Man Selling Ad Space On His Urn

Idle 7

Aaron Jamison, who was diagnosed with terminal cancer, has come up with a novel way of raising the $800 to pay for his cremation. He plans on selling ad space on two urns that will hold his ashes. From the article: "Jamison said he is collecting disability, but it does not cover his monthly medical bills. He has a small life insurance policy, but said it's not much to leave to his wife. "He had so much concern for his wife and how she was going to be able to handle this," said Dustin Remington, Jamison's longtime friend and owner of Terese's Place. "It was just an opportunity I was happy to be a part of." Remington handed over a 100 dollar check and signed a contract Monday."

Who in their right mind is going to pay for it?

And where is it going to be so that other people will see it?

I'd gladly sell my back for some Tattoo Adspace because I rarely go shirtless, however, whoever is purchasing from me would probably want some stipulation like it must be visible in public.

So who is going to host this urn for advertising?

Same sorts of companies that give you free food for life for a logo tattoo, that doesn't even have to be visible.
