Attention parents: Just in case your children don't have anything to talk about in therapy, here's something you might want to consider:
Dominic Deville rents himself out as an "evil birthday clown" who leaves scary notes for your children, warning them that they're being watched and that they'll soon be attacked.
At the end of a terrifying week, your child will indeed be attacked. Deville, wearing a freaky clown mask, will smash a cake into your child's face, Metro reported.
Deville is capitalizing on what has become a mainstay for all circus-going kids: the fear of clowns. You may think Stephen King's "It" was scary, but Deville will keep you shaking in your big, red floppy shoes.
Throughout the week leading up to the child's birthday, "The child feels more and more that it is being pursued," Deville told Metro. "The clown's one and only aim is to smash a cake into the face of his victim, when they least expect it, during the course of seven days."
Deville harasses his targets with texts, phone calls and letters to let them know that their time is coming, according to the Herald Sun.
Of course, since the creepy stunt is "all in fun," Deville promises to back off if he's asked to by parents.
"If at any point the kids get scared or their parents are concerned we stop right there," he said. "But most kids absolutely love being scared senseless."
Deville, a Swiss actor working in Lucerne, told Orange News that he got the idea from watching his favorite horror movies.
