Oversleeping just got more difficult. November 18 saw the release of the Brian Blessed iPhone Alarm Clock App in the iTunes store.
The alarm clock app features over thirty uniquely recorded Brian Blessed wakeup calls covering a range of moods from the inspirational to the downright silly, a lot of which involve the shocking misuse of the works of Shakespeare. Of course, whether Brian is going to encourage you to “Stiffen the Sinews and Summon up the Blood”, berate you for your tardiness, tell you a joke or sing you a jovial song is as predictable as Brian himself.
Brian Blessed a UK national treasure. One of the most distinctive voices in entertainment today and the most charismatic of actors. A dynamic adventurer, he is the oldest man to walk to the north pole and a worthy opponent of Everest, a tireless campaigner, writer, broadcaster, footballer, singer and improver of panel shows.
The beautifully drawn analogue clock features a Sun/Moon dial, Moon phase dial, random sample alarms, a Vedic mantra to send you to sleep, Brian on a Rocket and a choice of alarm styles.
10% of proceeds from the Brian Blessed iPhone alarm app are being donated to the Walking With The Wounded charity, who raise funds for the education and re-training of wounded ex-servicemen and women trying to return to civilian life and work. Co-founder of WWW, Edward Parker, said “Proceeds from the iPhone alarm clock app will help support our 2012 Everest fundraising challenge. We know that both the journey and the cause are close to Brian’s heart and it’s great to have his support.”
The Brian Blessed iPhone alarm clock costs £1.99 and is available in the iTunes store. Click here for more.
