Apparently, Stephen, who is very active on social networks, especially on Twitter, would also be a big fan of these artificial intelligences, since it was on the website of one of them that the writer requested a dark illustration of the clown, and then shared it with his followers, who according to his comments, felt again that concern that is awakened when they play the original tape.

Along with the image publication, King details “This is done with an artificial intelligence bot. I asked my tech-savvy friend Jake if he could put Pennywise on top of a bike and this is what came out.” And indeed, in the illustration you can see the most famous clown in Hollywood, even more terrifying than usual and with his characteristic red balloon.

Pennywise the clown is one of the most representative characters of all the works of this writer, and likewise he became the protagonist of one of the most iconic productions of the horror genre, even, after his original version, an adaptation was made. on film not too long ago.

Another curious fact about these productions is that the writer has always felt proud and comfortable with the way his original novel has been portrayed on screen, both for the 1990 series and for the 2017 and 2019 films. Quite the opposite. a The Shiningr, a film directed by Stanley Kubrick but detested by King, the author of the story.

In any case, this is one of the most popular horror stories and according to the original novel, the clown has an appearance that would make one think of a combination between Ronald McDonald and Bozo (a famous clown from the United States), although in reality it is a extradimensional entity that has existed since before the creation of humanity itself, it is a negative energy that has been traveling through the universe for millions of years and has finally taken on a somewhat particular figure upon its arrival on planet earth.

According to the story, he lands for the first time in the United States, specifically in a town called Derry, where he appears every 27 years to spark an incredible wave of violence and disappearances, making this place one of the most horrible places to live in the USA.
