Markets in everything, Ukrainian restaurant edition

Perhaps taking a page from the Pringles inventor who was recently buried
in a can of said dehydrated chips, a Ukrainian restaurant is shaped like
a coffin on the outside, and boasts a coffin theme inside.

Here is a photo and further explanation.  Many or perhaps all of the entries have themes of death.  Perhaps they should do an economic impact study:

The undertakers hope that their restaurant will be confirmed as the
world’s biggest coffin, attracting tourists to a region best known for
its mineral-rich bathing waters.

Here are even more photos of interest.

What I find objectionable is that the coffins inside are wrapped in plastic.

Perhaps they are selling them, and customers do not want scratches and dents on their caskets.

I heard an NPR story about the Pringles guy, and to clarify, he invented the can but not the Pringle chip itself.

Isn’t this the theory of the Eifel Tower, albeit phallic instead of coffin shaped? Whatever the reasoning, it worked.
