'Solar Armor' freezes man in Nevada Desert, 1874
Rare planetary alignment decreases gravity, 1976

Eerie Ghost Video
Here's what the setup to this little piece of video says:
Supposedly this is a car commercial that never aired. I'm thinking that it is more probably a very good student project using Computer Graphics. About 2 seconds into the "commercial" notice something moving along the side of the car, like a ghostly white mist that looks humanish.
All I'm going to add is that this really, really got me.
Update: Here's another link to the movie, in case the one above is down.

That was horrible! I've been reading lotsa ghost stories before that and seriously thought that I'd see some 'ghostly mist' or something intangible. I even leaned towards the monitor thinking that I must've missed something before that damn thing popped up, and I actually screamed so loud my housemates tried to break into my room. They thought something happened to me. It was 12am too.

This is definitely an ad for an energy drink, the premise being that the drink will give you a jolt of energy much like the jolt you got from the ghost in the commercial.

Clever.

was this ever proved to be real or done by computer graphics?

I think it's a safe bet to say that it's not real.

OMFG!!! You know you really shouldn't watch that unless you want to be scared. And don't drink while doing it. I spilt coke all over myself! And what's more, I leaned in close, thinkin I musta missed something, volume at FULL (only my brother was home, and he was locked up in his room) and then the THING jumped out at me!!!! I screamed so hard my brother actually asked what was wrong. I was so embarrased I fell for it that I just told him it was a spider! It really scared the heck outta me...my friend said she wouldn't scream when I told her about it, and went on about how she watched Freddy Kruger, Nightmare on Elm Street, etc. Then she screamed. Hard.

You know whats funny, i saw that for the first time today, my bud sent me an email with the link, and i shit myself at first and then i died laughing, and its soooo funny that other people said the same thing. I thought i was the only one who started laughing after, i couldnt stop. it was perfectly times, with a perfect view, the car is far, your foccused, it disappears behind the bush, your waiting for it, and he pops up right where your looking, out of focus too, fuckin genius, i think the fact that it was written in german may have added to the funnyness of it, but i shit 1st anyways

Didn't have a ghost of a chance. I must try to keep your museum a secret to my victims. They already know I'm an ass however.

Posted by Chess  on  Mon Nov 22, 2004  at  04:11 PM
Oh i did get to see it, it made me jump but then i started laughing! lol, its good! :D
Posted by Ches  on  Mon Nov 22, 2004  at  04:22 PM
Geez. So I'm thinking that since I know what's going to happen, it would be okay to watch it again - just to see how it worked.

And I jumped again...

this commercial was aired on german tv last summer. i had fallen asleep in front of the telly and got woken up by that scream in dolby surround. no need to buy the canned coffee, the ad ist far more effective. shock

Posted by BLAH  on  Fri Dec 10, 2004  at  06:48 AM
wink That is the most funniest thing I've ever seen.
First time I saw it I screamed so hard then laughed so much I cried; just thinking about it makes me laugh out loud...

OK, i must ask. What's with all the people who saw this in school?? Is the video suppose to be teaching you something?? Why would a teacher show this to his/her class, and what grade are you all in where it's being shown?

You dirty mother fuckers. I'm deaf in my left ear now. Alaysha say thanks. And Dawn didn't fall for it.

Hey! Where`s the humanish thing? And what`s that zumbi doing into the commercial anyway?
Posted by OR  on  Fri Dec 17, 2004  at  04:51 AM
It's probably just a reflection in the camera lens.
Or the planet Venus.
