Here are some of the best intriguing, entertaining and interesting gimmicks and fallouts from the failed Mayan Apocalypse of 2012.
1.The Atlas Doomsday Survival Shelter
Sold by Al’s Army Navy Store in Altamonte Springs, the Atlas Doomsday Survival Shelter accommodates three to four people and is equipped to withstand nuclear, biological and chemical disasters. It can be buried upto to 20ft underground and comes complete with Bunk Beds with under-the-lid storage, escape hatch for emergency attacks, mudrooms with a lockable laser cut interior door, countertops, kitchen with sink, low voltage electric lights, electric outlets and toilet. A fully furnished one costs $60,000.
2. French End-of-the-World Wine
The French town of Bugarach was quite quick to jump on the doomsday train. The village, located at the foot of the Pyrenees Mountains,was thought to be the only place capable of surviving the inpending doom and end of the world. So what do you do if you are getting all this attention? How about selling some merchandise to some of the gullible few?
Here are some of the items being sold at Bugarach:
A rock from the magic mountain of Pic deBugarach costs 1.50 euros.
Bottled water from a local spring that apparently has healing powers costs 15 euros.
A four bedroom home with views of the mountain for 1000 euros and outside camping for 400 euros.
3. The Mayans are destroying the world because they didn't have enough chocolate
Yes, really! Apparently, the Mayan gods didn't have enough chocolate. So here's Jell-O offering the Mayan gods the ultimate sacrifice : 2,012 JELL-O Pudding Cups.
4. How about a special last Friday meal?
T.G.I. Friday's unveiled their special apocalypse menu, dubbed "the Last Friday," featuring a Pop Rocks–rimmed margarita and a predictable array of Jack Daniel's–addled steaks and cake.
5. Special Mayan Exhibits were sold in Mexico
Visitors to the Cancun Maya museum in Mexico were able to purchase artefacts and exhibits or a fee.
