Gags in Green Bay

Mystery solved.

‘Gags’ the Green Bay Clown Exposed
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – In just five days, ‘Gags the Green Bay Clown’ has gotten more than 12,000 ‘likes’ on Facebook.

Reactions range from amused to horrified, but now, local actor C.j. Guzan is exposing ‘Gags’ as a scare tactic that he believes was taken too far.

“I auditioned for a role in this short film that was a horror short film about a clown that went around Green Bay,” said Guzan, adding that “this is the first step of their viral marketing.”

He said though he auditioned for a role in the short, he was not cast, and wants people to know that he himself is not the clown.

As part of that marketing, Guzan says actors in the short were asked to share photos of the fear-mongering clown. He wants people to realize it’s fake.~
Kind of interesting that they pull this kind of marketing deal and then worry about people arming themselves.
One of these days one of theses stunts is going to backfire badly.
