Yes, why be soothed steadily awake by your smart phone’s gently undulating crescendo when you can be startled into immediate consciousness by the Working Class Man’s blood-curdling wail?
The innovative new piece of official Barnesy merch arrives after the Cold Chisel legend gained newfound global notoriety for his ball-tearing shriek as the cowboy “ghost of Ol’ Jimmy Barnes” in Kirin J Callinan‘s fresh tune ‘Big Enough’, which has since flooded the internet with a legion of dank video memes and followed in the footsteps of bangers from such homegrown musical heavyweights Ur Boi Bangs to earn a diss from Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.
“Of course now I’m receiving memes with me screaming,” Barnesy recently told Double J of his unexpected memification.
And now the memes have officially crossed over to RL, being rendered as a piece of limited edition merch thanks to this new retro style alarm clock, which is available in both a blue & black colour scheme for the price of $45.
“Wake up with Jimmy Barnes…” the item description on Barnesy’s official merch store reads “…With this Retro Style novelty alarm clock featuring a selection of Jimmy Barnes’ iconic warm up ‘screams’.”
Yep. Dad’s Chrissy present = sorted.
Check out the rip-snorter video of the ‘Screaming Jimmy Barnes Alarm Clock’ in action below, or else catch the legend himself when he hits the road on his 2018 Working Class Man songs & stories tour next year.
