Nice Trick-or-Treat. I'm still comforting my 16-year-old budding 
photojournalist, and rubbing my ears!

I sent this to some of you many months ago, but not all LUGgers have been 
lucky enough to appreciate this great photographic endeavor.

The following is a car advertisement that was never released. When the crew 
finished filming, the folks in the cutting room noticed something moving 
along the side of the car, like a ghostly white mist. They also noticed that 
the soundtrack had a strangely pitched ghostly sound as the mist 
disappeared. The ad was never put on tv because of the unexplained 

Watch closely... as the car comes from behind the trees, about halfway 
through the commercial, look and you will see the white mist crossing in 
front of the car, then following it along the road.

You'll need to turn up your sound in order to hear the strange low pitched 

I've been told that Leica glass was used for the last portion of the 
filming.  :-) ;-)
