Actually I just found out how to contact a YT member (I'm not very familiar with YT!) so I've sent a brief PM as well.

There is some suggestion that he had previously posted a "How I faked poltergeist videos" series under a different username, but to be fair I've always thought YT was a bitchy little place so lets let him tell us what's going down.

Here's a new ghost story in The Sun.

Polt? Or have these kids been watching too much MellowB1rd?

I can't quite get to grips with the cutlery "exploding" out of the sink. If it's faked he's got some quality eqipment.

I messaged him a few months ago about the knives and forks shooting out of the drawer. I said that the other stuff is simple, but that effect required some specialist gear, or highly crafty innovation, as they shoot out erratically, and quite precicely. He hasn't replied.

Excellent spot. Now, how are you doing decrypting the FBI note?

If what the individual referring to himself as ‘Mellowb1rd’ is faking the videos that he uploads then he is BY FAR the greatest special effects technician in the world.

In fact, he humbles all of the technicians in Hollywood who ought to hide their faces in shame before his achievements.

I have nothing but respect for debunkers, but I think we have our work cut out with this one.

By the way, LOLZ @ ‘fishing string’ (sic) being responsible.

Some nicely done Enfield-style sofa flipping -

This is the first really decent paranormal activity I've been able to get on tape for quite a while. This poltergeist must be pretty strong to move those sofas. There was no further activity after the point where I ended the video. I have no idea what that creepy noise was at the end.

All good fun, but there is certainly fishing line visible at least twice, if you watch full screen in hi def. First at 11 secs, from the back of the sofa, being pulled taught towards the wall (you can even hear it !) then at 18 seconds in the bottom right corner of the screen.
He's getting sloppy!

"starting at 0:12, look closely on the sofa at full screen, you? will see the string. I am unsubscribing."

"You had me a bit then you lost me.. I'm on 480p and I can notice the wires... sorry man, uncool to trick the masses, gullible as they may seem, some? of us do experience ghostly encounters and many do believe.. these however, are not such encounters. Unsubsribe"

"Disliked.. I'm not happy that this is a hoax. I kept an eye out for the string behind the sofa and sure enough, it was there. I'm? pretty disappointed as your videos were fairly convincing but now I realise that you're just a fraud. Unsubbed."

"I can see this video being deleted? soon.. Oh well"

"So Mellowb1rd, what have you got? to say for yourself?"

Shocked I'm surprised they got this far...
