I realize this piece of footage is does not have anything to do with the state of Oklahoma but it is has hit over a million views over the past few days on youtube. There is “ruckus” about this video and it has paranormal people talking. But why?
According to the shop owner of this IGA in Brompton, Australia he was told about the ghost that resides within the supermarket. They have pinpointed the ghost as well. Apparently a local boxer was gunned down outside while using the telephone. The bullet hole is still there and everything.
I do not see a lot of reports coming out of Australia when it comes to ghosts and claims of the unknown so I decided to take a better look and offer my two-cents on what could have possibly happened. Was it a ghost? If you want to believe that it is, that’s entirely up to you. But I personally think it was a lazy employee that didn’t want to take the time to return the haunted Fruit Roll-Ups to their rightful home.
Here is the first release of the story on a Good Morning Sunrise type of show.
You can hear some sarcasm (disbelief) by a couple of the hosts. I for one found it rather amusing that this clip made it as far as it did within the media.
Here is a more exclusive clip where it gives a bit more detail about the chewy event.
It seems the shop owner is pretty much convinced that a “ghost” did do this. What baffles my mind is the fact that he would rather admit he has a ghost compared to having imperfect stock clerks. When I was a teenager I worked at a local grocery store for a summer. I will admit that I did put items behind items that belong on other isles. I was too lazy to take them back to where they belonged. So, finding a box of haircolor behind the canned beets was not an uncommon thing. Oh, I wasn’t the only one that did things like this. We were all teens and we all wanted to have things done so we could get off work.
Notice in the video that the Fruit Roll-Ups belonged on the next isle over. Pay close attention as the store owner shows where the supernatural treats came flying from. It is a shelf full of what appears to me to be egg noodles/pasta of some sort? The noodles are lying there, all shiny, slick and plastic like. Is it possible that the roll-ups were tucked away behind the noodles? One swift movement of the air conditioning or even a loud non-paranormal noise could have made the roll ups finally slide from the noodle shelf? This may be a big giant theory/explanation but it’s better than a big bad boxer flicking Fruit Roll-Ups to get attention. I would hope that if he made a choice to use all that energy to make a paranormal statement that he would have at least used a more masculine product? Maybe not?
I personally do not think this story is paranormal at all. Closed Circuit Video that is motion detected can come on and record if there is a loud bang (from outside) or if an air-conditioning unit kicks on abruptly. There was no other movement recorded on the footage either. I would like to see this store produce more videos like this mainly because they are already convinced it’s haunted.
Have you ever been in a retail store and something just flew off the shelf? I have. It’s happened to me many times. I have even had strangers watch an item fall, we look at each other and telepathically acknowledge that “Yeah, it just flew off the shelf, glad you got to see it with me.” Was it a ghost? Probably not, but it was strange enough to instantly blow off for the sake of not being a bit paranoid. Over the years I have received a large number of emails about the retail area of where the old Belle Isle Power plant once was. Many people claim that some retail shops and restaurants are haunted. There are many reports on the internet about personal ghostly encounters taking place while people were getting great deals on a new pair of jeans or shopping for groceries.
How do you feel about the Supermarket Ghost footage that is getting nationwide attention? Ghost or lazy stocking skills? What do you think?
