An anonymous person, dressed as ‘Pennywise the Dancing Clown’ has been reportedly stalking the streets of Skelmorlie, a small town in Scotland.

As the Halloween season inches close, people start decorating their homes and neighborhoods with scary decorations. Now it appears that a person in Scotland has taken their enthusiasm for Halloween one step ahead as they have decided to dress as one of the most popular horror characters and ‘terrorize’ an entire town with their shenanigans. Earlier this month, an anonymous person, dressed as ‘Pennywise the Dancing Clown’ from Stephen King’s horror novel ‘It’, began roaming on the streets of Skelmorlie, a small town in Scotland. The clown, who calls itself the ‘Skelmorlie Clown’ reportedly left red balloons across the town, as a symbol of its presence.

It also started leaving cryptic messages online through a Facebook page that goes by the name ‘Cole Deimos’. This Facebook page’s last post dates to September 30, 2021. It is interesting to note that ‘Deimos’ is the Greek God of fear and terror.

As per the Facebook page, Cole Deimos “Studied at Clown School” and “Went to Hellgate High School”. It hails from “Hell, Michigan”. On October 12, the anonymous clown left a ‘Message to Media’ in which he taunted the media and the police for being unable to catch him. It also called people to play one of his games but did not define what the game is. This post soon gathered hundreds of likes and comments.

A few days later, on October 22, the clown shared another video message titled, “Message to the nation “. In this video, the clown urged people to visit Scotland’s landmarks, snap a picture of ‘their scariest faces’, and then share it online with the hashtag #Skelmorlieclown. Some of these landmarks were the Edinburgh Castle, Loch Ness, and the Duke of Wellington statue in Glasgow.

Commenting on this post, a Facebook user wrote, “That’s a joke. Probably some 30 year old man who’s bored trying to attract attention and fame for the laughs. Don’t blame him though, coming down to where I am would be funny!”. Another wrote, “Out of all the clowns in this village he’s the best”.

In the comments, most people agreed that the anonymous clown is providing harmless intrigue and entertainment to the masses. So far, no reports of anyone being harmed by the ‘Skelmorlie Clown’ have surfaced.

As per Sky News, Scotland police personnel said that the police department was aware about the ‘Skelmorlie Clown’ but so far they have received no complaints with this regard. It will be interesting to see where the ‘Skelmorlie Clown’ saga goes from here.
