Woman mysteriously disappears on live television
First shown on Monday, the video went viral during the week and was reposted by numerous media outlets. The web community put their heads together in an effort to solve the puzzling event. Posted on Imgur, the video managed to collect over 9 million views and had garnered nearly 1,500 comments on Reddit by the weekend.
Whereas many remain puzzled, some believe they have found clues solid enough to unravel the mysterious disappearance.
The most popular comments say another female obscured the girl as they both move out of shot.
“That’s some serious precision, but you can barely see her disappear behind the other girl, almost unnoticeable,” CygniGlide user writes on Imgur.
Many cling to the idea, saying the woman didn’t disappear without a trace: her shadow can be seen on the floor, and her head and hair are just noticeable when the footage is examined frame by frame.
Other users, however, seem more eager to seek supernatural explanations, jokingly (or not) referring to the Matrix, X-files or the magic world of Harry Potter.
“THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE,” Imgur user palaeastur wants to believe.
“Performing magic in the presence of muggles, the ministry will hear about this!” comments zee44.
“The Matrix is broken again,” DontcallmeLen says.
