This obnoxious birthday card will play music for hours until you destroy it

You will need to take some drastic action to stop it.

IF THAT SPECIAL someone’s birthday is coming up and you’re looking to really annoy them, then this is the birthday card for you.

Called The Joker Birthday Card, this genius idea plays a hideously irritating birthday song when you open it – and the only way to stop it playing is to fully destroy the card.

The business has already raised over $30,000 on Kickstarter, proving once again that people love to annoy.

The battery does run out after a few hours, but would you be willing to listen to the song for so long? The guys behind it explain how it works, and how you can send it without triggering the song:

Your card is delivered to you in a “Safe mode”. Here you can start and stop the song as much as you want. After you sign the card with a lovely message, pull the activation tab inside the card which will activate the card. Then slide it into an envelope and deliver!

They even have a fancy video talking you through it

When you’re looking for serious cash, you do have to go all out on the video.

Even when you submerge the card in water for ages it still won’t stop playing that tune. You will really need to get creative with your plans to destroy it.

As they say themselves:

We like to mess with our friends. This is an inexpensive and effective way to drive someone crazy: a card that won’t shut up unless it’s physically destroyed. Who wouldn’t want that?

This is one of those times that giving a gift is so much more satisfying than receiving.
