NEW ORLEANS– A street camera captured what some viewers dubbed a “giant ghost” jaywalking in the streets of New Orleans.
The video was reportedly sent to YouTube user Mister Enigma last week by Jackson, a viewer from the city who realized the anomaly on an EarthCam live stream. The camera is located on Bourbon street, the oldest neighborhood in New Orleans, extending thirteen blocks from Canal Street to Esplanade Avenue and flooded with bars and strip clubs. It is not clear when the oddity originally took place.
“As you can see here, the giant figure appears walking across the street before fading out seconds later,” Mister Enigma said.
At first, it looks like the strange occurrence could have been easily doctored, but according to the YouTuber, two people walking nearby appear to notice the “shadow-like being”.
“The older gentleman notices it and alerts his friend,” he explains.
“Seconds later,” he says, “the rest of the crowd are glued into what has just happened.”
But could it be that they are simply a group tourists looking at some of the most famous Mardi Grass spots in “The Big Easy”?
Viewers have their own theories about the “entity”.
“A shadow figure, rather common in the certain locations with deep history,” says YouTube user VTSRIK.
Bourbon street was spared by hurricane Katrina in 2005 and left mostly intact due to its high ground location.
“I don’t know what to make of this, but it sure as hell looks creepy. Could these things be ghosts? Imprints of a once life lived….or maybe even interdimensional beings that dwell very closely to our own existence?” Mister Enigma said.
Coincidentally, the Espanola police in New Mexico released similar footage a day prior to the New Orleans’ video release date.
