'Gong Goi' ghost video goes viral in Thailand


Posted on Saturday, 6 October, 2018 | Comment icon 21 comments

What is this thing ? Image Credit: Facebook / Chantha Sitouluk
Eerie footage of a one-legged ghost of Thai mythology has recently been viewed over 3.5 million times.
In Thailand, the 'Gong Goi' is a mythological child-sized spirit that lives in the woods.

It is said to appear as roughly humanoid but with a single, central leg on which it hops around. It has long dark hair and earns its name from its tendency to scream 'Gong Goi! Gong Goi!'

This latest viral video, which was uploaded on to Facebook last week by Chantha Sitouluk, allegedly shows the elusive specter hopping along the side of a road while illuminated by the lights of a car.

But is this really evidence of the legendary Gong Goi or is something else going on ?

While a fair number of viewers in Thailand seem convinced by the footage, it certainly seems possible that what the video actually shows is someone dressed up as the ghost as part of a prank.

You can check out the clip for yourself below.

I don`t know how you came to the conclusion that i said it was someone in a costume as all i said is that i think it could be faked and that i thought it was a puppet operated by someone hiding in the reeds..if they had it on a pole this could be achieved by moving along and bobbing it up and down and i`ve actually watched it many more times and i believe this is very possible and i can see reeds moving as the so called ghost moves along..I think it`s a hoax not an apparition.

I originally thought it was a Chinese Pond Heron that had been spooked by the car headlights whilst possibly fishing in some unseen water or something. Seemed to 'hop' like a bird anyway and iirc they have long black 'hair' going down their backs.

The white shape actually looks like the old style wooden crutches you used to get when you broke a leg or ankle or whatever. Could it be a person using a crutch?  The unseen terrain may account for the unusual movement.

The grass is taller than the black object, so I would guess it is a black crow just hopping about with some discarded tissue for her nest.  Although it could be this guy:   Thailand song contest - Skip to 1:20 for the big climax
