“God created this satchel to hold the world’s most precious cargo: the human race.” So says Daniel Bitton, a man who would like you to buy the Scrote’n’Tote, a backpack that looks like a scrotum… like, exactly like a scrotum… like, way too much like a scrotum.
And even though Bitton’s video seems like a joke, he is very, very serious—at least about making money. An Indiegogo account aimed at making the Scrote’n’Tote a reality has already raised over $17,000 of its $33,000 goal. Most of that money will be used to develop a mold for the mass-produced bag. According to Bitton, the prototype used in the video cost nearly $1,000 and was created by C.J. Goldman, a special effects artist best known for his work on 300 and the 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead.
Once the bags hit the market, they will set you back 120 bucks—or, for a mere $69, you can reserve yours now (they come in “Ebony” and “Ivory.”)
“The main challenge” wrote Bitton, “is to make sure the final product looks as close to the prototype as possible while being fully functional.”
Well that, and you know, getting your friends to acknowledge you while you’re wearing the thing.
