Freaky Friday - Evil Clown Phobia, anyone?  

I'll put these behind a cut for our more sensitive viewers.   If you didn't have a clown phobia already, you will now. D:

If you love clowns, enjoy! :D


Clowns in the Underground! 1936/37

I can't tell if the last one is a clown or just a drunk oakie.

Does the ruffled collar help? :D

The top panel of the last ad is really the scariest. And I don't even have a clown phobia.

You know what it looks like? The super-creepy artwork in the "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" books.

I guess clown ads are where that guy got his start.

The second clown looks like the one from Carnival straws.

Have you seen the actual commercial for Sugar Krinkles? Gives me nightmares still.

The first one isn't really that bad, but yeah those other two are creepy. The second one would definitely deter me from buying Sugar Krinkles.

While I realize the clown in the whiskey ad has a blacked-out tooth on account of the clown makeup...he still looks a little rough to me.

Pretty much seems like advertising your whiskey as the one that toothless hobos can afford.
