No need to bury the lede here. Mississippi teen Eagan Tilghman put his 3-year-old brother to excellent use by dressing him as a miniature Pennywise from It. The results god, they’re startling. Turns out with enough talent and white makeup, even a kid as cute as his brother Louie can be made into a tiny, terrifying murderer:

It doesn’t come out until September 8, but I can’t imagine the actual movie could be any more satisfying than this:


Aaand here’s the best one.


Eagan’s wish from his sudden, well-deserved fame is to be featured on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Reached through Facebook, he told me that particular dream stems from the fact that he’s been bullied for much of his life, and “it would feel amazing to be on Ellen and prove them all wrong. Or at least show them they didn’t know who they were messing with.”


I’d argue he’s proven any detractors wrong already.

These are exceptionally well done, but I still find the thirst to be on Ellen grating. I’m totally open to the idea that I’m just being a cynical asshole though.
