Uniqlo is forthcoming with its hybrid techno-fashion identity, but this still seems confusing: The retail company has released an alarm clock "make-over" for smart phones. The kicker is that jingle jangles differently depending on the weather that day, but the level of terrifying stays consistent whether it's "a SUN-ny day" or "HARD-ly CLOWD-y." Good thing the app look nice. Enjoy the commercial (or find fresh nightmare fodder) after the jump.
At least the design is pretty, but we wouldn't expect anything less from Uniqlo. Image via Fast Company
