Elegant Autumn calendar sheds days like falling leaves

You have Stihl to thank for some of those leaf blowers waking you up every Sunday morning, but if the company would just send us this beautiful corporate gift (otherwise known as "schwag") it created, all would be forgiven. The Stihl Autumn Calendar 2010 has a mechanism that detaches each day as it passes, each sheet floating to the floor like a falling leaf. Might we suggest putting a trash can underneath?

This is brilliant. Too bad it's a giveaway item created by the company's agency, Euro RSCG of Duesseldorf, Germany. We'll look for it on eBay. The company should sell this calendar to the general public, offering it each Fall to cover the leaf-peeping period starting around September 23. Until then, this might be a contender for best schwag ever.

Here's a video showing it in action, set to the "Autumn" concerto of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons:
