Homeowner Finds Fake Skeleton in Wall

Internet in hysteria after homeowner finds fake skeleton in wall with note

From scary pictures in hidden rooms to pentagrams carved into the floorboards, homeowners are often surprised by what previous residents leave behind.

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

The video shows the skull looking through an opening 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 says. “Oh my god, that’s hilarious.”

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

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

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

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

“WOW the dedication to pulling a prank that wouldn’t be revealed until years later,” wrote AJ.

Jim Bender called the perpetrator “my kind of people.”

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

Of those who reported that supernatural encounter, 60 percent had been warned in advance of “strange events” happening in their homes. Four in ten had been told their home was haunted, while 23 percent discovered that someone in the property had died before moving in.

A commenter on the TikTok post gained 27,000 likes after claiming the prankster is her brother.

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

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

But what scared people most was the passage of time.

“DO NOT tell me 2013 was 9 years ago,” Dylan said.

“2013 wow that’s vintage”, wrote Peter Groothousen.

“I thought 2013 was great about 3 years ago,” Panchshow joked.
