the only licensed and registered distributor of reservations in Heaven”, is offering to hold ones spot in the clouds, but not without naysayers. Reserve A Spot in Heaven (www.reserveaspotinheaven.com) offers its services through their travel kits, which include "everything needed to transport one individual to Heaven.” Currently the site offers two kits to get you to Paradise: a basic Essential Travel Pack and an upgraded All Access Pack, both including a 100% money back guarantee. These kits come complete with a unique reservation certificate, citizen of Heaven I.D. card, flight boarding pass and a Heaven 101 mini instructional guide. The All Access Pack even includes a special VIP pass to access exclusive areas off limits to most, such as ‘the Land of Milk and Honey’ and ‘Thug Mansion.’
Continuing in the same vein, the site says it is "directly affiliated and sent down by The Board of Heavenly Officials, the only governing body in Heaven, to offer you one thing and one thing only: a worry free, secure way into Heaven." And with a money back guarantee, what do you have to lose? It is claimed that that most of their ‘reservation holders’ get in, and if for some reason someone is “plagued by those malevolent evils of the underworld” and can’t make the journey successfully, then they will refund their money with no questions asked.
The kits are intended to be gag gifts, but some critics aren’t laughing about it. "I wish you the worst and hope you suffer, because that monetary pool of happiness that you swim in on mother earth will soon be fire and hot lava in the dungeons of hell. May Christ purge the devil from within you. May the devil be gone!" e-mailed one individual.
"We don't want people to take it seriously. It's more of just a fun idea we came up with that we thought we'd turn into a novelty gift," said Edgar Kim, 22, half of the duo who started Reserve A Spot In Heaven. His partner, Nathan Davis, 23, thinks it’s hilarious. “People are loving this! We get so much fan mail from people telling us how awesome this is that it’s ridiculous. Our intentions are good and we don’t want to offend anybody. We hope everyone can just take it with a grain of salt and get a good laugh out of it.”
When asked if they thought they would get into Heaven, the two responded with confidence that they believed they would. “We have the first two reserved spots up there. There’s no doubt we’re going.” joked Nathan. "I'm pretty sure if He's got a sense of humor, He'll like me," proclaimed Edgar. “We’re good guys just having some fun. We’re not worrying about too much.”
