The mysterious Clown who has been terrifying residents on the streets of Northampton has spoken to his local newspaper the Chronicle.
In a brief interview the Clown, who wanted to remain anonymous, said he had been “absolutely amazed” at the response to his spooky appearances in the town center since September 13th.
The Clown, who bears a resemblance to the monstrous Pennywise the Dancing Clown from, Stephen King’s novel It, said his actions had been intended all in good fun.
“I just wanted to amuse people. Most people enjoy being a bit freaked out and then they can laugh about it afterwards.
“It’s like watching a horror movie, when people get scared they usually start laughing.
“Naturally, some people would have been extremely frightened by what they saw, but I hope many are starting to see it as a bit of harmless fun.”
The Northampton Clown said he was a fan of Stephen King, and made reference to the film version of It during his conversation with the Chronicle. He also said he would continue to make appearances on the Northampton streets, and may even have a special “clown day” once a week.
