‘Squid Game’ Alarm Clock Shoots You With Pellets to Wake You Up (We Expected It to Be Much Worse)

Squid Game is the hottest thing streaming on Netflix right now, so we shouldn’t be surprised that merch inspired by the show is starting to pop up everywhere. But a recent find on Amazon that takes after the violent series is a little bit disturbing. It’s an alarm clock…that wakes you up by shooting pellets at you.

Yes, this devilish little device can be yours for a mere $45.89 from Amazon. Based on the terrifying, larger-than-life ‘Red Light, Green Light’ doll from the Korean drama, the seemingly innocuous electronic girl becomes a menacing presence in the bedroom when the clock strikes…well, whatever time you set it to. At the appointed hour, her head rises up, her mouth opens, and she spits a pellet right into your face.

See her in action here:

It’s not our preferred way of waking up (we can think of a few more pleasant methods, including one that starts with a “B” and ends with a “J”) but if this doesn’t kill your hit-the-snooze-button habit, nothing will.

Given how brutal Squid Game is, we also have to admit: getting hit with a pellet isn’t so bad. It could have been so much worse.
