Northampton's anonymous nightmare fuel still refuses to reveal his true identity, but insists that people should see his antics as "a bit of harmless fun" — even those who have been "extremely frightened" by him.
"Most people enjoy being a bit freaked out and then they can laugh about it afterwards," the Pennywise lookalike told the Northampton Chronicle & Echo. "It’s like watching a horror movie, when people get scared they usually start laughing."
The clown says he is indeed a fan of Stephen King, and admits to being inspired by the film adaptation of the horror novel It.
Though he has found it increasingly difficult "to keep his identity a secret," the clown promised to keep popping up in random places "for as long as people are interested."
