Now, the internet has taken that lesson and tried to see if they could perfect the demon clown’s grin themselves in the latest viral challenge.
In case you missed Skarsgård’s appearance on the show, he talked about decorating his 11-month-old girl’s room with “Pennywise teddy bears” prior to the smiling lesson. You can see a clip from the show down below.
Following that appearance, Bloody Disgusting began the #PennywiseSmileChallenge to encourage their followers to try it for themselves.
