The showdown we’ve been waiting for.
Lurking on the fringes of the slow-motion nightmare that is 2016 are those creepy clowns. You know, the kind that never had a circus act and just stand around in mostly-deserted locales late at night to scare the everliving shit out of anyone unfortunate enough to run across them? The clowns.

Christening himself the “Redneck Ninja” in his most recent video, Cooley demonstrates the cat-like agility and knife-throwing skills that are sure to send any jumpsuited juggler scurrying back to his comically tiny car.
