The Morbid Art of Making Dead Bodies Beautiful

Here's a look at the delicate process of preparing a dead body for a funeral. Warning: Watching this video will force you to confront your own mortality. But at least it shows that while death may not be pretty, what you leave behind can be.


Produced by by producer Patrick Abboud from Australia's tech news show, The Feed, this short documentary about a mortician is really touching. You don't want to think about what's going to happen to you when you die. But it's weirdly comforting to know that someone with precision skills will wash your hair and dress you up so that you look sharp on your way out.

Then again, it's really hard to press play isn't it? [The Feed]

Yep I didn't press play. Give me a funeral pyre and have a kegger, don't waste anybody's money on making my body anything more than fertilizer and ash.

My one request is that the lighting be done by giving everyone who wants one a molotov cocktail, because I think those things are just badass.
