Portal for the dead targets all mortals

A frankly bizarre website that offers the deceased a chance to communicate from beyond the grave has taken on its first UK agency in a bid to boost users.

Apparently nearly 500 people have signed up to the service, which stores time-coded messages from the dead on 'encrypted servers'.These messages are only released to a list of recipients after the client has died.

PRHQ director Kizzi Nkwocha, who is leading the account for postexpression.com, says the campaign will - somewhat surreally - target the arguably rather broad audience of 'anyone who is aware that they definitely will die in the future'.

The agency won the work through another client, Guy Goma - the man who was erroneously interviewed live on air when he went for a job at the BBC last year.

One of the staff working on Goma's website also works on postexpression.

The site - which uses the strapline 'death ends life, not a relationship' - will even accept insulting messages.

As Nkwocha says: 'It gives you the ultimate last word.'

Er, yes.
