Apparently, the red figurine is a Thai baby spirit called a Kumantong.

The details of creating one are ghastly. An unborn fetus has to be surgically removed from a mom's womb then roasted until dry as some incantations are recited before the ritual is completed. After that, it is painted with lacquer and amulets are worn around it.

The Kumantong is sought after as it is believed to bring luck and fortune to the owner, if properly revered. But it may turn evil and create mischief if not properly handled.

In this video, the drinks are offering to the baby ghost, and you can clearly see the drinks moving up and down with no apparent reason except maybe for the paranormal...

What do you think guys? Real or hoax?

I only had to watch 15 seconds to work it out.

Its a bottle of cultured milk containing yeast ... the yeast ferments the milk generating carbon dioxide gas that forces the liquid up the straw through gas pressure.
The gas eventually finds a way to escape causing the liquid to fall back down the straw.

Then the carbon dioxide gas pressure builds up again ... forcing the liquid up the straw again.

Rinse and repeat .....

Not a hoax, just gas created in the bottle which creates the liquid to rise up ,or down (look at bubbles on top of bottle!

Can do the same thing with bicarbonate of soda and vinegar too to have roughly the same effect.. (cheap fire extiguisher and makes for a great artificial volcano mixed with red food colouring for the kids!)

What are you mocking?

Fermentation is the way you start the process of creating spirits.

Effectively, that was baby spirits

Hahahaha ... what a great point ... never thought of that.

In that case, 3 cheers for "baby spirits"


Let me just pour myself a shot of whiskey (or should that be Bailey's Irish Cream ? ) and drink to "baby spirits"

I would be more concerned for the mental health of the person who removes a fetus from a womb to sell as an ornament.

Not to mention the people who buy it..

I think the whole ethical question can be debated in general, but who are we to question the cultures of other people, when we are incapable of getting our own things sorted out first?

Reading more on the wikipedia page for Kumantong:

Some Kuman effigies will be soaked in Nam Man Prai,Buddha Magic Thai Mystical Ezine, 2010, Issue 2(E-Magazine), Littlewood, Spencer [1] which has extract of a dead child or a person who died in violent circumstances or an unnatural death. This is much less common now, because this practice is now illegal if using fat from human babies for the consecrating oil. There are however still some authentically made amulets appearing. Some years ago a famous monk was thrown out of the Buddhist Sangha for roasting a baby. He was convicted, but later continued to make magic as a layperson after his release. The practice of creating Necromantic effigies of a Kuman Tong comes from age old tradition in Siam. Thai folk have made Bucha to Animistic spirits and ghosts since time immemorial. The original Kuman Tong came from children who died whilst still in their mothers womb. The Magic makers would take these stillborn babies and adopt them as their children.

Wikipedia: Kumantong

Really?
Extract of a dead person?
Fat from human babies for the consecrating oil?
Geez....

On May 18, 2012 a 28 year-old British citizen of Taiwanese origin, Chow Hok Kuen, was arrested in a Bangkok hotel room with six male fetuses that had be roasted and covered in gold. Police reported that Kuen intended to sell the fetuses in Tawain for about 6,300 USD each.

And it still goes on.
Whacky people.

Get a bottle, stick a straw in it, blow in the straw and sit back in wonderment and amazement as the liquid within rises!

Welcome to science.

The good stuff, well expensive stuff. The stuff I used to make didn't need labels. You could tell what it was by the way it ate through the glasses.

Yes, but remember, and as the poster above proves, these people are mostly incapable of grokking human sciences. It's the voodoo that you do that they dig, ya know.

A place that still drink the bile of living creatures and eat their dried dongers, for sexual prowess and virility!

Now buy my painted foetus or I'll set the fermenting vampire ghosts on ya.

I am glad I am not the only one who thought along those lines. How utterly disturbing......
