Pierre the New Orleans Pelican is the scariest thing ever, the Internet responds

The New Orleans Pelicans now have a mascot! Unfortunately, a) it doesn't look like a pelican b) it looks more like, as Seth Rosenthal described it, a murderous, syphilitic version of the Cluck-U-Chicken.

It's the scariest thing in the world, aptly unveiled the day before Halloween. And they unveiled it in the scariest way possible:

OH NO, IT'S GOT ADAM

But eventually, he retired where all terrifying clown murder birds go when they get old: Miami.

We're so, so scared of you, Pierre.
