Over the summer, a TikTok video by user @ hidden.on.google.earth went viral showing a scary clown face under a bridge in Ithaca, New York.
The TikToker wrote that he looked like Pennywise, from Stephen King’s IT, while others commented that he looked more like The Joker, from Batman.
Others, however, offered a more plausible explanation and said it was likely a brain trick, as humans tend to perceive ordinary objects as faces in a phenomenon known as pareidolia.
One user said the eyes of the face were probably just bolts and part of the structure of the bridge.
