Middletown, NJ &#8220;The Evil Clown of Middletown&#8221;
It was originally constructed by Joseph Azzolina’s Food Circus grocery store in 1956 to advertise his store. In its early years it continuously rotated by electric motors, a then-common form of advertising that for the most part went out of style by the 1970s. The clown has long since been fixed in place.
The clown&#8217;s first starring role was in 1996, during the opening sequence of the Philip Botti movie Middletown. The movie won the New York Underground Film FestivalChoice award. The clown is well-known because it is unusually scary-looking. It has been featured in the local New Jersey magazine Weird NJ, as well as on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in a Kevin Smith short. The Evil Clown appears in the first few minutes of Smith&#8217;s 2006 film Clerks II. It is also known by some as &#8220;The Scary Liquor Clown&#8221;. The clown is about 30ft tall. Tourists come from all over to take pictures with it.
