Exclamation Parents in Australia complain 'It: Chapter Two' billboard is terrorising children

Quote:
Parents in Brisbane are saying that billboards for new horror sequel It: Chapter Two are giving their children nightmares.

Huge posters for the movie, featuring Pennywise the clown, appear on roadside hoardings in the city, but there are now calls for them to be banned.

One mother, Kellie, told Brisbane's 9News: “It just totally freaks them out.”

Her daughter Piper added: “I get really scared because it's hard to go to bed when you have a scary picture in your mind.

“Before I go to bed, I have to check the whole room. "And when I finally go to bed I will wake up after a nightmare.”

Queensland was pretty notorious for banning films during the VHS days. Guess it's still pretty conservative.

It's not like there isn't other ways to advertise, and other billboard illustrations they could do. Protect some children's innocence for awhile, especially at this very small inconvenience.

I liked it better when they had the last terminator movie advertised on a billboard outside of an abortion clinic. 🤣

Has the blood been added to the mouth?
I'm in Sydney Australia, and I'm pretty sure I've never seen this poster with the blood even on it. In fact, I've never actually seen this poster here at all...perhaps only in QLD?

Though doesn't surprise that someone up there is trying to ban something else...it's hotter up there, they're all baked in the head.

All this "afraid of clowns" shit needs to stop anyway.

It's like kids not liking pickles, or having the passionate hatred for nickelback they needed to to tell everyone about.

Some 20 years ago there was that one episode of the Simpsons...from then on, it's every second attention seeker saying they're afraid of clowns.
Wasn't a thing before then.
Pop culture driven bullshit that's become part of our collective psychology, it's ridiculous.

It was the popular thing to hate for a little bit, and it stuck.
Stupid.

Teach your kids that movies are movies...and don't TAKE THEM to the movie.
Don't expect the world to become marshmallows when your kid walks through it, or they'll just become intolerable whiny little nutsacks.

Personally, for the record I think this poster was way better anyway:

That is a better poster (above).

The other one looks like Kiefer Sutherland out of The Lost Boys to me:



And anyway, I don't think you can blame these little kids for the 'hip to be afraid of clowns' thing that happened a decade before they were born. Or for it being cool to hate Nickelback. And everything else we hate about people, er, I mean, that we hate about people a gen younger than ourselves.

Young children will have time to learn life is difficult. We all do. Maybe a giant billboard staring evil bloody murder at them, against their will, giving them nightmares, doesn't make this world a better place, or teaching them anything good. But like I said, it's not like the It producers can't advertise without that particular billboard shoved in little kids' faces. Just my opinion. But I don't even live in AU.

You're right.
I blame the parents, and/or whoever keeps carrying the concept.
