Glenn Quagmire dresses like a clown and greets a woman in a sewer gutter, sounds about right from the gang over at Family Guy. GiggITy is the title of the short by the team behind some of the funniest skits and parodies on television. FOX managed to subvert at least some expectations with the punchline to the scene, which you can see above. Don't be surprised if this gag recurs at least once more, with another five months or so before the next installment of the Stephen King adaptation hits theaters this fall.

Bill Skarsgard returns to play Pennywise the Dancing Clown.
