Young Bart Simpsons may have trouble sleeping because he's a afraid clowns will eat him but comic book writer Christopher Sebela has no such issues, and he's aiming to not only prove it but go one step further and document his one-month stay in the infamous Clown Motel in Tonopah, Neveda, dubbed the "Scariest Motel in America."
Sebela began a Kickstarter to help fund the experience, which he planned to document through photos and video and other services but mainly as a published e-book. However, Sebela quickly met the $4,500 goal, leading to some interesting stretch goals -- including purchasing a clown suit he will wear in the room and maybe sleep in a few times, writing a short comic book about his stay and being joined by Terry Tyson who will conduct a seance at the motel. He surpassed all those goals already and his final $10,000 stretch goal is a documentary about the motel and Tonopah.
With a little over 50 hours to go, he's already almost to $9,000.
Check out the Kickstarter page for all the details about the project and to see some of the remaining pledge rewards, many of which mainly consist of creepy clown art.
