In Japan, it's said that being haunted by the ghost of a young child is actually a good thing. These zashiki warashi, as Japanese people call them, are believed to bring good luck to everyone who sees them. If they inhabit a family home, their presence is said to bring the family living there good fortune.
But just because they're supposed to be helpful doesn't mean that they're not also terrifying. One man claims to have caught a zashiki warashi on film, and he's now sharing that video with the world in hopes that it will bring viewers good luck. Nice of him, but also not.

Well, hoax or not, I am thoroughly unsettled by this video. If the price of good luck is having to see a ghost, I think I'd rather be left alone.
