Intriguing, but I too find it odd that the guy used a flashlight to look around - the electricity was obviously working, so why not just flip on the lights?
The ghostly figure looks a little TOO ghostly - it could easily have been added using image-editing software. I mean, it LOOKS like a stereotypical ghost - blobby figure, trailing back end like the back of a sheet, etc. Too tidy.
Also, this incident happened in 2003 - why are we only hearing about it now? If a ghost really did rip up that room, I would imagine that there would photos and other reports of this incident somewhere on the Internet. That's odd too.
I dunno. It would be very cool if it were true, but without coraborrating evidence - photos, eyewitness accounts, etc. - the skeptic in me thinks some bored hotel employees are having us on. Were the police ever called?
ETA: OK, I just watched it again and I think it's a put-on.
For one thing, when "John" goes into the hotel room he only glances into the bathroom and walks quickly by it, as if there's nothing to investigate there. Then, after he backs out, we're told that the shower's on. Now, if that was the case, why didn't John turn on the lights and go into the bathroom to ascertain that what he heard - the shower running - was correct, and why it was on? For all he knew, someone had been taking a shower and fallen, and broken their arm or something. But he never even flicked his flashlight around the door. He just waved it in there a little, and moved on.
For another thing, notice that when he leaves, he leaves the door to the hotel room wide open. No one in security would do that no matter HOW freaked out they were - obviously, you don't want other hotel guests wandering in there, and you don't want any evidence disturbed if something happened. He would have shut and locked the door until the police arrived.
Also - how come we can hear the screams, but we can't hear anything John is saying, and we can't hear the water running in the shower? I can't figure that out.
One last thing - adding comments for the video has been disabled. Usually that means that whoever posted the video (it was posted yesterday) doesn't want anyone leaving critical comments revealing it to be a hoax. Not always, but sometimes.
