Real-Life Kit Kat Clock is freaking me out, Man

Kc01black As if freaking you out IN THE DARK AS A CHILD wasn’t enough, here it is in real-life:

Aieeeeeee! Paging Freddy Krueger!

According to the official Kit Kat Clock website (yes in all caps) "EVERY 3 MINUTES FOR THE PAST 70 YEARS… SOMEONE has purchased a Kit Kat Clock!"

MOMMY!

Don’t let the 1920′s ‘stache and snazzy bow tie on the Kit Kat Klock fool you.

It WILL freak you out late at night when you’re on your way to the bathroom.

My favorite part is this actual quote from the Kit Kat Clock website FAQ. What if I receive my clock and "I opened the box, and one or both eyes are floating freely?"

HOLY EYE STEM REPLACEMENTS!

Thanks, Liz S. [shifty eyes]

  1. Yes, I will be animating this.

  2. STOP LOOKING AT MY @$$!!!!!

  3. (but if somebody beats me to it, then hey, less work for me)

  4. That is SO not my best angle.

  5. OMG kitty butt porn! ;)

  6. JL Sigman says:

    From the look on his face, I’d say that messing with the tail will result in a painful death. ;-)

  7. Looks like this Kit Kat needs an air cooling system and sunshine for recharging :)

  8. Fantastic job Theo!

  9. berthaservant says:

    Okay, everyone HAS to see Teho’s animation because not only does the tail swish but there’s also a hypnotically subtle shift of the kitteh’s head! Excellent job, all!!

  10. homermariner says:

    I have the animated version of this at home in the form of an identical cat! Meepo, if you’re posting pictures of your @$$ again on cuteoverload…

  11. Teho, has anyone told you lately that you are one weird dude? Please accept this as your notificaysh.
    The Kit-Kat Tick-Tock would have freaked me out BIG time when I was little, and in fact, it freaks me out now. Eeeque (say with Frawnche accent)!

  12. I’ve never heard of a Kit Kat clock, but now I want one!

  13. I’ve had the Kit-Kat clock for at least 38 years, and it has NEVER, I mean EVER, not even once a day, much less twice, had the correct time on it. Yep, it’s a real cat all right!

  14. photogirl says:

    I have one of these clocks in my kitchen.
    The furry stinky nephew (a.k.a. Spencer, The Golden Retreiver) used to get totally freaked out by it!

  15. That clock is definitely freaky. The real-life version is much less scary.

  16. Theo, YOU ARE THE BOMB !!
    (head esplodes)

    Teho, I’m in awe. I wouldn’t have the slightest idea how to do that, but you did it, and it was brilliant. *golf clap*

  23. Messing with his tail might result in death, but it would be mandatory on my watch.

  24. My old tuxie used to do this! Sit on the bay window, swishing his tail like a metronome – it was hypnotic! He even had the same “spread”.

  25. MediocreDeity says:

    Is it just me, or did you not intend to post the same picture 3 times? The hover text on the one mentioned sequins, so I’m guessing you intended to post this one?

  26. scooterpants says:

    who has one of these clocks?
    can you tell me if it goes !TICK !TOCK !TICK !TOCK
    really loud ,or is it silent? could you sleep if it were in your , say , bedroom?
    I already have the black and white furry version pictured here, so now i want one i can hang on the wall too.

  27. Brilliant as usual, Mr. Teho!

    Whenever I see “Mommy!”, I immediately go all “Young Frankenstein” as in “Get me out of here. Get me the h*** out of here! Don’t you people know a joke when you hear one?!….”

  28. I always wanted a Kit-Kat Clock. The real-life version looks just like my Dante, except his butt isn’t as big. ;)

  29. scooterpants says:

    t- the animation is fabulous (i meant to say that before, but it was all about ME)
    my cat does this right before i get bit, i’ll never learn.

  30. Ah, “Young Frankenstein”jokes and CO– go together like Frau Blucher and her BOYFFRENDT!!!
    (terrified horsey scream)

  31. Phooey – work has Theo’s site blocked…
    Maybe if I scroll up and down fast enough I can see the tail swishing!

  32. charliewabba says:

    I’m kinda stuck on the thought “what if one or both of the eyes are floating freely?” Floating freely where? In the box? Getting loose and floating freely around the room? :::sudders:::

  33. charliewabba says:

    I mean :::shudders:::

  34. “Weechtor, we haff dun it!”

  35. tick, ‘tocks, tick ‘tocks, tick ‘tocks…

  36. vegas vickie says:

    the animation is great, reminds me of the real thing. keep up the good work!

  37. Harper — yeah, I’ve noticed that Vox sites are blocked by Caribou Coffee’s free wi-fi, too. Dunno what that’s about. Lemme make an update…

  38. …OK, there.
    Click the small animation to see the big animation. No Vox required.

