A Brief History Of SPAM, Told By Toast

The history of SPAM told by an animated slice of toast, actually 220 of them, plus — amazingly — only one toaster. That's the Toastvertising promotion behind “The Book of SPAM,” an epic overview of the eponymous canned meat: from the New Years Eve party in 1937 where it was named to its WWII-era introduction in Hawaii to the SPAM-mobile of today. A great gift idea for the one or two SPAM devotees left in the world. Also, don't miss the great “making of” video. (via Laughing Squid)
