Nothing says "Happy Halloween" better than a creepy-looking clown.
Last year, participating Burger King restaurants were giving out free whoppers to the first 500 people dressed as clowns, and people loved it.
The free food part is what encouraged customers to put on the terrifying costume, and I'm sure people on the streets who had no idea what was going on were scared out of their minds.
The fear of clowns, also known as coulrophobia, is quite common.
According to a Vox poll, Americans are more afraid of clowns than climate change, terrorism, and death. The people most afraid of clowns were also between the ages of 18 to 44.
Since Halloween is only fun when you get the heebie jeebies, one company is celebrating this spooky time by helping you scare your friends or family.
