Eerie Ghost Video

Here's what the setup to this little piece of video says:
Supposedly this is a car commercial that never aired. I'm thinking that it is more probably a very good student project using Computer Graphics. About 2 seconds into the "commercial" notice something moving along the side of the car, like a ghostly white mist that looks humanish.
All I'm going to add is that this really, really got me.
Update: Here's another link to the movie, in case the one above is down.

I can see how it can be convincing! If you look closely enough there's a slight reflection...

That was on Tarrant on TV yesterday, I was scared for five seconds and then I burst into a fit of laughter.

As I need a plug in to see this, and I'm too lazy to download it, what happens in the video? It isn't that video where something jumps out at you when it ends, is it? They've been talking about that on Snopes for a while; the commercial where a zombie runs at the screen after a car goes down a road was for a German energy drink.

This is a different commercial, right?

Reminds me of that scene from "Jaws" where the head suddenly appeared out of the hole in the bottom of the boat.

This movie is much more well done than another movie where they made you stare at a scene for a while and then flashed a screaming face a year or two ago. As a matter of fact, the other one is a wimp, a pushover, and a nerd and should be thrown in a trash can and rolled down a hill. Or maybe stuffed in his locker.

I saw that a few weeks ago on The original site that they got it from has changed the link so that it takes you to her post board first.

And P.S. I didn't even have the volume on and I almost fell out of my desk chair. I was at work and got a few funny little looks.

Ho-ly crap!! I'm still shaking, and I didn't even have my speakers on! I bet I'm real lucky I didn't!

I've seen a couple of things like this, but the setup and execution of this one are by far the best.
Scared the crap out of me for a few seconds, then I was laughing until tears ran out my eyes.
I'm just lucky it's a nice day outside my window, unlike the poor bastard who watched it in his dark basement.

Thanks a lot! That was the last thing I needed on a Sunday afternoon as I was trying to relax! Especially 'cause after about 2 seconds, I started to lean in really close to the screen to see if I could say anything.

Still shaking...
