Chances are, like me, you’re not exactly familiar with the Caviar Italy brand. Unless you’re the kind of chap who wipes his bum with a £50 note, and for that, dear sir, I applaud you.
Caviar invites Russians with more money than sense to invest in two special edition iPhone 5s thingies, each adorned with the face of a beloved fictional character, namely supervillain Vladimir Putin, and boxing superman Muhammad Ali. Price? £2,500.
Personally, I can’t think of anything more terrifying than owning a gold-plated iPhone 5s with Putin’s mug staring back at me, those eyes promising: “Yeah, I’ll get to you soon.”
On the plus side, I dare say Russian troops might show you a little mercy if you hold your Putin-flavoured iPhone 5s aloft during the invasion, complete with Russian crest. Alternatively, they might just shoot you and liberate it from your cold dead hands.
Slightly less terrifying is the prospect of a gold-plated Muhammad Ali iPhone 5s, though ultimately I’m left wondering who the hell buys these things. I mean, even if I had a cool million down the back of the couch… Jeez.
While I’d love to be making this up, you can in fact head over to caviar-phone.ru/collection-5s/supremo for more info.
