Carl Bender is the artist behind these bizarre fictitious apocalyptic products. His controversial collection of fake consumer products urges consumers to have a closer look at commercial messaging and to attempt to define limitations for corporate responsibility.

Products such as the Molotov Cocktail in-a-box, fast acting suicide beverages, and the Heroin Fun Kit don't really exist, but are a part of the Anarkon project, which was designed to raise awareness for over-the-top style consumer driven advertising.

Implications - Carl Bender has come up with some truly distinct products with this apocalyptic series. These are definitely products that will stick in my memory for a very long time because I have never seen anything quite like it in my entire life. I am excited for more Carl Bender creations.
