Imagine coming across this guy on a remote road at night... Image Credit: YouTube / Brayden Ledford
An Arkansas teenager had been driving on Monday night when he came across a rather unnerving spectacle.
According to local reports, Brayden Ledford had been out driving with a friend near a lake in the city of Russellville when the pair came across a man dressed as a clown at the side of the road.

"We pulled up down that road and there was a clown just sitting there," said Ledford.

As the car got nearer, the clown could be seen using a shovel to dig in the dirt at the roadside. Upon noticing that he was being watched, he started to walk closer while dragging the shovel behind him.

Footage of the incident has since racked up hundreds of thousands of views on social media.

As for the clown - exactly who he was and what he was doing that night continue to remain a mystery.

This is truly terrifying - not only is the guy filming while driving but he's doing it in portrait mode! The full video makes it look like the clown was standing in the road waiting for his cue and the car was already stopped with the camera primed. I guess the clown outfit must really hinder peripheral vision since it took a crazy long time to notice he had an audience.. The 'clown was sitting there, then got up to dig a hole' story is a new one to me but it sounds like a guy just hanging around in costume hoping someone would drive by - do they not have TV in Arkansas? Seriously though, I'd ... [More]

I think it's pretty obvious that the clown was friends with him. It was set up that he would drive by.. actually kind of boring..

Got to agree with this. The fact it was pitch black but he (apparently) didn't notice the car headlights illuminating the whole area stinks of set up.

I am so glad to see the return of the Creepy Clowns.  Coulrophobia for everyone!

I re-watched the video, and notice that he is driving really slow and the person wearing the clown costume is not even charging at him or really making any moments. In addition the way he tells the story without mentioning that he was scared or disturbed and tells it some calmly makes me question if he and a friend were pulling some sort of stunt.
