Baby monitors are awesome in that they give parents a way to keep an eye on their kids 24/7, and to feel good about having them in their own room at night (ideally) from a young age. That said, they also have the potential to be creepy – you’re spying, after all, and sometimes the cameras make your precious jewel look more like the spawn of Satan than a peacefully sleeping baby.
There’s also the fact that people have hacked into them (double ick), but I don’t know…potentially seeing a ghost on there ranks pretty high on the list of reasons they’re maybe not the best thing ever.
I know that I’ve seen shadows pass in front of my own camera and had to resist the urge to grab my kid and call the nearest priest to come cleanse the place, but the dad who filmed and shared the video below has more reason than me to be the slightest bit freaked out.
In case you missed it…
Some people on the Internet were skeptical (god love ’em) and suggested the guy has enough time on his hands to doctor baby cam footage (maybe he does, what do I know?)…
While others had more of my reaction (which was eep!).
What do you think? Glitch? Hoax? Time to move?
Go ahead and watch it again (I know I did!).
