Freaky Ghost Video

Freaky Ghost Video

We were just browsing around YouTube, as we do from time to time, when we came across something with the following description "This picture was taken in 2000 in London. The building was abandoned and there was nothing in the window but a mysterious mist at the time of the photo. What do YOU think it is?"

We were expecting one of those 'look really close and then we'll freak you out with a truly scary picture of a screaming mad woman when you least expect it' things, or just a crappy viral ad for the London Dungeon but actually what we saw when we clicked on that little arrow, actually scared us a little bit... only a little bit mind.

The YouTube page doesn't tell us what the building is or any other details (and neither does the related blog) so if anyone recognises it then let us know.

OR, it could be a picture of someone standing in a window.

Whoah. Some people have really overactive imaginations. That could be any kind of thing. It's quite a blurry photo. Really. Does he honestly expect us to think that's a ghost. Bollocks.

Spooky - It's vanished!

It could be one of the 'fake' houses built as steam vents for the cut-and-cover Underground lines (eg. Circle line). They usually do have curtains though. The way to tell them from real houses is the lack of letter slots or mailboxes.

Why there would be mist in it in summer 2000 is anyone's guess but engineering work or something could account for it, I guess.
