In the YouTube video — which was shot in Indonesia and also allegedly took place on September 11, 2011, yet is surfacing now — a vaguely humanoid number seems come fall straight down native the appropriate side of the screen, then instantly jump (or fly) far at one angle. Around six secs later, four numbers (presumably mall security guards) rush from the left side of the screen to the area whereby the number landed. The bright number is just onscreen for around a second, and though it"s quick, it is unmistakably something paranormal — unless, of course, it"s entirely faked.

The video clip contains numerous dead giveaways the a hoax, including the reality that the amateur animator failed come account because that the mall"s reflective floor. Light sources close to the peak of the framework are plainly reflected in the polished, semi-glossy floor (which appears to it is in painted and sealed concrete), though when the brightly luminous figure drops to the floor, its irradiate does not show up in the foreground on the appropriate of the scene, where its reflect light have to be.

"This "creature" is very bright and also is lighting increase the area about it. Given the brightness that we can see, the object would light increase the whole area — not just the tiny radius we are seeing," Derek Serra, a Hollywood visual results artist that studied the video, called Life"s little Mysteries."Also, look at the irradiate hitting the building behind it: offered its movement, we would check out high comparison shadows native the home window frame and also tree move throughout the inside of the structure as the irradiate moves around, but those shadows areconspicuously absent."

Several commenters ~ above YouTube suspected that the hoax video was a public stunt or viral video clip promotion because that an upcoming film, though it seems unlikely offered the amateur quality of the work. Serra agreed. "I don"t know any type of professional results artists that would desire to take credit transaction for that."
