Halloween is right around the corner, and Ellen Degeneres is already feeling the holiday spirit. After being informed that the latest guest on her famed talk show, Diddy, was afraid of clowns, she put the rumor to the test.

"No. Impossible," Diddy replied after being asked about the rumored fear. "I'm a black man. I have so many other things to be fearful of, a clown is not going to scare me."

Seconds later, a clown dressed like the terrorizing Pennywise from IT suddenly popped out of a table next his chair immediately sending the hip hop legend jumping out of his seat and running away in fear.

Once he realized what had happened, Diddy was all smiles. "You know, I woke up this morning and I said, 'I want my life to be full of surprises.' Ellen, I thank you!" he quipped, pulling the organizer of the prank into a hug.

Future note, never let Ellen know your biggest fears. Watch the hilarious clip above.
