VIRAL: 'Killer' clown terrorizes Italian city


VIRAL: 'Killer' clown terrorizes Italian city

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED May 15, 2014

This Italian clown is deadly and isn't afraid to murder someone in plain sight.

Watch above as two pranksters in Perugia wait "more than 20 hours" for victims. As part of their scheme, a "scout would radio [Matteo] Moroni and [Diego] Dolciami when he spotted the perfect person," reports the New York Daily News. "The pair avoided certain victims who they feared could have been hurt: older men, women (who might have been pregnant) and children."

Moroni, 27, filmed while Dolciami, 27, played the cold-blooded killer clown.

"I was surprised by the reactions to be honest," Moroni tells the Daily News. "I thought people would just laugh in the clown's face and see that it was all fake."

"We used more than 30 liters of fake blood," DMPranksProductions details their YouTube video. 


And their most real-life dangerous moment? "The guy at gas station [seen in the video] pulled a knife, but nobody noticed it until we revealed the prank," further reads the YouTube description.


Afterwards Moroni and Dolciami told every "victim" in the video of their prank, except for one. And no, the clown did not actually kill him.


One man ran away from the clown in the metro tunnel and "legend has it he's still running," Moroni and Dolciami joke with the Daily News.
