Hallmark is getting a bit ahead of itself by announcing this creepy, but cool HAL 9000 Christmas ornament just as most of us are busy booking the summer vacation.
However, the HAL 9000 miniature is definitely hot, sporting a glowing eye and quoting from 2001.
We don’t know for sure what kind of creepy sayings it will whisper from your Christmas tree, but we do know the price is fair: just $20 for this keepsake, starting with October 6.
If you’re wondering why the announcement is made now, look no further. The classic 2001: A Space Odyssey Sci-Fi movie has its 50th anniversary this year, and millions of fans rejoice.
In case you missed it, there’s also an amazing HAL 9000 powered by Alexa, one that’s a lot more similar in function to the threatening AI from the movie.
As the celebrations continue, there’s no doubt we’ll see more awesome 2001 collectables hitting the market.
