A Piece Of History: The Terrifying Clown Mask That Frightened JFK To Death When Jackie Kennedy Put It On As A Prank Is Coming To The Smithsonian

The tragic death of President John F. Kennedy remains one of the most shocking days in United States history, but now, for the first time in over 55 years, an incredible artifact from that fateful event will be put on display: The terrifying clown mask that frightened JFK to death when Jackie Kennedy put it on as a prank is coming to the Smithsonian.

Earlier today, the National Museum Of American History announced a new exhibit that will feature the creepy rubber clown mask Jackie Kennedy Onassis wore on November 22nd, 1963, that tragically scared the 35th president to the point of cardiac arrest. The exhibit will take museum visitors moment by moment through the terrible day when Jackie O, bored after finishing up a game of tennis, found the mask in a dusty box labeled “HALLOWEEN STUFF,” put it over her head, and hid behind a couch in the Presidential Bedroom Suite, unwittingly setting one of our nation’s greatest tragedies in motion.

The heart-wrenching exhibit will include audio excerpts from interviews with Jackie Kennedy in which the former First Lady narrates the ill-fated prank, describing in devastating detail how, after she popped out from behind the couch and shouted “BOO!”, her husband immediately went wide-eyed with terror and evacuated his bowels, clutching his chest as he backed away from the grinning clown visage that would turn out to be the last thing he’d ever see. In the emotional clips, Jackie recounts the heart-wrenching moment when Kennedy, shaking with fear, croaked out “Dracula?” and then dropped slowly to the floor, whimpering “Oh god, he finally found me,” before fatally succumbing to the scare.

Additionally, a video reenactment of the terrible event will allow viewers to experience the moment when Jackie ripped off the mask and rushed to her husband’s side. “Why have you taken the shape of my wife. ” an actor playing Kennedy screams in anguish in the clip. “I just want to live!” The President then begs for help from God, yelling “Smite this creature!” while Jackie insists that it was just her under the mask, and that all she’d wanted to do was scare him a little. “You can’t fool me, deceiver!” Kennedy responds angrily. “Away, beast! Away!” The video then shows the President swatting meekly at his wife with both hands as he writhes on the carpet, his face growing paler and paler as death overtakes him.

At the conclusion of the exhibit, visitors will be able to check out never-before-seen photos of Jackie Kennedy sobbing as doctors wheel her deceased husband away on a dolly, his corpse pitifully stiffened in the fetal position, his mouth a ghastly rictus. Visitors will also get to see the original print of the unforgettable image of the First Lady still clutching the clown mask as she accompanies her husband’s casket on Air Force One, struggling to remain composed as Lyndon Johnson is administered the oath of office just feet away.

It’s truly exciting that people can finally gaze upon this important American relic in person, and everyone should try to go see it if they can, as it may very well be the most consequential clown mask in the history of not only this country, but the world. This is something you don’t want to miss!


Personality and Origins

The personality of Indrid Cold or the Smiling Man differs between sightings. Indrid Cold’s experiences with the salesman and John Keel paint him as a non-malevolent alien who means no harm to anyone and even presumably helps them be safe by warning them of future disasters. However, his experience with the two boys and the family sighting make him out to be a creepy and possibly paranormal stalker, but nothing much more, not seeming to do any other sort of harm to people.

The Creepypasta version introduced in the Reddit post introduce him as a very creepy and clearly insane person who behaves very erratically, dancing around randomly and staring at the sky. This version is a full-on stalker, pursuing the author for no apparent reason. Due to the personality contrast between this man and Indrid Cold, and the fact that he does not seem to be alien or ghostly in origin, it’s very likely that this man is a seperate entity from Indrid Cold, only sharing the titular creepy grin.


Phoenician-Punic Grinning Mask - History


History

Spoiler warning : Plot or ending details follow.

When Anju and Kafei were children, they promised each other they would marry on the day of the carnival. Later, the two each lovingly crafted a special mask for their wedding ceremony Kafei crafted a Sun's Mask, while Anju crafted a Moon's Mask. However, before they could exchange their masks, Kafei was cursed by the Skull Kid and became stuck in the form of a child. With his Sun Mask in hand, he walked to North Clock Town, in hopes that the Great Fairy of Magic residing there could help him. However, he was careless, and his mask was stolen by the thief, Sakon. Overcome with shame over the loss of his mask, Kafei went into hiding without telling those he loved, waiting for Sakon to appear again in order to follow him to his hideout.

