For the past six years, 'The Scary Snowman' has toured the country with hidden cameras to capture unsuspecting passersby as they jump and scream when the snowman on the sidewalk suddenly jumps at them. Their videos have gone viral with views in the millions.

In December, The Scary Snowman made an appearance in Portland, Maine, setting up outside Mainely Frames & Gallery on Congress Street. Some people barely flinched when the snowman came to life and lurched at them, others however were completely freaked out, including some students from Casco Bay High School.

The Scary Snowman is actually comedian Jay Karl from New York City who just happened to have a scary snowman suit, so why not make people crap their pants with it, right? We especially loved to see the guy with the Yankee hat jump back against the wall. Go Sox.
