This is an intriguing video that apparently never aired. See if you can spot the image by the car that is supposed to be a ghost.

Actually Monique brought this up some time ago. I find that if I look really closely when the car goes behing the the trees I can definitely see it. I had to look several times... that is strange. I don't know.

LOL.. I showed this to my wife without warning her, and she practically had a heart attack.

Hmmm. This kind of 'evidence' is always so tantalising, yet proves nothing. Having said that, I must admit feeling a little unsettled by the alleged phantom.

Would like to comment further, but have laundry to do.

In order to better see the ghost, you should lean in close to the screen and turn the volume up.

The link appears to be dead :confused:

I mean, the link to the actual video.

You're right, TA! I could have sworn I detected some EVP phenomena. If you turn up the volume really high, you can hear a very faint whisper. It sounds like "I buried Paul."

Ok, I saw it and now I have to seriously reconsider my stance as a skeptic.

I have watched it several times now and am less and less convinced of its authenticity. If you watch the 'apparition' closely, it somehow has a manufactured quality to it, almost too much like an undergraduate notion of a ghoul. Did anyone else sense this?

I'm not sure what I saw. Maybe I was looking at the wrong thing because what I thought I saw appeared to be more in front of the car than off to the side. The image did appear vaguely human, but, not as 'ghostly' as I expected. Perhaps it was just a lens reflection or odd shadow. The words were very indistinct. When I tweaked the bass, it sounded like 'Iberia mall', which may have just been a plug for the dealership.

Got to give up drinking so much coffee :/

EDIT: The evidence is quite compelling if you look hard enough, still a little skeptical but I do not have any speakers on my system so its hard to tell.

That is quite the shame, since the audio component is half the experience.

You guys might have mentioned the bloody thing at the end...you have no idea how much I just freaked out...I think that took a couple of years off my life.

I'm still trying to figure out if you guys are being sarcastic throughout the entire thread...and there was never any apparation at the beginning of the clip.
