This sketch from the Late Late Show is very silly, but it’s also very dear to my heart as someone who has had to deal with writing It as a movie/book title, along with the name of a murderous fictional entity, at work. It just never sounds right, no matter how clear you try to be, with the eventual choice being a tradeoff between clarity and awkwardness.
You see, Pennywise doesn’t actually run the IT department; it’s all a mixup. But honestly, his rebooting suggestion is pretty much step one after checking to make sure the computer is plugged in, so he might have a budding alternative career here.
If you actually are looking for more Pennywise in your life, not just the information technology department, there’s a director’s cut of It coming with the movie’s home video release, and it’s expected to come with fifteen minutes of extra footage. CinemaBlend has a rundown for you horror fanatics on just what that extra material will likely include.
