Electrician discovers Ouija board stuffed inside wall of client's house

A video clip showing the moment the spirit communication board was found has since gone viral on TikTok.
A staple of horror movies, paranormal investigations and mediumship sessions, the Ouija board is typically operated by having participants place a finger on a planchette which then moves between the printed letters and words to spell out a message from beyond the grave.

While many dismiss them as supernatural claptrap, others remain convinced that they are the real deal - even warning people against their use in fear of summoning something 'unnatural'.

For some, such fears are so genuine that they dare not touch or even set eyes upon one.

Such was the concern of an apprentice electrician recently when he discovered a thin piece of wood stuffed between two walls while doing work in a client's house.

In a video clip he recorded of the incident, he can be seen flipping over the board to discover that it was in fact a Ouija board that someone had hidden in the wall for reasons unknown.
His understandable reaction was to immediately return it to where he found it.

"Nope, back in the wall," he said firmly. "Never to be seen."

What could have prompted the house's owner (or perhaps former owner) to hide the board there ?

We will probably never know.

Why would he stuff it back in the wall? Shouldn't he have asked the home owner?

I don’t understand why this would go viral. It looked like the guy is just laying on the floor relaxing, he pulls the board out, then puts it back.  What’s the big deal?

Sensationalism. Some people are drawn to it like a moth to a flame. Everyone is supposed to infer that there’s some unknown evil supernatural mystery about why it ended up where it was.

Well, people can believe whatever they want about these boards, but they don’t have magical powers to put themselves into a wall.  The electrician found a board someone had placed inside of the wall, during the last construction project, maybe thirty years ago.  Whichever person placed it there in the first place obviously wanted to get rid of it, but many people are superstitious about how to dispose of these things, thinking they will be haunted if they dispose of it improperly.
