In villages, scarecrows made in the middle of the field to drive away birds from the crops is a common sight. Farmers make scarecrows to save their crops from possible damages from birds and other animals. Now, a video of the scarecrow has gone viral on social media which scared the folks on the internet. The clip is of just nine seconds, however, netizens are thoroughly spooked after watching the viral video which seems like a scene of a horror film.
The video posted on Twitter features a scarecrow at an unidentified location, donning a red scarf and gloves, green sweater and blue skirt seemingly frightening, with a scary face. With the help of a spring coil, the scarecrow was swinging around in place instead of standing stationary like a normal scarecrow.
The Twitter user who posted the video called this “Next level scarecrow,” which is true.
To make ‘something different’ of a scarecrow, the farmer has put a stick on a big spring and put the handle of the cycle on it which makes it appear like a ghost is holding the handle of a cycle. The scarecrow is seen swinging around the spring while holding the handle.
