An Aussie reporter lost it over while reporting on the scary clown craze sweeping across the world

Australian Sunrise host Samantha Armytage has been left in fits of hysterics, after an interview with a pair of awkward clowns went way off track.

Armytage, along with co-host David Koch, were chatting with the professional performers about the recent creepy clown craze, when things got really creepy.

Initially the interview seemed to be going to plan with clowns 'Hot Stuff' from Melbourne and 'Jelby' from Sydney talking about the impact the new craze is having on business.

Hot Stuff told Sam and Kochie that work was slow while Jelby said the opposite.

"I don't think it is dropping off, my business is booming. We sell joy, so how can they go out of style?" she said.

Things took an awkward turn towards the end of the segment when Jelby offered to dance.

"No", Armytage responded, before changing her mind a few seconds later saying, "Jelby do your dance, sorry".

There are no words to describe the Sydney clown's dance routine that followed, leaving the Sunrise hosts speechless.

"How can I be scary", Jelby said.

"I thought it was a bit scary", Armytage struggled to say through fits of laughter.

The laughter from the hosts and studio crew only grew louder, when Hot Stuff reappeared on screen, inexplicably holding a guinea pig.

Creepy but hilarious.
