Photographs of a man dressed as a terrifying clown standing in unusual places have been posted to social networks recently by several Staten Islanders, the Staten Island Advance reports. Usually holding balloons, the Pennywise-esque Pagliacci has been seen standing behind a tree, standing in front of a road sign, and beneath a station along the Staten Island Railroad. He has yet to be identified, or to do anything wrong, but clowns out of context are classically creepy. “Bro I did a double take,” the man who snapped the above photo tweeted last week. “my heart stopped.”
