Women recorded in the footage are convinced something is not right after re-examining the store’s CCTV and clocking the lack of reflection.
According to legend, undead bloodsucking vampires hate garlic, cannot go out in daylight, and cast no reflection in mirrors or windows.
In the clip, uploaded to several YouTube channels, two women are watching CCTV footage of shoppers inside a store when one tells the other “just keep watching”.
It is claimed the footage – filmed on security cameras in a shop in Savannah, Georgia, in the US – is being examined after a shoplifting incident.
As the video plays one woman asks: “Do you think he’s the guy that stole it?”
Another responds: “No, no look. It’s crazy, watch.”
The man, in a black shirt and trousers, walks past a row of mirrors, but no reflection is cast.
Other shoppers, including a girl in blue shorts, can be seen reflected in the mirror wall.
“Wait, what?” the first woman can be heard saying.
“How is that…? What the f***.”
Viewers have been freaked out by the bizarre clip, with many unable to explain the optical illusion.
One viewer said: “My gut tells me this is obviously fake, but how are some people reflected and not that one man?”
But, it also sparked the vampire debate.
Another viewer said: “Are vampires real or fake? I go with real. This is real!”
Others referenced Edward Cullen, the fictional vampire in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight TV series, played by Robert Pattinson.
Ageng Prasetyawan posted on YouTube: “Edward Cullen is that you?”
But, most people suspected camera trickery or an outright hoax.
And, it turns out there may be a simple explanation for the “paranormal” incident.
It was actually a trick performed by Scottish magicians Barry Jones and Stuart MacLeod for their TV show The Happenings.
