1-666-666-6666 Phone & FAX Number of the Beast
1-866-666-6666 Toll Free Number of the Beast
(which could also be written 18-666-666-666!)

99.95 for the Do it Yourself, Beast in a Box!*

You could pay more but why?

Yes, for only a fraction of your soul plus carrying charges, we'll send you Beast in a Box!* Guaranteed to cause chaos, pain, and what will seem like an utterly dire end of the world type senario using just the venals you have lying around the house!

For an additonal $35.99, you can also upgrade to ensure your Beast in a Box! is customized to meet all your apocalyptic needs.

*Beast in a Box! is not sold in stores and is only available via this toll free number. Supplies are limited, restrictions may apply so order today!
