There are a few countdown extensions in viewtopic.php?f=42&t=21051
Might be worth having a look.
EDIT:
Sorry, I don't think those are available now. :(

Have you checked out the Countdown in Insert > Miscellaneous > Ready-to-use Javascripts?

As you may know it is generally out with the scope of the forum to assist with custom or external scripts. With this said you can use the HTML Object and the File Publisher if required for any external scripts that may be required. See the following.

Using the options I think you can tailor it very close to the one you referred to.
Out of curiosity which type are you looking for?

I did and you can make the ready-to-use countdown nearly the same (apart from the flipping down bit).

@Gilbert I understand that you are a 'Newbie' but have you read the URL provided? This is a pointer for you. I have also looked at the URL you gave and on my Cell/Mobile and it isn't fully responsive as the seconds wrap themselves to the next line, so if using it would look out of place on the page. Maybe you should look for another script that is responsive and then use.

@gilbert

I made an extension awhile back using that flipclock.js script as a countdown clock. Unfortunately, although it does wrap to another line it doesn't wrap to the next line cleanly. The script wasn't written initially to be responsive and there hasn't been recent updates to it. However, if you are interested in trying it out and think it may be useful for you, get a hold of me at: ron at wizbangwebdesign.com.
