For years mellowb1rd has vehemently claimed that he is posting "real" paranormal footage, I'm sure many of you are familiar with his videos.

I have my own opinion about this, which I'll keep to myself. But what do you guys think about his latest video?

Has he debunked himself, or could this be genuine?

Does this make a mockery of the work we paranormal investigators are doing? Does it validate our work?


I'm just going to answer the questions..

What do I think about his latest video? His most ambitious work yet. Unfortunately, also his biggest screw up.
I never thought he was genuine in the first place, so this didn't debunk anything for me.. Just another entertainment. And like most paranormal entertainment- it was pretty fun at first, then as he needed to keep stretching it, the show got lamer.
Does it make a mockery? Probably not any more or less than other hoax videos, or movies like Paranormal Activity.
Does it validate? I don't think so. But I think it can be a valuable tool. If a person is seriously hunting, they should indeed be up to date on the various kinds of ways people can do hoaxing now a days.

Where is his confession? Link please.

A lot of drama has happened and there was a guy who pretended to be him with a simular name and said he lied.



clear to note its the same guy, same kitchen, etc.  really well done set of vids he did, I think more people were dissappointed that he gave it up. LOL.  But apparently people began to pick out the line in some of his previous vids...even though he was digitally erasing them to the best of his ability.  they were fun to originally watch.

Sadly Mellow proved himself to be a fake in this video. Not only is it making a mockery of folks working in the paranormal field, It's a slap in the face to anyone who has ever experienced the paranormal. It's hard enough as it is to try to tell others about your experiences without being mocked without hoaxers like him.

Totally agree, and if you have legitimate evidence, like a class A EVP because of junk like this all over the internet the paranormal is never taken seriously. It's ashame that this has become just another method to get your fifteen minutes of fame.

That is not a confession. What he said he was going to use methods out there to replicate his "paranormal" and upload to see what people say.

It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route and find out what really happened.

I noticed that also, he was trying to " prove " he is not faking anything....

He proved that he is a above average video editor, and I am sure he did not use all of his editing ability for these videos :)

This poltergeist activity video was FAKED. See THIS link for more information. I made this "Poltergeist" video, to explore some of the techniques I've been reading about on the comments pages of paranormal videos as to how the activity could be staged. This is one of two such poltergeist videos that I made. Here is the other: There still seems to be some confusion about all this. Just READ the descriptions and you won't be confused.

I removed the links. Yeah... not to mention he moved onto the 2nd chair far too quickly in comparison to what I have seen in other, erm..., "unconfirmed" videos of poltergeist activities.

There a few ways to prove or disprove his paranormal nonsense.

1. Get multiple LIVE webcams set up. Downfall is he can easily subsitute live video with prerecorded footage.
2. Get some real researchers in, not self proclaimed paranormal experts!
3. Get Sakari to stay at this guy house for a month.

It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route and find out what really happened.

EVP can be easily be tampered with or as my previous experiements had shown, Voice recorders can pick up very faint sounds or from long distances. People also with sound edits, distord the original sound either intentionally or unintentionally.

I have a problem with this type of thing. Not only is that type of footage easily faked, the fact that it is on video makes it even more suspicious to me. I mean, when it is on video that means that the person shooting it is controlling the viewer Point of View and can exclude things that they don't want you to see. When I see a video of a chair floating and the chair is perfectly framed right in the middle of the cameras field of view and in perfect focus, that makes me suspicious.

That said, I don't see anything immediately that disproves that video. I'm just saying that there is reason to suspect it.

This is serious cgi. This kitchen has starred in a few videos on YouTube.
