The Haunted Swing - Halloween Prank?

So who's seen this youtube vid that's had 32K views in two days?

If this is a Halloween Prank, it's a damned good one- elaborately planned and well executed.

If you think you've got it figured out, read the poster's comments and the viewers comments.

I for one am stumped...

good call, i just saw that as well... this seems to have just hit the international press in the last 24-48 hours, so i'm sure there will be more of these "explanation vids" coming out...

i'm familiar with the concept of resonance in general, it just seems VERY unlikely to me that one swing could be affected to such a degree while the other two are completely unaffected.

in addition, this explanation does not explain the fact that the clothes, hair etc of the 50+ people in the first video seem to show slight to no signs of being wind-blown while the swing is going nuts.

Anybody else think the video has been edited?

At 30 seconds you can see what appears to be foot prints.

Me thinks the video has been messed with, and someone was giving a good push to the swing.

^That could very well be.


I'm sure there's a rational explanation to this I just don't know what it is.

If there are ghosts...I want the girl ghost from Ghostbusters that comes into Ray's bedroom and unzips his pants and....and....

Yeah. That would be a sweet ghost.

Sure. Next thing, the ghost of that poor British girl that got kidnapped in Argentina will be seen haunting it.

The footprints around the 30 second mark are VERY obvious...
