I'm not going to lie to you. I don't like clowns. Am I afraid of clowns? No - I don't think so. Do I find them to be repulsive and want to shrink away to nothingness whenever I see one? Well, who doesn't?
This video appears to be an early McDonald's commercial. (The post on YouTube says that it's the FIRST, but I find that hard to believe). That insane warlock Ronald McDonald appears in the commercial. How would you describe his accent? Working class New York? Longshoreman?
Note also that the commercial is a full minute long. Back in Ronald McDonald's salad days I guess it was cheaper and more efficient to engage potential clown-haters with commercials lasting longer than 30 seconds.
