The Late Movies: Horrible Alarm Clocks

Image credit: 

We've written about unusual and annoying alarm clocks before -- but we've never brought you a Late Movies video roundup of them. What follows is truly annoying and horrible. Good morning!

Chicken Alarm Clock

Posted by our own Ransom Riggs, this chicken's screams are a terrible way to start your day.

Cat Alarm Clock

Oddly similar to the chicken above, this thing basically yells at you until you shut it off. The video's author writes: "An amazing and annoying cat alarm clock from a street market in Hong Kong. Does not break if hurled against a wall."

Angry Cat Alarm Clock

The bells on the top of this alarm clock do not ring. Instead, horrible cat noises repeat until you tear your own ears off.

Sonic Bomb Alarm Clock

This horrible contraption includes blinking lights, a vibrating thingy (I assume you're supposed to put that under the mattress), and a loud beeping noise. Recommended if you like to wake up to the sound of a building evacuation alarm.

Clocky

Clocky has wheels, and zooms away from you when it goes off. It makes R2D2-like beeps and whistles. What could possibly go wrong?

Blast-Off/Air Raid Alarm Clock

This little guy sounds like the beginning of a thermonuclear strike.

Goku Alarm Clock

"Good morning" indeed.

Yoko Ono Alarm Clock

The video's author writes: It's just a SONY Dream Machine alarm clock/CD player with a copy of Yoko Ono's Fly? CD stuck in it and the alarm set to play track 4, "Don't Worry Kyoko (Mummy's Only Looking For Her Hand In The Snow)."

Full-Bed Air-Compressor Alarm Clock

Ingenious and horrifying. Neck/spine trauma will almost certainly ensue.
