(ominous music)

I never really was popular in school.

When I put on this

makeup, it's like a mask,

a mask so that I can show my face,

my true face, to a world that

wouldn't normally accept me.

- [Announcer] It's being

called a creepy craze

in California--

- [Announcer] You know,

we've spoken to quite a few

residents this evening

who had close encounters

with this clown--

- [Announcer] If you

have a fear of clowns,

you're gonna wanna steer

clear of California--

- [Interviewer] You saw the clown?

- [Man] Yes, I have.

At first, I thought it

was part of the party,

like a clown, 'cause it was a clown party,

like a circus party and as we were lookin'

outside and he was just standing

there with the balloons.


(electronic pulsing)

- Hi, I'm Norton Ramirez.

Hi, I'm Norton Ramirez and I'm a clown.


(tense music)

Well, my mom always used to say to me,

"Stop clowning around!"

That always resonated with me.

I used to drive around on the weekends

looking for birthday parties at parks.


- [Man] Is that a clown?

Where'd it go?


- I don't know what's

wrong with kids these days.

They, they, they--

They don't really like when you barge

into their house uninvited.

Down there, this sewer line.

Lot of kids used to hang out there

and you know, I used to

say hi to them and um,

they would think I wasn't real, you know,

and I'm like, "I'm real, I'm real."

You know, "Hi, I'm a clown."

- [Man] I don't, what the--

- [Man] Oh, f*ck!

- [Man] What the f*ck?

- Hi!

You need a clown?

(tense music)

- [Man] Yeah, I first met

Norton at a clown convention

and uh, I think he was a little confused

at what type of clown convention it was,

yeah, he was a little

weirded out at first,

but he ended up becoming

a really good friend.

He's the type of guy that

when you go out to eat in the morning,

you know, he'll pay for your meal.

Yeah, that's a special kind of person.

(ominous music)

- I just wanna make people happy

and what makes people

happy more than this?

I even did an ad in the newspaper

but those calls were (chuckling)...


(tense music)

After a while I couldn't find a job

and I couldn't share

my gift, my happiness.

I couldn't make everyone happy,

so I wasn't happy anymore and then,

I got a brilliant idea.

I would put billboards

all over near the schools.

I put ads on all the cool websites.

I'd go to the mall and hand out flyers.

I'd show up at PTA meetings and advertise.

I didn't end up doing that,

but I posted another ad on Craigslist.

- [Man] Hey!

What are you doing?

- My mom threw my horn away.

(eerie chime music)

- [Announcer] Dozens of

calls have been pouring

into law enforcement

agencies after several

sightings of a scary

clown began popping up.

- [Announcer] It has been

blowing up on social media.

A creepy, mysterious clown purportedly

roaming the streets at night.

A series of pictures posted on Facebook

and Instagram, the story getting huge play

on the web and bugging

people out on Twitter.

(eerie music)

- I don't remember that date.

- [Man] Get away from me!

- That's scary.

I don't like to scare kids.

I love kids, I love kids.

They just, that's not how I am.


I can tell you but,

it's not really easy.

Well, I guess it started with me getting

my first gig off of Craigslist.

(spooky music)

(doorbell rings)

Did somebody order a clown?

I thought it was weird that

there weren't any kids around.

Then she kinda disappeared

for, like, an hour

and I just sat there
