Fuzz on the Lens Productions has authored a number of shorts and features. But nothing – not even their revisiting of the Halloween horror franchise – has come close to the publicity generated by the company’s “Staten Island Clown” stunt.
Company principal Michael Leavy tried to deny the connection at first. But when Staten Island Advance reporter Mark D. Stein reiterated some Post info and pointed out that Leavy was Facebook friends with two others also responsible for spreading the early viral word, the SI Clown caper was blown*:
“Just saw that,” he said of the New York Post story. “I think he’s funny and this whole thing (is funny), so if people want to think it’s me or whoever I won’t stop them, maybe I should go get a clown suit though, hopefully they are not sold out.”
When told of the Facebook post linking the bunch, he changed his tune.
