check out the ghost in this commercial


This is a car commercial from Great Britain.  When they finished filming, the editor noticed something moving along the side of the car.  It looked like a ghostly white mist.  Later, they found out that someone was killed a year earlier in that exact same spot.  The commercial never ran on TV.  To see the apparition, watch the front end of the car as it clears the trees.  Be sure to put your face close to the screen and watch intently.

More scary stuff.
