The Ghost & The Pole Dancer (Pics/Video)
We all have a certain ideal setting that comes to mind when we talk about ghosts, be it an old creepy house on a stormy night, a cemetery or a abandoned asylum.
However they always say truth is much stranger then fiction so perhaps we should not be surprised when a story arises about a haunted pole dancing studio, complete with both video and photographic evidence.
The Gypsy Rose Exotic Studio in Boston is owned by Wendy Reardon, who claims that spirits have come to see her students dance around a pole in skimpy attire. Since then, her videos and pics of the mysterious orbs have made the rounds on television, being featured on both Montel Williams and Maury Povich.
All of this hoopla over the apparitions started after Reardon informed the Boston Herald that she would be telling her story to the paranormal TV show My Ghost Story.
Readrdon states that although the ghost might be a bit cheeky, they appear in the studio all the time:
“I’ve got hundreds of clips of whatever they are and it’s not just me, they dance and swirl around my students too. Lots of clients that have taken video in my studio at their bachelorette or birthday parties or even classes, and get some pretty neat footage of them.”
When asked for an explanation as to why the ghostly orbs have decided to visit her dance studio, Reardon claims that it is just the good vibes anybody might get when watching scantily clad women pole dance:
“I think it’s the positive energy in the studio that attracts them, well, that and watching sexy women pole dancing. Buncha pervs!”
Perverted ghosts or no, I would be quick to explain this away as bugs and/or dust lit up by the various lighting and effects we see in the videos. These kinds of photos have been around for ages and show how something perfectly normal can be turned into the paranormal in a photo or a video with a little imagination.
In this first video, it looks as though it could even just be a reflection of light, as the light seems to change size as it goes across the wall in the same manner that a flashlight’s beam might if you stood in one place and swept the light across the walls and ceiling of the room (I also have to applaud Reardon’s musical choice here, Thriller is quite appropriate):
At the end of the above video and in this one below, it seems as though the orb flies right towards the camera and although this makes her story a bit more convincing, my eyes tell me that the flight pattern looks quite similar to a bug:
The picture on the right of this text is a screen capture from the You Tube video above as the orb moves directly in front of the camera. To my eyes, it looks like the bottom half would be the body of the flying insect while the more transparent top portion of the object would be the wings.
Although I can make no claim to really KNOWING that these are bugs or dust rather then spirit orbs, I can make a good guess that the objects pictured here are most likely more mundane then extraordinary.
What do you guys think? Are these ghostly perverts looking to see one last glimpse of human flesh? Dust? Or bugs? Let us know in the comments below.
