In the new It movie, Pennywise the Dancing Clown is a terrifying, sewer-dwelling killer who turns your worst fears against you. He is also, as his name suggests, capable of absolutely ripping up the dance floor no matter what song is playing, as a hilarious new Twitter account demonstrates.


It’s called Pennywise Dancing and it is literally just tweet after tweet of that scene where the maniacal clown performs before a horrified Beverly—except with pop hits substituted in for the movie’s music. We’ve had a lot of Pennywise memes appear since It became a box-office sensation, but this just might be our favorite. Somehow, probably due to some kind of black magic, every song fits perfectly with his moves. And some of the songs make the scene even scarier. Like, for instance...


Here are a few more, including one in slow motion, in case you were thinking a dance-off might be your ticket to freedom from Pennywise’s clutches. (You’d be wrong. Dead wrong.)

I can’t be the only one who found this funny even in the theater, without edits.

Listen, I’m not trying to have a hot take here... but as freaky as IT is, there’s a lot of little moments that reveal just how hard the filmmakers are trying to make Pennywise spooky... and this is one of those moments where it crosses the line into absurdity. The head-stabilization effect really puts it over the edge. It feels less Stephen King, more Tim and Eric.
