England's Metro newspaper reports that parents may now hire an evil clown to stalk their children.
Deville is not an escaped lunatic or some demonic monster. He is a birthday treat, hired by mum and dad, and the 'attack' involves being splatted in the face with a cake.
'The child feels more and more that it is being pursued,' said Deville.
Adds Stephen Vaughan of Clowns International: "I think what Dominic is doing is a great idea. Bringing a little bit of life and laughter into kids' lives is what we are all about."
