  1. great, thanks, now i’m going to have my own kind of scary nitemare tonight!

  2. I remember that ad from when I was a kid. That clown scared the hell out of me. There is nothing good behind those eyes.

  4. Yeah, I remember that ad too, but I do not remember realizing how creepy that clown is…
