Towards the end of Andy Muschietti’s IT, Pennywise (played by Bill Skarsgard) shows why he’s known as the “Dancing Clown”, terrorizing Bev (Sophia Lillis) with a demonic get-down accompanied by a slew of hallucinatory pyrotechnics. It was both silly and harrowing, an action that exemplifies how clowns can simultaneously be entertaining and terrifying.
Of course, YouTubers jumped on the opportunity to re-edit Pennywise’s dance scene; as a result, you can now see IT cut a rug to a slew of familiar and obscure dance numbers. It honestly seems as though he can dance to anything! The best of the best can be seen on Twitter via @Pennywise_Dance. We’ve collected a few of our favorites to share with you below. Enjoy!
