Lobster Mobile Telephone Case Cont’d …

“I do not understand why, when I ask for a grilled lobster in a restaurant, I am never served a cooked telephone.” THE SECRET LIFE OF SALVADOR DALI (1942)

The red ‘Lobster Mobile Telephone Case’ is a modern appropriation of Salvador Dali’s ‘Lobster Telephone’ (Aphrodisiac telephone), created in 1938.

      Thank you so much for your interest in the Lobster Mobile Case. I am glad it has appealed to you, however the phone case is more of concept piece to communicate a humorous narrative and will not make it to production.

      Please, I know the lobster phone is not going to make it to production- but I love it and own a lobster restaurant and would just be honored to carry this lobster around with me. So, if you ever consider getting rid of the prototype you made- please think of me.
      I love it!

    I am saddened and heart broken that this case will not make it to production. These photos alone are begging me to take it to my local bar and get the number of every female there.

    How about talking to Firebox.com – bet they would love to stock this on their website! What about creating a Jellybone to expand the concept? My bro used to call the telephone that for years when we were kids!
