Purchased at a thrift store by Miami University students, Smiley ended up being more than a piece of ironic wall-art hanging in their shared apartment; he ended up being a waking nightmare. Within days of Smiley entering the building, the students began to experience increasingly-powerful sleep paralysis, leaving them frozen in fear as a “dog-eyed” humanoid figure crept toward them.
By the time the students realized they were both experiencing the same phenomena, the activity had gotten so bad that the entity was actually climbing onto their beds as they lay helpless. After just three weeks of regular encounters with the entity, the students requested that the Newkirks remove the piece.
