If you have an older brother, you understand how much they can prank you.

Jesse McLaren’s sister recently got engaged. Since he is a talented photographer, she asked him to take their engagement photos. Instead of making this a sweet moment, he decided to turn the photos into a classic big bro move.

After he was finished taking his sister’s photos, McLaren decided to add the clown from It into the background. In every single shot, you can catch the creepy clown Pennywise. It is kind of like a more frightening version of Where’s Waldo.

Jesse posted the finished photos on his Twitter. In the caption, he wrote “My sister asked me to shoot her engagement pics so I hid Pennywise the Clown in every photo. Countdown until she notices.”

For those who are unaware, Pennywise recently had a reboot over the summer. The clown transformed from Tim Curry’s made-for-tv rendition to an even more frightening version.

The photo series, which is currently at over 168,000 likes, has become an internet sensation. So far, McLaren’s sister has not made a comment about her engagement photo additions. Unfortunately, he also cropped both his sister and her fiancé out of the images making it impossible to find this faceless viral phenomenon.

Twitter has been praising the brother for his photoshopping skills. One person wrote “someone better do this with my wedding photos” while another photo fan noted “if you ask me to shoot your wedding/engagement photos for free I will definitely do this too.”



We are sure that horror fans everywhere are going to be adding their own movie monster into their engagement photos. Who knows, maybe the Babadook will pop up in their wedding images. McLaren probably had no idea that he was starting an image phenomenon just be being a typical brother.
