Believe it or not, there is a museum in Iceland that is entirely dedicated penises. Founded in 1974, the Icelandic Phallological Museum is home to over 280 specimens collected from every different kind of creature you can think of. Except for one: human. Even stranger, this open spot generated a race of sorts between two men who wished to be immortalized forever as the representation of the human penis in the museum. That bizarre story has been captured in the new documentary The Final Member, but in case that's not strange enough for you, you should check out it's limited edition Blu-ray/DVD contents.
Before we get into the set pictured above, you should first watch the trailer for The Final Member below:
So what is the deal with the crazy package (no pun intended) you see above? If you pre-order the film on Blu-ray now, you will include a set that includes a genuine bull penis. As Badass Digest describes,
"[W]hen June 17th rolls around, you'll be the owner of one Genuine Bull Penis, a staple in every connoisseur's phallus collection. Each penis is preserved in a bottle with a wax seal, numbered, and features a Certificate of Authenticity to ensure that you're receiving the absolute highest quality product. Additionally, each Blu-ray/DVD contains a certificate of donation to the Icelandic Phallological Museum, should you be so inspired."
The deal is available through Drafthouse Films - the production company behind the film - and the set can be purchased on their website. You can buy it as either as a DVD or Blu-ray for the same price, $39.99.
In my personal Blu-ray collection I can count a special Big Lebowski bowling ball, both Inception and Avengers briefcases, and a Toy Story toy chest, but adding a bull penis to the shelf may be a bit extreme. That said, this documentary does look fascinating and I'd love to know the conclusion of the battle for immortality.
The Final Member is directed by Jonah Bekhor and Zach Math, and while the Blu-ray/DVD will be out in mid-June, the film will be getting a limited theatrical release this Friday. You can head over to the film's official website HERE to find out if the movie is playing in a theater near you.
