Those sick freaks at Coronet have done it again. Clowns. Just when you thought they’d run out of ways to spread a one minute lesson out over the course of ten minutes, they brought in clowns.

Actually, and quite thankfully, there is only one clown. But his presence is a strong one. Cackling like he’s constantly having his butt pinched or possibly suffering a series of brain hemorrhages, he tells us a story about a young boy in search of a rubber band. Presumably the clown is observing the boy from the sewer. At one point in time he brandishes scissors.

What is the short actually about, other than clowns? It was something about showing you the pieces of a story and then seeing if you can put them in order. Just as a test, let’s see how your skills are before you watch the short. The pieces are: 1) Utter abject terror, gnashing of teeth and wailing at the horror. 2) The clown appears.

Pretty tough, huh? You better watch the short.

You know, I've never been prone to coulrophobia, but I think this short is going to get me going on that.

Holly Hell what was that nightmare of a short. If I ever had nightmares that would be in it.

I expect this from Encyclopedia Britannica  but not Coronet.
For shame Coronet

What was Coronet trying to be? Alfred Higgins Productions or something?!

If I could sit through Fellini's Clowns I can sit through this.



Oh, my God. What am I saying?!

I agree with Bob and Trekker, the guy was creepy even if you don't have a fear of clowns. The whole "clowns are creepy" thing is WAY overbown these days. The go-to joke, like priests and pedophilia. But this clown...yikes. His mannerisms were odd, but mostly it was the orange and white coloring that did NOT flatter his already cheap getup.

Now I'm officially glad I haven't had an income for the last 35 months!   :speechless:  I don't have an official fear of clowns, but that one there just takes the cake! I told my boyfriend about this and it even freaked him out!  I don't know if he's bought it yet or not, but I did warn him in advance just in case so that he doesn't call me wondering why I didn't say anything about the Evil Clown from Hell on Rifftrax!

The "best" part was the little laughing spasm/stroke/stiff poop tension thing he did when "laughing."

I used to date a guy who worked as a clown at the Ground Round in Syracuse. This is more or less how I imagined he'd look.
