The video “Extremely Scary Ghost Elevator Prank” has gained over 14 million views in just two days.
It features a trick of sorts where people in Brazil go into this elevator that is, unknown to the rider, fixed to go nowhere. While they’re in it, lights flicker, then go out, leaving the interior dark just long enough for a small girl to crawl into the space and stand there with her doll. She looks freaky.
But even with that, you’d think people would not be afraid of her, or realize that the elevator wasn’t moving. Not true.
