A baby shower card which plays the cries of a newborn baby for more than three hours and can’t be silenced is soon to be available at a news agency near you.
The very unassuming and normal looking card is the brainchild of pranksters Travis and Nick Peterson. The card is a very real reminder to upcoming parents of the potential challenge before them, with the incessant wailing of a newborn lasting more than 180 minutes.
On the outside, the prank product looks just like an ordinary white greeting card, with a photograph of a cute sleeping infant and the words ‘A baby is God’s sweetest gift’ in calligraphy.
However, a tongue-in-cheek message inside the card reads ‘the gift that keeps on giving’. This card literally doesn’t stop crying even if the card is ripped or crushed.
President of Joker Greeting, Travis Peterson, who lives in Orange County, was inspired to create this card by his experiences with his own child as a baby.
Mr Peterson said: “I have a three year-old and a baby due in February. I am familiar with this sort of noise. This was one of our first ideas once the birthday card was successful. We figured it was a great way to say: “welcome to parenthood”.
“We haven’t yet shipped any of these cards, but I know this Baby Shower card will be a hit. It strikes a very particular and personal nerve – and yet it is still funny.”
‘The Joker Baby Shower card is a follow-up to our amazing Joker Birthday card which continues to be successful. I love hearing stories and feedback about how people suffered for six hours listening to the cards or how they decided to finally destroy the card. It’s great.”
