LOST: The Final Season

All Jack ever wanted was to get off the island.

Groundhog Day? Unless we’re talking about the Bill Murray movie of the same name, I’m much more interested in the season premiere of Lost tonight! Which got me to thinking: if the survivors of the crash had perhaps had some helpful promotional items on their persons, things might have gone a little differently on the island…

  • First things first: no one should leave home without Custom Lip Balm and Personalized Mints. You never know when you might crash land on a time-traveling electromagnetic island with a handful of attractive strangers!
  • Anything from the Dynamo line could have saved the day. The batteries in this line of lights and radios are recharged by hand cranking. Palm trees don’t exactly have power outlets, despite what you may have heard about “green power.”
  • If the passengers of Oceanic 815 had Promotional Luggage Locks to secure their possessions, they wouldn’t have had to buy their aspirin and deodorant back from Sawyer.
  • The survivors don’t apply nearly enough sunscreen! A waterproof container filled with sun protection items such as Personalized Sunscreen would have been a life saver–or at least a skin saver.
  • It would have been hard to get through airport security in a carry-on, but a Custom Survival Kit would have been perfect for Locke. From

    Item 8446 5-in-1 Camping/Survival Kit

    chopping wood to breaking into Dharma stations, it has everything he would have needed–not that he didn’t make do just fine with what the island provided.

  • A compass probably wouldn’t have done much good, what with the electromagnetic field and all. But maybe an Imprinted Pedometer could have helped them map out the island.

Your turn! What promo products do you think the survivors could have used in their early days on the island?

    How about a sunscreen you can eat!? One that is not only able to protect you from the sun’s harmful UV rays, but that if you eat it will provide great nutritional value as well as healthy antioxidants for all those unusual bugs or diseases!
