Someone is pulling a fast one. But, take a look to see the state of ghost hoaxing these days.
CCTV footage said to show a ghost outside a London community centre is going viral after it was posted on YouTube.
It shows a transparent figure leaving the centre and walking towards a metal railing before seemingly disappearing into thin air.
The strange moment was reportedly witnessed by the centre’s caretaker who went outside to investigate.
“After downloading the CCTV footage I was surprised to see that the figure had been recorded onto the system. I can’t explain this.”
The community centre was reportedly used as a prisoner of war camp for Italian prisoners during World War II – leading many to speculate the haunting figure may be from the 1940s.
First of all, we can’t be certain the footage was not tampered with. This is an easily available video editing effect (layering) that you can achieve with pretty cheap (or even free) video editing software.
Two, the clothes of this person certainly don’t look very 1940s.
Note the video date is 1-2-13, it was uploaded 2-3-13. Enough time to edit, eh?
Knowing what we know about hoaxing videos, this seems like a weak effort. No film evidence can be trusted these days.
Here’s the video, what do you think?
