Don't be fooled by absolutely every inch of this ridiculous looking thing. Zippy the clown doll is, to quote the auctioneer, the "WORST EVIL IMAGINABLE." Actually, we can kind of believe that.
Zippy was found abandoned in a Santa Barbara hotel room, and the auctioneer and her boyfriend thought it would make a good souvenir. Because nothing says "sunny California" like a gourd-headed snarling clown prop.
True evil never indents.
After their car started acting up, they made the reasonable decision to visit a psychic ... you know, just in case their car trouble was caused by ghosts or something. Lo and behold, the psychic informed them that their Zippy doll was afflicted by "PURE EVILNESS, WRETCHED CURSED HEX."
It sure doesn't sound like something we'd want to willingly fork out the 66 bucks they're asking for it. But the evil Zippy doll comes with a failsafe: That plastic bag it's wrapped in.
Let's see the powers of hell get through that.
Yes, according to the seller, the plastic bag is the only thing stopping Zippy from wreaking all kinds of Child's Play-style murderous havoc, because wretched cursed hexes are notoriously thwarted only by a quarter of a millimeter of cellophane.
