Hi all.
Get a load of this…

Watch your screen closely with sound on.

This is a car advert from somewhere. When they finished filming the ad the people who made it noticed something moving along the side of the car, like a ghostly white mist.

The ad was never put on TV because the unexplained ghostly phenomenon frightened the production team out of their wits. Watch it very closely and listen to the sound. About halfway look and you will see the white mist crossing in front of the car then following it along the road.

!!!!!! Spooky Stuff !!!!!!

Regards.
Sharp.

hahaha luckily I already saw this and recognized it at the beginning, so the thing didn't creep me out as much as it did when I first saw that. I never heard the story you told though, I just thought it looked creepy

Yeah.. I knew what this was before I finished reading your description. Kinda old. Especially since the gimmick has been used so many times I expect it whenever anyone shows me anything online.

What's wrong with this picture? Stare at it for about a minute... Make sure your sound is up LOUD.

Look at this happy animation! Watch it for about a minute... Make sure your sound is up LOUD.

You get the idea.

Actually thats not a car advert. It's an advert for a drink.

And this is actually on german TV, seen it a couple of times. smile

i think the whole idea of saying its a car advert is to fool the person about to view the ad.

that really freaked me out.

regardless of how old the gimmick is i still think its effective, cos as a 1st time viewer it works. the fun now is showing others and freaking them out too.

Hmmm...it war freaky, but not as bad as "GHOST" and that one movie from somebody in this community (just a picture of and empty room for a minute, ad then suddenly a monster jumps in) <---THAT WAS SCARY.

Anyways, yip Sollthat is right, its and advert for a new coffee drink in can wink.
I havent seen this on TV before, where did you see this Sollthar.

Cheers,
