So I may not have an exaggerated fear of clowns, but I definitely find them creepy (Which is why there's no picture for today's posts, actually. They were all scary). Not really circus clowns, mind you. But carnival and fair clowns. Especially the ones that wear all black makeup (not mimes). And since I didn't find anything bizarre that was newsworthy, I decided I would just regale my faithful audience with the following two videos.

The first is a Postal Service commercial that started running just after Christmas and New Year's to advertise their "If it fits, it ships" campaign. That's not important. What is important is the fact that this very commercial proves without a doubt that coulrophobia is indeed a justified fear.

Creepy, no?

The second is a Wal-Mart commercial advertising how much money you can save on party supplies. Enough money to rent a clown costume and makeup to terrify small children. Again, that's not important. What's important is the fact that, for some twisted reason, I find this one hilarious.

  1. You totally forgot the e*trade baby commercial with Bobo the clown... :) I love that little baby...

  2. I haven't seen that one in awhile so it didn't occur to me but that one definitely gets the creepiness that is clowns across.
