Pity the poor fool who ever receives this musical birthday card. They’ll wish they'd never been born at all.
Firstly, the card is indestructible. These Hallmark meet Terminator credentials are illustrated in this video by its makers (Canadian brothers Travis and Nick Peterson) who can be seen repeatedly dunking their hellish creation in water with little effect.
Secondly, the song will blare out for three whole hours. That’s right, three of the blighters.
And, lastly, all attempts to turn it off will prove futile. Unwise too, as pressing the button only makes the incessant ringing louder. Yes, truly sick we know.
Currently smashing its $7,000 funding goal on Kickstarter, the card has raised over $45,000 and still has 21 days to go. Happily though there’s a safety pin for you to test it out before sealing the envelope and posting this gag grenade on to your victim.
And should you be on the receiving end? Kill it, kill it with fire.
Though that probably won’t stop it either.
