Doughnut shop sends terrifying Pennywise-like clown to make home deliveries

Good news! Now you don’t have to follow a paper sailboat into a sewer to encounter an evil clown.

You can have one come right to your door — carrying doughnuts, no less!

(If you live within range of a Hurts Donut shop location, anyway. They’re mostly in the South and Midwest — none in Maine.)

The creepy clown looks an awful lot like Pennywise from the movie “It,” which is of course based on the Stephen King novel and is now one of the top grossing horror movies of all time. However, the doughnut shop chain claims the similarities are not intentional.

“We always try to keep up with the trends, and clowns are trending right now,” Hurts owner Kas Clegg told GuideLive.
