How awesome is this? Clever fellow and perhaps mad genius Chris Dimino designed a cuckoo clock that replicates one of the most famous scenes of Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Shining.”
Every hour, Jack Nicholson (as Jack Torrance) breaks through the door and shouts, “Heeeere’s Johnny!”, followed by a scream from Shelley Duvall. Kickass, right?
Alas, while you can’t traipse down to Target to pick one up just yet, hope springs eternal that one day you could have this baby on a wall to scare the bejesus out of your guests.
It got me thinking about other ideas for similar clocks. Maybe a chestburster from “Alien” popping out of John Hurt every hour? Or a head-explodey-guy from “Scanners” clock? The scary thing is that I bet someone out there is feverishly working on a Tubgirl cuckoo clock.
Note: If you don’t know what Tubgirl is, for the love of baby Cthulhu, don’t look it up. Especially if you have a pudding cup in your lunch today.
