The killer clown craze which originated in the US in August and has since spread to many other parts of the world has finally appeared in Singapore. It is unclear what sparked the craze, but many have suggested that the clowns may have taken inspiration from Stephen King’s horror classic It, which is being remade as a Hollywood film due for release next year. There are also suspicions that the clown craze was a viral marketing gimmick for the new film. But the film’s producers have confirmed that they have no connection.

Singapore’s killer clown is video blogger Joel Wong. A Youtube video uploaded yesterday (30 Oct) showed him being dressed up as a clown scaring people in various locations in Singapore. He uploaded the content on Youtube despite the Police advising him not to do so.

The video opens with the line: “Since its (sic) nearing Halloween, I decided to dress up as a clown and scare some Singaporeans.”

In one scene, he scares a mother and son when he jumped from behind a bush at night. But he failed to scare any passersby when he tried the same stunt in an underpass.
