Earlier this week, It Chapter Two star Bill Skarsgård, stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to try to teach the host how to do the iconic and creepy Pennywise smile. 

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.

As expected, the results were very entertaining. You can see some examples of people trying it out below.

It: Chapter Two just dropped in theaters and became the second-highest horror movie opening with $91 million, with the first It film beating it out for the No. 1 spot. You can see the creepy trailer for it below.
