He may look like one, but Dominic Deville is not some escaped lunatic out to hurt your kids. He’s an evil clown for hire who stalks young victims for a week, sending them scary texts, making prank phone calls, stalking them from a distance, and ultimately attacks them with a pie to the face. And yes, he expects to get paid for it.
If you’ve ever seen Stephen King’s “It”, you know clowns can be very scary. I myself am terrified of them, to be honest, and I’ve never even seen that movie, just some quick scenes of it. But horror films like this are exactly what inspired Dominic Deville to start up his lucrative business, Evil Clown, in Lucerne, Switzerland. His service requires him to put on an evil clown outfit and scaring a child senseless for a week. During this time, he stalks his “prey” from a distance, sending them creepy messages, making prank calls and warning them they are being watched and that they’ll soon be attacked. “The child feels more and more that it is being pursued,” Deville told Metro, but “the clown’s one and only aim is to smash a cake into the face of his victim, when they least expect it, during the course of seven days.” And if they manage to avoid the hit, they are given the cake as a present.
According to the evil clown himself, the scary fun can be stopped at any time, if the chilled gets too freaked out or the parents so demand. Deville says that “the clown will never break into a residence or show up at work. ‘It’s all in fun and if, at any point, the kids get scared or their parents are concerned, we stop right there”, but goes on to add that that almost never happens because “most kids absolutely love being scared senseless”. Yeah, of course they do… There’s nothing like an evil clown stalking you and sending you creepy messages. I’d probably be in therapy right now if this service was around while I was growing up.
I’m sure many of you would love to be able to set up a “surprise” like this for your young ones, but I for one am glad this evil clown works in Lucerne, Switzerland, which is pretty far away.
