Scary clowns are all the rage following the success of the film “It”. Hurts Donuts capitalized on the increased popularity by offering a creepy clown to deliver donuts and scare the jeepers out of your friends and co-workers. The delivery fee for Hurts Donuts is normally $5, but for an extra $5 people were greeted with the special delivery.
However, the company has denied any relationship between their delivery service and the film adaptation of Stephen King’s “It”. Hurts Donut co-owner Kas Clegg explained to Guide Live, “We always try to keep up with the trends, and clowns are trending right now. It’s fall, and it’s getting close to Halloween, so we just wanted to spice it up a little bit and do a super fun delivery.”
And super fun they are -- at least for the people watching the freaked out foodies on social media. Both the Springfield, Missouri and Frisco, Texas locations are getting thousands of views on their Facebook videos.
The promotion was limited to September 25th and 26th, so if a scary clown approaches you with donuts-- RUN! No matter how good the donuts look.
Watch the video to scare the sprinkles out of you.
