Homeowner finds fake skeleton in wall

Internet in Hysterics after owner finds fake skeleton in wall with note

From spooky photographs in hidden rooms to pentagrams carved into the floorboards, homeowners are often surprised by what former residents leave behind.

At least the former tenants of TikToker’s @kzwpg house in Winnipeg, Canada had a good sense of humor. In a clip posted June 18, @kzwpg, real name Kaleigh, shared the plastic skeleton she discovered during a home renovation, which users described as “hilarious.”

In the video, the skull can be seen peering through a gap in the wall. Kaleigh’s father then removes the panel to reveal the skeleton’s torso and legs, dressed head to toe in denim.

“There’s a note,” Kaleigh’s mother said. “Oh my god, that’s hilarious.”

His father pulls the note from the skeleton’s pocket, which reads, “Boo! Ha ha, did I scare you? Jason Lane, 2013.”

“I’ve lived here for 6 years and this skeleton has been watching me from behind the bathroom mirror the whole time,” Kaleigh wrote alongside the post.

TikTok users loved the prank, with the post receiving over 500,000 likes and over 2,000 comments.

“I mean humor doesn’t die mate,” Leoo0 said, while Madlen Bowen commented, “That’s hilarious omg.”

“WOW the dedication to pull off a prank that will only be revealed years later,” AJ wrote.

Jim Bender dubbed the attacker “my kind of people”.

Although the skeleton is a fake, a study by Cinch Homes found that one in 10 Americans moved because of a “haunting”. The survey of 1,000 people found that 83% of respondents believed they had experienced paranormal activity in their home, including strange sounds, voices and lights turning on and off on their own.

Of those who reported a supernatural encounter, 60% had been warned beforehand of “strange happenings” occurring in their home. Four in 10 people learned that their home was haunted, while 23% discovered that someone had died in the property before moving in.

A commenter on the TikTok post received 27,000 likes after claiming the prankster was his brother.

“It was our great-grandfather’s house, and then Jason bought it and did the renovation before moving to British Columbia. [British Columbia].”

However, users weren’t convinced, with Josh writing, “I know Jason’s dog, he’s a good guy!”

“How can he be your brother when Jason is actually my mom and we live in CB,” cbrownee3 added.

But what frightened people the most was the passage of time.

“Don’t tell me 2013 was 9 years ago,” Dylan said.

“2013 wow this is vintage,” wrote Peter Groothousen.

“I thought 2013 was a high 3 years ago,” Panchshow joked.

Newsweek contacted @kzwpg for comment.
