A guy in Wasco, CA is walking around town late at night dressed as a scary clown, and posting his location to Instagram. Like a food truck, but instead of a $5 fish taco it's free anxiety.

People are abuzz about how terrifying that is, and it certainly pushes some fear buttons, but here's the thing: it's all for a photography project his wife is doing. Have you ever taken a picture with your family? Here's how this guy's October is going:

 

"Oh, tonight? No no, I can make it. I just thought since we did it last night too...Nope, no worries! Suiting up! Haha!"

"Can we hurry? I don't think we're allowed to park here."

"I just think you could get a better shot if you got out of the car. Oh! Is it? Is it cold??"

"Wait, stop walking? You just told me to walk. I'll stop walking if you tell me why! Is something behind me? ...okay, why didn't you just say so!"

"The cars! Are turning! TURN. ING! Well, I'm getting out of the street now, I hope you got it."

"No. Hun. I'm not going inside Jack in the Box. Because! People might recognize you, then they'll know it's me, and...of course I'm embarrassed! Look at me!"