On the First Day, Link is hired to find Kafei by his mother, Madame Aroma, who mistakes him for a private detective. Link uses Kafei's Mask to inquire about Kafei, and after Anju receives a letter from Kafei, she asks Link to meet her in the kitchen of the Stock Pot Inn at night. She has a reply letter, which Link mails. On the Second Day, the letter is delivered, and Kafei lets Link into the Backroom at the Laundry Pool, where he had been hiding. He tells Link about his plight and intentions to track down Sakon. On the night of the Second Day (unless Link has performed certain actions) Sakon enters the Curiosity Shop and unloads some stolen goods. Kafei sees this from the Backroom and follows him to Ikana Canyon, and on the Final Day, Link and Kafei enter Sakon's Hideout together, and evade the thief's security system to successfully retrieve the mask. Back in Clock Town, Anju and Kafei meet in the employee room of the Stock Pot Inn, where they fuse their two masks together, creating a Couple's Mask a sign of their happiness. They give Link this mask as thanks for helping them through their troubles.


Appearances

Spoiler warning : Plot or ending details follow.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

While he is never referred to by name, Sakon can be seen prancing between shops and stands in Hyrule Castle Town. Sakon is always running late for whatever appointment he has made his dialogue is a reference to a frequently repeated line uttered by the White Rabbit in most adaptations of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, a classic novel by Lewis Carroll. Specifically, his dialogue more closely resembles the White Rabbit's dialogue from the animated adaptation by The Walt Disney Company, rather than that of the original work.

During the end credits sequence, Sakon can be seen celebrating the defeat of Ganondorf at Lon Lon Ranch, dancing along with the other inhabitants of Hyrule.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

Sakon is a nasty and cunning thief who frequently mugs residents of Clock Town. His hideout is located in south east Ikana Canyon a large boulder that apparently only he can open hides the entrance. During the daytime, Sakon can be found prancing about in the gorge of Ikana Canyon. If talked to, he will compliment Link's sword, and then ask to "borrow" it, causing Tatl to turn red and attack him until he drops the subject. He mentions that Tatl seems "hostile". Along with that, he also talks about Pamela and her father's Music Box House, and how he is not rich enough to afford one, possibly hinting that his motive for committing theft is his poverty.

On the Night of the First Day, Sakon attempts to steal a bag of Bombs from the Old Lady from the Bomb Shop in North Clock Town. Link can prevent Sakon from escaping with his loot by striking at him with his sword, for which he receives the Blast Mask from the old lady. If Link shoots Sakon with a projectile, the bombs are detonated, killing Sakon instantly, and leaving Link with no reward. If Sakon successfully escapes with the loot, he will appear in West Clock Town during the Night of the Second Day and sell his newly obtained loot to the owner of the Curiosity Shop. Link can purchase the Big Bomb Bag that Sakon sells to the Curiosity Shop for a larger sum of Rupees than he would usually pay if he manages to rescue the Old Lady's belongings from being stolen.

Prior to the events of the game, the Skull Kid put a curse on Kafei, who was transformed into a child. Seeking the aid of the Great Fairy of Clock Town, Kafei traveled to North Clock Town, carrying his ceremonial Sun's Mask with him. However, on his way, he was mugged by Sakon, who took Kafei's mask to his hideout in Ikana Canyon. Seeking to get his mask back, Kafei hides in the Backroom in the Laundry Pool, monitoring the Curiosity Shop for Sakon's inevitable appearance.

On the Night of the Second Day, if Link did not stop the mugging of the Old Lady from the Bomb Shop or kill him, Sakon appears in West Clock Town to fence his stolen merchandise at the Curiosity Shop after receiving a less-than-ideal price for his goods, Sakon leaves by way of the western gate, and Kafei, who had been monitoring the transaction, follows him to his hideout. On the Night of the Final Day, Link and Kafei work together to bypass Sakon's elaborate security system and reclaim the mask before it slips out of reach. If they fail, Sakon's voice will sound throughout the room, mocking their attempt at challenging him and leaving Kafei and Link stuck inside his hideout. Link can, however, escape with the help of the "Song of Soaring" or the "Song of Time".
