KFC internet escape pod KFC

Earlier today, we shared our list of the best Black Friday deals to shop and honestly, it’s a lot. So, now we present the antidote: An “Internet Escape Pod” designed to shield you from the chaos of the upcoming holiday shopping season.

No, this very special tiny dome home isn’t from some camping company or tiny house builder, but from none other than KFC, who has very helpfully topped it with the “protective embrace” of one Colonel Sanders.

Um, why? You might be asking. We’ll let the fried chicken chain (which apparently has been releasing bizarre merchandise all year) explain the dwelling’s raison d'etre:

Cyber Monday is fast approaching, which means you are about to be bombarded with a hailstorm of coupons, BOGOs, hot dealz, and brand advertising. Find sanctuary for yourself and your loved ones under Colonel Sanders and his Internet Escape Pod. Yup, this dome is like a magic force field designed to disrupt the internet coming to and from your devices.

And how much for this magic force field? That’ll be $10,000. please.

The pod, which seats at least four people based on the Instagram photo below, comprises a steel and stainless steel mesh cage, with the rooftop Colonel made from high-density architectural foam and a chicken drumstick for a door knob. Yum.
