(NYPost)   Amateur video appears to show a corpse 'waving' during burial service, and while that's probably not true, it's still creepy as hell   (nypost.com) divider line

Kind of expected this to be about the New Orleans "live funeral" posed bodies.

Followed by amateur video that appears to show dog shiating

I would pay good money to have my corpse made into an animatronic/cyborg that could be programmed to sit up, wave and say "I'm not dead yet" at my funeral/wake.

He probably is by now.

I think whoever it was just knows what's up.

That's obviously a reflection on the glass portal of the coffin. Not creepy at all.

Pretty jaunty little wave for someone about to be buried alive

Darn it.   (   ._.)

Exactly.  The article's supposition that it's rigor mortis is almost as dumb as the idea that the dead guy is waving.

Make sure you take that one off the list.
 
2020-05-13 2:15:00 PM  
The mortician must have really pulled some strings for that to happen...
 
2020-05-13 2:16:18 PM  
Nope
 
2020-05-13 2:17:11 PM  
The wave itself wasn't scary, but if you read his lips you can see he said "see you in two weeks" to the cameraman...

The window on a coffin is creepy enough in and of itself.

I have been to a fair share of funerals. Can't ever say I have seen a coffin with a window.

Be cheaper just to hire a ventriloquist that can do the "man in a box" thingy.  Don't want to go out with people thinking you're a showboat.  And it's really a one-shot thing.  You don't get a second take if something goes wrong.  Just my opinion.

They put him in the box wrong.  Should have been laying on his stomach, pants down with his ass showing.

If "The Death of Stalin" is accurately depicting Stalin's coffin, his had one.

For some reason - and who knows why, because I can be a bit odd at times- I read that in the voice of the General from the insurance adverts on the teevee.

Reminds me of an old George Carlin bit

Marcell Marceau died today, in Paris.  He had no last words... however, he did make several gestures!

The number of people possibly buried alive in the 19th and early 20th centuries is staggering. And terrifying.

And now I'm hearing it that way instead of the drunken rap chant I intended. Curses!

that's not the kind of 'amateur video' I'm used to watching...
 
2020-05-13 2:45:55 PM  
If you want to be creeped the hell out, look up 'Lazarus sign'. I'd recommend starting with reading the Wiki article to decide whether you want to watch a video of it.
 
2020-05-13 2:46:29 PM  
That's just the traditional corpse-marmot.

You may have noticed the cemetery in Westworld where all the crosses had bells hanging from them. This was once a very real and necessary thing.

I want to have them play "Pop Goes the Weasel" at my visitation.  Over and over.
 
2020-05-13 2:58:06 PM  
its pretty clearly just some mourners reflection in the glass on the casket.

Yeah I know.  I am actually surprised it was so recent a thing - I thought I remembered reading about them doing this back in the middle ages
