‘Pennywise’ continues to terrorize kids from the screens to the streets, as promotional billboards for IT Chapter Two featuring the vengeful clown is terrifying kids.
IT was a success in theaters and its sequel has been highly anticipated with a promising ensemble of cast including James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain and Bill Hader, who are playing the adult versions of the kids from the first film.
Billboards for IT Chapter Two are traumatizing children due to the memorably haunting eyes and grin of the evil killer clown.
In Brisbane, Australia, an advert placed at the roadside shows a huge face of ‘Pennywise’ grinning down with blood dripping from the side of his mouth.
A worried mother by the name of Kellie told 9news.com.au that the poster has been freaking her kids out. She said her daughter Piper gets her to inspect her whole room before bedtime, but still gets nightmares over the malicious clown.
Another mother, Jane Swan, mentioned that the poster has also terrified her child, questioning the country’s advertisement standards.
As it seems, the ad is not only frightening kids but adults too, as proven in the tweet below.
I was driving home at midnight last night and it was very dark and I veered a sharp corner and on that corner was a brightly illuminated billboard for the new IT movie and I almost crashed in fear, which is either the most evil or clever marketing scheme in recent memory.— Michelle Law (@ms_michellelaw) August 23, 2019