  39. Jennie Mello says:

    ok, hands up if you are actually wondering if you can afford one this month or if you should ask for it for your birthday…

  40. Yay! I’ve had the some old Kit Kat clock for 25 years. My cat (and now my three kittens) are fascinated by the moving tail. Sometimes I’ll come home and find Kit Kat askew on the wall. I *heart* KIT KAT!

  41. photogirl says:

    Scooterpants.
    The clock does not ‘tick tock’
    but it’s not bedroom quiet either!

    http://www.kit-cat.com

  42. As soon as I saw this I thought – I want one! The clock, not the cat. They have a yellow one – that’s the closest match to my kitteh. Oh, he would love it!
    Animation is awesome, Teho!

  43. My sister had one of those clocks, but as I recall, it didn’t last very long. Mighta been a cheapo version tho….

  44. Where is the animaysche? Is it the small picture? ‘Cause I clicked on it and nothing happened, except I got a larger, non-animated version. Could be that I’m *cough* surfingatwork, too.

    [Both the little 100x100 pic and the bigger one that shows up when you click are animated .GIFs, so... - Ed.]

  45. scooterpants says:

    i ORDERED one! (kit kat clock) Black/white natch!
    OMG now i cant wait to get it…. hurry hurry hurry USPS!

  46. I’ve wanted a Kit Kat clock for years. This Christmas my wonderful husband got me one! Yay!

    Now I get to watch wag and google at me every morning when I eat breakfast. :D

    And no, the tick tocking isn’t very loud.

  47. Tractatus Blorpico-Philosophicus says:

    time for over-the-shoulder blorp!

  48. Thanks for fixing so I can see! Silly work blocks way to much of the fun stuffs!

  49. kibblenibble says:

    My grandma had one of these clocks when I was a kid. I wasn’t afraid of the clock. My grandma scared the bejeebers outta me tho….

  50. Scooterpants, my Kit Kat Klock is really old, has an electric cord, and is quiet. I don’t know about the battery-operated ones.

  51. LMAO at the hovertext for the pic of the actual clock!

  52. ROFL! That bug-eyed cat clock is nuts.

  53. I bet the child catcher has this clock.

  54. Alice Shortcake says:

    “EVERY 3 MINUTES FOR THE PAST 70 YEARS… SOMEONE has purchased a Kit Kat Clock!”

    Then it’s about time that person was found and STOPPED…

  55. Jennie Mello says:

    Alice Shortcake-
    I just collapsed on my desk laughing. That’s a first for me.
    Thank you!

    [Well, she's right... - Ed.]

  56. LOL the animation was perfectly timesd with tick tock on my office clock.

  57. Tock-tacular! I finally got to see it at home.

    Is it wrong that the first thing that came to mind when I saw this picture is “Baby Got Back”?

  58. By the way, I had a Kit Kat clock (it may not have been the same brand, come to think of it, because it was orange and I don’t remember the eyes being quite so…prominent). It didn’t freak me out. The pink quilted cat-shaped pillow that my dear great-aunt made for me, with BIG EYES that I could see ACROSS my bedroom because the street light shone in my window at night…that was another matter.

  59. cowsharky says:

    Fat round tuxedo kittehs FTW, bitches.

  60. Meg, how can you not like Kit Kat clocks? They are the best! I had one and it was my fave, before it died. :(

  61. Yitzysmommie says:

    Animayshe is top notch, Teho.
    Thanks!

  62. scooterpants says:

    well, catch me if you can ALice Shortcake!
    neener-neener-neener!
    (sticks out tongue and runs away quickly in zig zaggy motion so as to confuse Shortcake lady)

  63. Ohhh GOD IT’S BACK!

    We lived in a really old house when I was little. My bedroom was upstairs at the very end of the hall next to the bathroom which had one of those old-fashioned claw bathtubs.

    The “house settling” and that bathtub were spooky enough…

    But combined with a kitty-cat klock on the wall opposite to my door?!

    And don’t even get me STARTED on Teddy Ruxpin…

  64. I love the Kit Kat Clock Co. I have one that my mother “decorated” for me 45+ years ago (because the jeweled version from the company cost $3 more or something like that), and I love love love the fact that they’re still ticking! Made in the USA! And even when they went from electric to battery, the folks made sure if you loved your old clock, you could buy “the guts” to retrofit it to the new battery pack.

  65. cal, if you still have your not-working Kit Kat, get in touch with the company (or me) for information on retro-fitting it with a battery source.

  66. I got a kit-kat clock for Christmas once but it never moved. :( I kept it for years but think I got rid of it when I moved. Unless it’s in storage.
