In a strange twist of events, the creepy Northampton clown has aquired an arch nemesis! The latest is that the clown hunter was out and about looking for the freaky funhouse fiend the other day, but his patrol came to naught! This comes from metro and facebook, where apparently the so called crimefighter has set up his very own facebook page (sigh)
Truth is, The giveaway is in this guy’s shoes and bald head. One in the same (according to my Batcomputer!)
If you take a look at this pic from a youtube mocumentary, the clown sports identical costume (The film is also was filmed in the area, more here and the movie: http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2013/09/16/northampton-clown-video_n_3933320.html ) This clown is also a bald guy, but check out he shoes in this pic:
Identical shoes! It’s the same bloke for sure. To quote from the huffington post article:
The film by Alex Powell is called The Local Clown, with its subject shown preparing his costume, with a painted red nose, a billowing yellow-patterned blouse and blue pantaloons.
The actor playing the clown is credited as William Johnston but is listed on the Star Now talent directory as Northampton actor, model and musician William Unwin,according to the newspaper.
He is seen sitting on a tatty sofa, next to two stuffed clown dolls, discussing his love for balloon animals. During the ten-minute film, the clown explores his crush on one of the “living statues” he passes by on the street.
In the video, the clown is credited as being William Johnston, so no doubt Unwin is the his name.
Personally I’d like to think that there were a chance of widescale copycat clowns and costumed heroes worldwide, but it looks as if your sprung Mr Johnston….or could I be wrong?
Like my mother in law said, he’s a proper John Wayne Gacy!
I don’t think this weird story is quite over just yet, I’ll keep you posted!
