Creepy clowns have been seen all over the country, in at least 32 states but likely more. Although many creepy clown sightings haven’t been authenticated or have even been uncovered as fake, there are still a lot of unexplained sightings left to go around. Meanwhile, some people are fighting back, such as a large group of students at Penn State. We have put together a compilation of videos of clown sightings and clown hunts below. For some of these videos, it’s unclear which are authentic clown sightings and which are hoaxes, but they’ll definitely give you some good videos to share for Halloween. Keep an eye on this article, as we’ll add more videos as they’re available.
Here are the videos you need to see.

In Ohio, These Men Said They Saw a Clown on a Bridge
We don’t know if this video is authentic or not, but it really looks creepy. It was shared on Facebook by Ohio resident Chase Prior. He wrote: “Well, this morning I had a rather traumatizing experience. I woke up early to go running with Patrick Williams and we parked by the YMCA to hit the bike path… We had no idea this would happen when we started our run. The video is NSFW due to my language, which I apologize for but I was more than a little shook up. Keep an eye out of this guy or someone like him around the area because this was absolutely terrifying…” (Note: It appears this video may have been made private and is no longer available for public viewing.)
