Every chronically truant 16-year-old wishes they had a legitimate reason to avoid school. But the pupils of one secondary school in Ireland have been confronted with a compelling reason to throw their homework in the trash: a ghost is rampaging through the halls of their school late at night, and well, it seems pissed.
Deerpark CBS, the school in Cork, Ireland, obtained footage from its security cameras at 3am on the night of October 1. The video, which has already racked up over half a million views on YouTube, shows what appears to be an invisible specter having a teenage temper tantrum in the hallway. It slams a door, shakes up lockers, and kicks over a wet floor sign, much like the deranged sprit of a student who's doomed to spend eternity repeating the same math class.
Now, the video is actually pretty frightening, but it goes without saying that this could easily be an elaborate ruse. While the school maintains that the strange occurrence happened organically and unprompted, it remains a possibility that it may simply be the product of a clever student's final video project. Still, Cork CBS is parroting the video on Facebook as a rarefied ghost sighting, as opposed to a craven grab at viral fame.
