Canadian Clown Named ‘Doo Doo’ Awarded For Bravery

I bet that’s a sentence you didn’t think you’d read today.

Clowns are pretty freaky, but this clown proves that maybe there’s more to them than being that weird creature in that one movie based off that Stephen King book. Shane Farberman, also known as “Doo Doo the Clown,” was driving in downtown Toronto Sunday afternoon when he saw a man savagely attacking two women in broad daylight.

I’m from Philly. You can hardly get on or off the bus without witnessing a horrifying crime, so I don’t see what the big deal is, but I guess that’s a pretty hardcore thing to see if you’re a maple-syrup-loving non-gun-toting Canadian.

Doo Doo was coming from a party he had worked with two other clowns, who were also in the car. After noticing the pandemonium unfolding, the clown, more known for his appearance in 1995’s Billy Madison than heroics, did these ladies a real solid. Doo Doo told CBC in a phone interview,

“I remember pulling up as fast as I can screaming, ‘Get in, get in!’ and I know that I am a clown and I had a car full of clowns, but these ladies ran and jumped into the back.”

The clown was awarded with a scroll recognizing his act of bravery at Toronto City Hall Monday afternoon by Councilman Norm Kelly.

“You’ve given an additional definition to the word ‘clown’. You weren’t clowning around. You were acting decisively and bravely.”

Canada is so pure. In Philly if you see somebody dying in the street, you walk over them and hope it doesn’t get on you. We’re all assholes. It’s pretty much just like Always Sunny.

Here’s the horrifying dash-cam footage of the moment Doo Doo pulled the women into his car:
