Pocket Jesus is a stress-relieving gag gift. Intended for the target
audience of ages 10-25. Comprised of condensed foam so as to be easily
squeezed and comfortable to keep in pockets.
1. A figure resembling Jesus Christ having a full body with a smile on its
face and hands together on its chest (praying position) completely
comprising of condensed foam.
The invention "Pocket Jesus" is to be nothing more than a
stress-relieving, gag-gift. It's purpose is to give the average American
the opportunity to summon the sacred presence of "Jesus" at will. Jesus
Christ is argueably the most profitable name in history. My aim with this
idea is to give the people the chance to evoke the idea of a savior with
their humor, thus relieving some stress and social indifference. Of
course, how the public chooses to use this is ultimately up to them. But,
my intention is to be a gag-stress gift.
The idea of "Pocket Jesus" is initially to be marketed to fit the audience that frequent the stores; "Spencer's Gifts", "Hot Topic", and others alike with some sale's pitches in mind. The appeal is a stress-relieving tool of ultimate satisfaction. The product will take its original shape after several squeezes and altercations with its form. It will be cheap for it's patrons--$2 to $5 per unit because it is cheap and easy to produce.
The physical specifications are:
3 inches tall, by 1 and 1/4 inch wide, by 1/2 of an inch thick.
Colors are "white", "black", or "middle eastern" for skin.
Coat or tunic color is not too important (suggestion is white and blue or brown).
The posing position is hands together (praying) with a smirk or smile on face.
Made of condensed foam
The primary physical look is a figure of the Christian Jesus Christ with a relieving look of satisfaction on its face. The face only needs enough detail to be recognized as a Jesus figure. The arms and hands will be drawn on the chest of the figure. The head will be somewhat detailed, and the rest of the body will be like a cylinder (the feet won't need to be outlined out of the bottom of the robe. The drawings are extremely rough as I am a terrible drawer, but the final product will have more recognizable/complex facial features (looking like the common portrayal of Jesus).
FIG. 1 displays a front view of the object,
FIG. 2 displays a side view (either side will appear identical), and
FIG. 3 displays a view from behind.
