Talking New packaging for shipping idea!

So I have this new shipping idea. Ok so basicly what I'm using are, styroam inserts for box, heat pack, newspaper, shredded paper from a phone book, double bagged fish (note there is no water or fish in the bag you'll see...it's just for demonstration) and a big Hefty trash bag.

Step one: Cut styrofoam and line the box:

Step 2: Unwrap heat pack. Let sit for a few monuets.

Step 3: Wrap heat pack in newspaper and add to bottom of the box

Step 4: Add trash bag to box, fill with some shredded paper. Add fish and cover the fish bag with shredded paper.

Looks like a great idea, especially for mid-winter shipping!

I would definitely be pleased if I ordered a fish and it came to me that way!

My biggest worry is insulation, I think it would be good for winter shipping too!

Here's where I got the idea: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gr-3s5nxVDg

And some fail shipping videos:

Key words in the second video...replacement fish...it's not that hard to put some air in the bag...

Some GOOD videos:

(This one isn't the best I've seen but whatever) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBfbOWIy1Q0

BEST video yet:
