If you watch the raw video closely you will see that there is a flash right before the glass starts to move and hits the floor. It is almost as if the room momentarily lightened and then the thing crashed.


BTW, don't focus on the glass, focus at the top ov the video, above the cash register and you will see what I mean.

this seems legit. spring loaded this, fishing line that, compressed air. jesus, some of this these explanations are so elaborate and to me and are more of a stretch or more complicated than the simple existence of ghosts. i realize a lot of people fake videos like this and it's hard to know what's for real and what isn't. it's good to be skeptical but, i bet when they review the security footage from the entire day it just shows the clerk walking around like normal and doing her job. not setting up some nonsense to knock over a glass so her security camera will catch it so she can up her antique sales.

if you watch the clerk her actions seem to indicate that she is legitimately disturbed by what happened. she is going back and forth from the front to the back. pacing around not knowing what to make of what she probably just heard. when she sees the broken glass she covers her mouth as if saying to herself oh, my god. she is shocked. she even looks at her watch to see what time it is because she is saying to herself i need to look at the security footage and see what the hell really happened here.

it does seem like something was whisping around the store right before the glass fell. realizing that this is a store front with glass windows there are obviously going to be passing cars and the like. but, for some reason i get the impression that there is actually something in the store that you can get a brief glimpse of it's movement before the glass is pushed off of the counter.

that being said, i don't think it's impossible for this to have been faked. but, my general impression and my feelings on the video are that it is legit. i would love to see the results of a proper investigation into this. not someone just trying to recreate it. because yeah, im sure you COULD recreate this using whatever method you chose. but, i'm still willing to bet that they could go through the security footage all day and not find anything incriminating in regards to the clerk.

If this was truly paranormal for a very, very old building we would see more of these events happen at the store. This is the first one EVER which makes it suspicious to me. I think this is just another way to increase business awareness and nothing more.

My two cents.

I find the clerks reaction more interesting than what actually happened, conveniently walks away, a supposed heavy glass tray slides across the counter and smashes on the floor. That must have been pretty loud, and she does not hear it!! does not come back and look, eventually wanders back, just about notices the glass on the floor and then plugs in her mobile phone.

What?

I watched it twice. She walked away from the counter and into the next room, off camera. Then the thing moves/crashes. She came back in, looked around, saw no one. Then she pointed it out to the customers who came in later...
she was obviously shook up. I didn't see her plugging in a mobile. ???

Well, I thought it was pretty impressive, too - and I do believe in ghosts.

It's people like James Randi who will come up with ANYTHING other than ghosts, and he's - in my opinion - deliberately being a jerk about it.

IIrc, the owner said they DO have weird stuff going on - in the news clip.

I'll watch it again, though - I'd only just got up and was drinking me tea, ya know.

ETA: Yep, he said there is paranormal stuff going on there, like people having their shoulder pulled.
Even the clerk said she's felt a presence.

Sorry - I think this one is legit.

Where did you come up with the idea it was the "first one EVER"?

I just did a google for Gilford NH - there are lots of haunted places there. This makes sense to me because it was the original New England - New England has been occupied by Europeans/English for over 400 years.

Didn't look that thick to me, the shards look thin .. still.. there's plenty of ways to do that with fishing line even if it was heavy.. fishing line is made to be strong =)

Its like a car drove past with its lights on, the flash in slow moves across the back room.

I am all with those saying they want some free marketing for their store. It was a glass top that broke and it was caught on store video camera right in front of the camera. Not positive about this place, but I can't see them going back through the video to find out what happened if nothing was missing. Most would chalk this up to "must have just fallen off the counter" type of incident. The fact that they decided to go back through the security footage and send it in for news stories and ghost hunters tells me this is a fake done for marketing purposes.

so someone experiences an event that they think has paranormal origins, they know it happened in a room where there was a security camera and because they go, copy the footage and send it to be investigated by ghost hunters that must mean it was done for store publicity? what sense does that make? so if they just let it be and did nothing about it that would make the story more legitimate than investigating it?

those New Hampshire county stores, so greedy for sales! lol

I agree. It's no different than when there's an AMA on here, and people say, "He's just here to sell his book."

Well, so? If he's got something worth saying, there's nothing wrong with bringing these things to the public, I don't think.

yeah, i agree, you can't win either way. people have different reasons for making things public and trying to get things out there. the problem is that the internet today is so saturated with hoaxes and pranks that people don't believe anything anymore even if it is legitimate, which is sad. it's good to be skeptical, but not to a fault. but, for me i've personally had real ghost experiences so i know in my heart that this stuff exists out there. and if this were to happy to me in a place where i worked i would do the same thing. get a copy of the security footage and send that # out to as many people as i could. either way it shouldnt be too hard to prove whether it's real or faked. also i lived in new england for a long time and thats where i had a couple of my experiences. in my opinion its one of the most haunted areas in the US. just so much history there...

Sure. Unless they had a higher end digital system that allowed them to quickly input the time frame they thought it occurred and only have to view a few minutes of footage then they sat there with multiple hours of video footage to go through. Most camera recording tech, especially in small stores, is made to loop and record over itself. It is pulled if a robbery or something of the like occurs and a new DVD or whatever media is put in to record while they review the initial footage. Being that this is a tiny shop I would doubt they have any high end digital recording equipment here though I could be wrong.

I would not think that a glass breaking with nothing being missing would be any cause for someone to go through footage to see what happened. Then again, they may have nothing better to do. This leads me to believe it was planned, executed, and they pulled the video in order to get some publicity from their stunt.

Would you say the ghost did it is a more logical possibility?

Ive had a similar experience.

It was 12 oclock in my wales cottage (hundreds of years old) while everyone else was sound asleep, pitch black in a valley heavy heavy cloud, the kind of dark you arnt sure if your eyes are even open, dark.

I hear a huge crash, i whisper to my sister in the bed next to me if she was awake, she didnt reply, so i thought i must have been my imagination. Well ii had a flashlight right next to me and i go down stairs to the kitchen, hit the lights and there is a metal tray right in the center of the floor that was plated on the rear stove after i washed it up earlier that day.

There was no pets, all doors and windows locked, so breezes or rodent issues. So i put it back and went to bed confused.

To this day i have no idea how it happened. it couldnt have been a prank as the only other people in the house would have had to walk past me and i would have seen a light, since it was so completely dark. Oh also my closest neighbor is half a mile away and there are not teenagers or kids for miles.

i would say that if this clerk has had previous experiences in the store than it gives her or whoever perfect reason to go through the footage and pull the event for further review. I do think it's more far fetched for whoever to plan some elaborate prank and submit the footage to be scrutinized only for it to come out later that is indeed faked. that would have the opposite effect on the store.
