Just got this story about a highway ghost in Japan caught on youtube...
“The time stamp in the corner is also suspicious, showing us that the incident actually happened in August of 2017. Sure enough here is the original video from that time, presumably posted by the driver himself and titled, “Pedestrian on the Highway,”with no mention of a ghost.

Interestingly, the original video, which has been up on YouTube for nearly a year, has only gotten about 51,000 views to date, whereas the “ghost” video racked up about 260,000 views in a couple days. Let this be a lesson for all you aspiring YouTube posters – ghosts sell!”

Point taken that the video was swiped and renamed. But looking at the gent on the highway and slowing the clip down, he does have an odd translucent look to him.

Of course, I don't know if a subpar dashcam and existing lighting would make it look that way.
