Alarm clock features old-school TV design, incongruous remote

Things didn't really work like that in the '80s.

Tokyomango

This cute little alarm clock that i read about on Tokyomango looks like one of those little portable TVs that made a brief splash in the '80s. Actually, in my opinion, it looks more like a toy radar device that would be found in a Fisher-Price "My First U.S. Navy Ballistic Missile Submarine" playset. But that's beside the point.

So it looks like it operates just like your average alarm clock. And since this is the Age of Laziness, it comes with a remote control. As Tokyomango's blogger points out, the remote control is, well, more than a little bit out of place. Even real TVs didn't have remote controls back then, let alone freaking alarm clocks.

What's the term for this? Oh, yeah, suspension of disbelief.
