Creepy clown turns up in cemetery at night

A couple in Chicago have filmed a strange figure dressed as a clown breaking in to a local cemetery.
Following on from last year's mysterious spate of 'creepy clown' sightings comes a new phenomenon - this time involving clowns turning up in cemeteries in an apparent attempt to freak people out.

One such incident was caught on camera at Rosehill Cemetery by Julia Graham who had been driving past with her husband when the couple spotted an odd figure climbing over the gate.

When they stopped to take a closer look the clown stopped and waved slowly at them for a moment while illuminated by the car's headlights before turning around and disappearing in to the darkness.

"I mean, this was somebody putting forth a lot of effort - and being really weird," she said.

DON'T LET THE CLOWNS WIN by feeding off your fear energy like vampires! The next time you see one while out in public, run towards it and hug it and smother it with sloppy kisses while professing your undying love for clowns!

Viral marketing for the remake/reboot of IT! Maybe another Killer Clowns from Outer Space. (I see I was beaten to that) Maybe the guy lost a bet or promised a buddy to do that when he died.

This incident, like the other clown incidents, is an interesting example of how our hippocampus and amygdala respond to fear. Or, how we as humans respond to novelty, however benign.

Forget the outfit, that's a very impressive feat to scale that Gate.
