The Tug of War Clowns are an animated Halloween prop made in
2019. The clown with a hat comes in 2 variations: red and black and green and black. When activated, the clowns lean back and forth, tugging on a screaming girl as their mouths move and eyes glow and they make jokes to one another with calliope music in the background.
Phrases[edit | edit source]
- You must not be pulling hard enough. I don’t hear her screaming anymore. (Child screams.) “Ah, there we go. Screaming makes our work so much more enjoyable. Haha yeah, scream along, everybody! Hahaha! (Child screams.
- Hands off, Stevie, I found her first. No way, Chatters. I caught her fair and square. (Child screams.) You heard her Stevie, hand her over. Not a chance. I can play tug-of-war all night. (Child screams).
- (Child screams.) I’m taking my share if I have to tear her in half. (Child screams.) I’m okay with that. 50% for you, 50% for me. (Child screams.) Hmm, I don’t trust your math. (Child screams.)
- Hey, kids. We’re the clowns your parents warned you about! (Child screams.) No use screaming, kid. You became a Halloween trick for us to treat on. (Child screams.) Ah, yes. A nice game of Halloween tug-of-war.
- Hahaha. (Child screams.) Hahaha. (Child screams.) Hahaha.
- Such Halloween spirit in this one. So true! Just don’t pull so hard this time. You broke the last one. Don’t worry, there’s more where I found this one. (Child screams.)
