It seemed like an ordinary day at the pub Ajay Cohan, 30, managed in West Bromwich. He woke up, put on clothes, lived his day like he normally would, and put his cellphone on a seat in the pub like always. “I know my cellphone will be here when I get back because ghosts don’t exist and even if they do exist I doubt they exist here, in my pub,” he probably thought. “This cellphone is safe right here.” But BOY WAS HE WRONG! From SWNS:

But when he checked CCTV cameras back footage showed his mobile mysteriously disappearing from the chair at 2.30am. Locals say the chair was the favourite seat of former landlord Gary Stephens who would sit there and enjoy a pint with punters until he died in 1993 of a heart attack. Ajay found his phone on the floor the following morning over the other side of the pub and believes the incident could be the work of Mr Stephens’ poltergeist.

“I DON’T BELIEVE IT,” you’re thinking. “I’ll believe it when I see it, but I doubt I’ll ever see it. This seems TOO spooky to be true! Plus, if ghosts really do exist, then I’m not sure– What would I do with that information? Go to church? Prepare for an afterlife? What would–” Well shut up and get ready for the footage!

AHHHH! AHHHHH! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I had to watch that so many times before I saw that cellphone fall off of the seat but when I did, boy oh boy! AHHHHHHHH! GHOSTS EXIST! PREPARE TO SPEND YOUR AFTERLIFE IN THE PLACE WHERE YOU USED TO WORK, NOOOOO! KEEP YOUR CELLPHONES ON YOU AT ALL TIMES! (Via Abroath.)

  1. This proves not only that ghosts exist, but also that Ajay Cohan doesn’t know how to output clips from his CCTV setup.

  2. I can’t wait to be a ghost. I’m going to fuck with so many people’s phones.


  4. Mr. Cohan needs to have a talk with the guy who stands in the corner of his pub all day holding the CCTV camera. That guy’s camerawork is all over the place.

  5. I worked at a library in high school (cool!), so spending my afterlife at my old place of work means that this is basically future me.


  6. Did he forget that he set his phone on vibrate? If I was a dead landlord, I’d just put my ghost hand in the cash register instead of messing with the guy’s phone. Like on the anniversary of the guy’s death they eerily run out of $20 bills.

  7. my ex sincerely believed he was haunted and that malevolent spirits were tormenting him. turns out it was just the beginning stages of schizophrenia.

  8. My grandma used to talk to ghosts all the time around me (mostly her dead husband – my grandfather). She also had this ink blot painting of Jesus and told me if I ever couldn’t see Jesus in it that meant I was possessed or a demon.

  9. I love that the article tells us that it “disappeared” at 2:30am, presumably because stating an exact time is an important fact that proves it was ghost, even though the time on the video says 3:1something. Of course, I’m just being pedantic (and ignoring the bright daylight or extremely wasteful out-of-hours lighting they use) because I think that it was actually abducted by UFOJFKELVISBIGFOOTNESSIEVAMPIREWEREWOLFHONESTPOLITICIANS. The government has known about them fo for years but is more interested in reaping the benefits of helping phone companies sell replacement phones.

  10. Alternate theory: the cell phone is haunted/secretly murdering people.

    He should salt and burn it. Just to be safe.

  11. Sure, it might not seem so freaky at first, but what if I told you that the phone had been dead for 15 hours?

  12. Ehh ghost phones are OK, but I prefer haunted toasters.
