What’s a toastie you ask? Only the internet’s newest form of narcissism. If you were sick of your plain old gluten-free Jesus toast, Vermont Novelty Toaster Corporation has the solution. The creators of the Holy Toast (anyone? Sorry, Catholic school occupational hazard) have delved into the increasingly popular market of selfies. By just uploading a photo to the site and paying a crisp $75 for your template and toaster, you can enjoy the burnt and buttery taste of your own face. In need of some serious likes? #SelfieSunday your breakie of OJ, some bomb homemade jam and a toastie of your beautiful self. BOOM. Insta-friends.
Once uploaded to the site, the photo is retouched in Photoshop to clean up the lines and simplify the image. Then, the image is cut out in the metal templates by The GoTorch, a tool powered by compressed air and electricity. If the plate looks good, the GoTorch cuts the second one (because you can’t just have one piece of toastie, obviously.) Each template is inserted into the specially made toaster and shipped off to your doorstep so you can show all your friends how committed you are to the fame of your own face.
The image of your face will then be burned onto your toast for the world to see.
