The video was directed by Alex Powell, and the clown was played by "William Johnston". The costume's the same — it just lacks the evil head.

But Mr. Powell also posted this picture to his Facebook page last October, featuring an apparently identical evil clown head, with the caption "My new mate".

And, contrary to what he says on YouTube, he also still has Northampton listed as where he lives on Facebook.

Until any compelling new evidence emerges, we're tentatively calling this clown-based mystery "solved".

Unless he sold his clown costume a few weeks ago or something.
