Spam, wonderful Spam

You know you’ve waited your whole life to see a singing can of Spam:

I was really excited about the gift because he’s a little difficult to buy gifts for since he really doesn’t want “stuff”. And the arts (musicals, plays, symphony, concerts) are something we really enjoy, especially when we can go together! But this was for Spamalot. This gift required more than a pretty, gift wrapped box or a gilded envelope. This gift needed presentation!

I don’t remember exactly how the idea came to me but I was, nonetheless, inspired. My first thought was the recording of the Spam song and somehow getting it to play when he opened his gift. Then the idea of putting the tickets into a can of Spam (sans Spam, like you really had to ask!) with the song playing was even more brilliant, if I do say so myself.

Many thanks to Phil and my father-in-law for helping me turn my inspiration into reality.
