In the video, you can see an apparition hopping on one leg by the side of the grassy field. The car is moving at a very slow speed and all you can hear is Thai music playing inside the car and the spirit repeating the words “gong goi, gong goi.”
The Gong goi is a mythological ghost that often appears in Asian mythological stories. For though, all of them represent this apparition in a different way. In Chinese, the spirit is called Gong Koi instead of Gong Goi and in Thai mythology, the spirit is called “Phi Hong Koi.”

According to these mythologies, the ghost has red hair but as we see in the video the hair of the hopping child is pure black.
The video certainly looks creepy and many people are talking about this Thai ghost. But in reality, this looks more like a person dressed in a white costume to scare people. Also, don’t forget Halloween is coming.
