Parting long shot

Parting long shot

A VIKING funeral at Henley Royal Regatta is among the proposed send-offs in a life insurance company's advertising campaign.

DeadHappy, which also allows customers to specify their burial wishes, suggests the idea in a sponsored post which appeared in some Facebook users’ timelines.

The advertisement shows the firm’s app on a mobile phone screen along with a mock-up of a blazing longboat drifting past crowds on the riverbank.

It suggests such a ceremony would cost about £30,000.

However, somehow I can’t imagine the regatta stewards approving such a practice — unless they were stuck for some entertainment during the lunch break!
