Twitter Is Losing It Over This Bizarre Clown In Family Photo

By

We all have that family member who insists on doing really weird stuff whenever the whole fam gets together to take a photo.

However, I can almost guarantee that your brother's strange facial expressions are nothing in comparison to this boy who dressed as a bizarre clown for a family picture.

Twitter

If you're wondering who you can thank for this epic family photo, the kid underneath that creepy clown facade is Alberto Pazzi.

Pazzi told Buzzfeed News,

Back then, I was what you would call 'a naughty child. Being the youngest, I could get away with stuff that my older brothers couldn't. Theres a big gap in the age difference. I used to stick sandwiches in the VCR, blow up the microwave with hot wheels, start fires, break windows, you know the usual… and my parents we're super chill about it.

The photo, which was taken 20 years ago, was snapped shortly after Pazzi had played the role of a clown in a school play.

Pazzi liked his clown costume from his play so much, he refused to take it off when they went to the studio to have their picture taken.

Apparently, Pazzi's parents didn't feel like arguing with this bozo, because they gave into Pazzi's demands and let him wear his hilarious clown costume for the photo.

According to Pazzi,

You can tell by my pose that I got away with it. I love how my dad [pictured far right] looks a little confused and is keeping his distance from me, like as if I was some sort of freak.

Pazzi's friend, Leslie, recently decided to share this precious family portrait on Twitter.

Now people are losing it over this boy dressed as a bizarre clown in a family photo.

Twitter

Some people couldn't believe this was actually a real photo.

Twitter

Because let's be real, this eight-year-old kid is more of a badass than most adults could ever aspire to be.

Twitter

This extra AF family photo gave a lot of people a pretty weird mix of emotions all at once.

Twitter

Most people couldn't decide if this was the funniest portrait on the face of the planet...

Twitter

Or the scariest thing that ever happened to circus performers.

Twitter

Then again, you can't really blame people for being completely creeped out by this clown.

Twitter

I mean seriously, just look at that face.

Twitter

Several Twitter users left comments on the photo comparing him to one of those kids who are kept in the basement for years...

Twitter

While other people said this internet hero probably grew up to be CeeLo Green.

Twitter

Now I know what you're probably wondering, and the answer is no, Pazzi did not run off and join the circus or grow up to be a creepy serial killer clown.

Twitter

Nor did Pazzi become a hip hop artist and use this portrait as the cover for his first album: Ronald McDonald Raps.

Twitter

Pazzi eventually stopped clowning around and now works as a normally-dressed illustrator and bartender in New York City.

Twitter

Don't change for anyone, Pazzi.
