"I auditioned for a role in this short film that was a horror short film about a clown that went around Green Bay... this is the first step of their viral marketing."

There. Mystery solved. 
"It’s getting a little bit scary because people are starting to believe it a little bit more, and we’re starting to see some of those unsettling pictures on Facebook," said the local actor. "Not of the clown, but of people armed and preparing to defend themselves, saying ‘I can’t go outside because I’m afraid of clowns or whatever. That’s just a little too far."
People were scared of the clown, and the clown was scared of the people.

I just assumed it was Crazy Joe Davola.

Rousseau traced the origin of language to a fearful reaction to an expression of fear.

I think Rousseau. Maybe Levi Strauss. I could look it up.

IIRC, there was a bit in Cheers where Frazier was a clown at a kids' birthday party and the mishaps kept getting worse and worse until the episode ended with the next logical step being Frazier standing in front of a bunch of kids with his dick hanging out.

Somebody thought of that.

Mystery? I figgered it was a guy walking around in a clown suit, and then it turned out to be a guy walking around in a clown suit.

Surprised to see that clown mentioned on many blogs. Also surprised some teen has yet to punch him in the face, or at least pop his balloons.

Naw - it was Trump. Manafort put the fake clown story out there to clean up after the 70-year-old juvenile.

After a particularly idiotic message to the employees from a high company official, somebody enrolled him in clown school.
