Imagine, you’re walking home from the shops and Ronald McDonald’s creepier relative suddenly steps out of the bushes – making a bee-line straight for you. Do you freeze in fear? Run for your life? Or rather, grab the nearest object to you and prepare to do battle with it?

Cape Town based video comedian, Chris Genade, put this compilation together of himself terrorising unsuspecting passers-by in a clown suit. The reactions are as you would expect, alarm and panic – save for the one gentleman who’s initial reaction was to grab an object and take the clown on. Bravo for him!
