“Wrinkles” the clown never meant to be a viral Internet sensation. When he started out, he was just another guy with a clown suit and a dream.
But now, according to Ft. Myers’ Channel 2 News, the Florida man is rapidly becoming a Florida legend.
“People pay me to go scare their friends, to dance at their parties, bar mitzvahs, it’s limitless,” said Wrinkles to Channel 2.
Florida residents have set up a Google Plus account to track “sightings” of Wrinkles around Ft. Myers and other locations in Southwestern Florida.
Videos — like one of Wrinkles lurking in a little girl’s bedroom — have gone viral and brought Wrinkles more attention than he ever expected.
“Ever since these kids put me on the internet, my phone rings nonstop,” he said. “It’s ridiculous.”
“I just want to have a good time,” he explained. “Make a little extra money on the side, have a little fun before I die.”

Fox News host badgers Anthony Scaramucci for calling Trump’s tweet racist: ‘The president is furious with you’
Fox News host Howard Kurtz on Sunday grilled former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci after he called some of President Donald Trump's tweets racist.
"You've said these tweets against [four Democratic congresswomen] are racist," Kurtz reminded Scaramucci. "In fact, you said, if Trump continues to act like this... we say you are turning into [a racist]. That's pretty strong words."
Scaramucci said that the president's racist attack on Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar (MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Ayanna Pressley (MA) and Rashida Tlaib (MI) was a "wake up call."
CBS cuts off ugly interview with Liz Cheney after she attacks host for asking about Trump’s racism
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) accused CBS host Margaret Brennan of unfairly bringing race into a discussion after President Donald Trump told four non-white Democratic congresswomen to "go back" to where they came from.
In an interview on Face the Nation, Brennan asked Cheney if it was appropriate for Trump supporters to chant "send her back" at a rally in North Carolina last week.
CNN’s Santorum gets his butt handed to him by fellow conservative over defense of Trump’s ‘disgusting’ racism
CNN contributor Rick Santorum ran into some fierce resistance on Sunday morning when he attempted to defend the explicit racism in Donald Trump's tweets at Democratic lawmakers -- with the only other conservative on the panel blowing up on him.
Speaking with fill-in host Dana Bash, the former GOP Senator from Pennsylvania was right away on the defensive when asked about the president's tweets and the resulting "send her back" chant at a rally in North Carolina.
"He says things to bring attention to these issues and I know it's hair on fire time for everyone on the left," Santorum offered in Trump's defense, which brought a sharp comeback from fellow conservative CNN commentator S.E. Cupp.
