Apparently, unicorns, pizza slices, and flamingo pool floats are a thing of the past.
A quick Twitter scroll confirms that only the coolest of cool kids will be carrying around oversized, millennial-pink, coffin-shaped pool floats this summer. (Erm, thanks, but no thanks.) Designed by Andrew Greenbaum and Ian Felton (the creatives behind Pom Pom Floats), the creepy inflatable features raised edges and a removable lid. (Because there’s nothing more peaceful than floating around an open body of water with a plastic lid covering your face, #amirite?)
According to Greenbaum, the duo began working on the coffin-shaped float concept three years ago.
“Had the idea to start this project almost three years ago, with my guy @ian__felton,” Greenbaum wrote on Instagram. “I found someone who could make me a sample recently and pulled the trigger. Super hilarious project. Truth be told thou, we about $15,000 short from being able to sell this to ya’ll. Let us know if you think a Kickstarter would be a cool idea or if you have a rich daddy who wanna invest.”

Since Greenbaum’s post went live, thousands have commented on the killer summer accessory.
“I have never seen something I want more,” Twitter user @shaaaychristine wrote. “A pink coffin pool float… this is my whole being in an object.”
“To be buried in a floating coffin that says you’re dead, but you’re also up for a summer party, wherever you may go,” Twitter user @BluntB0dkin added.
