A clown that bears a striking resemblance to Pennywise from the Stephen King classic "It" has been hanging around the town of Northampton, England.

The clown hasn't done anything nefarious; in fact, he told the local newspaper he "just wanted to amuse people."

The man behind the mask says it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep his identity a secret, but intends to keep appearing in the town (or creeping people out) "for as long as people are interested."
