A wall clock with album covers? Plenty of record collectors like to display their favorite LPs in various ways. However, this video will likely give vinyl and music lovers a fun project, especially if they have a large, blank wall to decorate.

Rudy Willingham shared the video below to his over 443,000 followers on Instagram. The video shows him using album covers to create a giant wall clock. He cleverly used specific covers to represent the numbers on the clock. For example, The Beatles compilation appropriately represents the “1” on the clock, while the soundtrack to the movie 8 Mile represents the “8.”

 

The full list of titles used in the clip is as follows:

-The Beatles “1”
-2Pac ‘”All Eyez on Me”
-Three Dog Night “Seven Separate Fools”
-Four Tops “Reach Out”
-Jackson 5 “The Ultimate Collection”
-Black Flag “Six Pack”
-Sault “7”
-8 Mile Soundtrack
-Nine Inch Nails “With Teeth”
-10cc “The Things We Do For Love”
-Regina Spektor “11:11”
-Taylor Swift “Midnights”

Plenty of people showed this idea a lot of love in the comments and also had number suggestions, too. One person wrote, “Alternatively, 1-4 could just be Led Zeppelin.” Another person saw a lost opportunity and shared, “Should’ve done Pearl Jam 10.” One person offered the clever one-liner, “What time is it, babe? Half past Nine Inch Nails. Love it.”
