30 Watt Creates 6 New Gift Boxes

Company Consists of Former Onion Staffers

EDEN PRAIRIE, MN--(Marketwire - December 16, 2009) - Today, in a corner of a dimly lit warehouse, the shipping manager for 30 Watt announced that Prank Pack,, sales have "started to be a real pain in the ass" and "messed with" his lunch break.

Due to an unmet demand for funny gift packaging, sales and press coverage for 30 Watt's Prank Pack, Genuine Fake, Gift Boxes have indeed exploded this holiday season. "Coverage from the likes of LA Times, Thrillist, Gizmodo, Daily Candy, WPIX, and CNet is a leading indicator an epidemic is imminent," said Arik Nordby, Founder, Creative Director and non-licensed Epidemiologist.

Daily Candy -- "we're kinda disappointed these things don't really exist"

LA Times loves the Prank Packs -- "Coffee Talkie is the Tech Gift of the Season..."

GIZMODO digs the Dream Griddle -- "If there's a better, cheaper way to see your friend's and family's true colors on Christmas... I'm not aware of it. "

THRILLIST fancies the Coffee Talkies

CNBC likes them all -- "The Funny Business Product of the Week!"

30 Watt plans to continue to release new Prank Packs in accordance with these additional holidays: Spring Equinox, Flag Day and Yom Kippur.
