Creepy clown terrifies Staten Island

Who is the mystery clown ? Image Credit: YouTube / Creepythings / Vic Dibitetto
A mysterious man dressed as a clown has been appearing on streets all over the New York borough.
In a strange echo of the creepy clown phenomenon that freaked out Northampton in the UK last September, people have been taking to social media sites to post photographs and sightings of another creepy clown figure that has been popping up all over New York's Staten Island.

With a devilish grin and a handful of balloons, the peculiar clown has been sighted standing on street corners and at the side of roads waving and staring at passers-by. It isn't clear whether the person in the costume is a copycat of the Northampton clown or if there's something else going on.

One popular theory at the moment is that the reports are a publicity stunt for Staten Island based film company "Fuzz on the Lens Productions" after several people associated with the firm posted an image of the clown on their social networking pages.

First thing I thought of too. Considering what Gacey did, it is honestly amazing this guy has not been lynched as a precaution. To be frank, it seems a downright stupid thing to do. The pic looks creepy to me. I prefer Harlequins. Looking at that picture, there are days I wish I was Mr. J...

Nothing that looks that professional. I would have a heart attack if I met this guy in an alley some dark night. He might be very nice and all, but he looks like a effin demon.

Movie company publicity stunt. http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2014/03/28/horror-movie-studio-staten-island-clown-was-just-a-joke/ Or maybe that's just what THEY want you to think?

If I ever got to know one of those people, I would entertain myself by flipping magnets at them while they weren't looking.

Don't people have better things to do than dressing up as a clown and scaring people

I'm surprized the cops didn't pick up this guy for loitering and question him?

Of course it's a stunt. Although clowns to creep me out.

Clowns never terrified me as a kid. Quite the opposite, actually. And this guy looks like a regular, streotypical, boring clown - nothing creepy about him. I still hate clowns... _
