Wrinkles The Clown Trailer About YouTuber Paid To Scare Children Is Utterly Terrifying
No one ever asks for scary clowns, they just seem to arrive unannounced and utterly terrifying, dragging your childhood nightmares behind them like a sack of dismembered limbs.
Too much? Well, prepare yourselves, because it seems were in the season of the scary clown.
With It: Chapter Two arriving in cinemas today, September 6, another clown has arrived on the scene ready to invade your dreams and jockey for position alongside Pennywise. The scary thing is, this new clown is not just based in reality – its actually real.
You can watch the trailer here:
Rather than the scary, but ultimately fictional, world of Pennywise, here we have the real – documentary, in fact – world of Wrinkles the Clown.
Wrinkles, as you may have guessed, is a clown. However, rather than a clown you might hire for a childrens party or some light-hearted entertainment, for example, Wrinkles is clown who gets hired to intentionally scare children. Yep.
And now theres a documentary about him. Of course there is. Because the only thing that stopped me from needing new underwear was the fact most scary clowns are fictional or dead (e.g. John Wayne Gacy). But now thats not the case because this is 2019, and one very real scary clown is here because the ones in Westminster and the White House arent enough.
Wrinkles rose to notoriety a couple of years ago, when a video went viral of the creepy clown literally climbing out from underneath a childs bed.
Amazingly, the video claimed it wasnt a stunt or some clever marketing for a new film (until now, of course), it was just footage of Wrinkles doing his job. Wrinkles was reportedly hired by the childs parents to strike fear into a misbehaving child.
According to the videos description:
The child never actually saw Wrinkles when this happened, but admits feeling the bed move and hearing noise. She woke up, but was too scared to look. The video was made (from home security camera) so that when the child acted up, the parents could show it to her and threaten to bring him back if she didnt improve her behavior.
The video gained so much attention The Washington Post tracked down the clown to ask him a few questions.

According to The Post, for a few hundred bucks cash, Wrinkles will make an appearance at your location of choice – party, gathering, your friends house, the bus stop across the street, to scare your kid straight.
Recalling one such job involving a 12-year-old boy, Wrinkles said:
He was scared of clowns and I showed up across the street from him at the bus stop and he just started crying in front of his friends and ran home.
His mother called back a few days later and said Thank you! Now when he acts bad, she just has to ask him: Do you want Wrinkles to come back?
