Just when you thought drumstick bath bombs and fried chicken ornaments were strange enough, KFC ups its quirk level even more with a $10,000 USD Internet Escape Pod that has you covered, literally, for a stress-free and off-the-grid holiday season.

Providing a true respite from Black Friday/Cyber Monday frenzies, unending holiday social media posts and awkward family gatherings, this Internet Escape Pod can comfortably fit four adults and a bucket of KFC in a tech safe space under Colonel Sanders‘ reassuring embrace. The made in USA steel structure is adorned with enamel paint and 8-pound high-density architectural foam designed to block the internet coming to and from your devices.

“We’ve come up with several technologically advanced, creative experiences for our customers and fans this year. But even we feel the burden of technology during the holiday season. So we decided to go in the opposite direction and create an anti-technology product, using technology, to help one lucky buyer literally escape the holiday chaos,” said George Felix, director of advertising, KFC U.S.

This 1-of-1 KFC Internet Escape Pod is available now for $10,000 USD on the fast food company’s e-commerce store, KFC Ltd. “We were going to sell this for the ridiculously high price of $96,485.34, but in the spirit of the season, I said, ‘nah, let’s make it a deal,’” said Felix.
