Creep dressed as Stephen King’s Pennywise strolls through subwayAugust 26, 2019
He takes “subway creep” to a whole new level.
A magician dressed as Pennywise the clown from the Stephen King horror flick “It” strolled through a Manhattan L train Friday, clutching the chilling character’s red balloon and uttering his famous line, “We all float down here.”
The 1 a.m. stroll was enough to nearly clear out the car at first, the magician, Alejandro Torres, 25, told The Post on Monday.
“When I first boarded, everybody was freaked out,” Torres said.
Then, in true New York City fashion, straphangers went back to their phones.
Torres said he was headed back from a video shoot to his home in Brooklyn when he decided to keep his costume on for the subway ride. A stranger filmed him aboard the train, he said.
The video, first posted to the Instagram account of SubwayCreatures, has since gone viral with more than 620,000 views.
Torres said he has been filming a video of himself as Pennywise and plans to release it on his Instagram, Facebook and YouTube accounts next week, timing it with the release of the sequel “It Chapter Two” in September.
“I have seen the first one,” he said of the flick. “I rewatched it earlier this week to hear … the voice to get it down.”
