Scarecrows have long been used at farms and orchids to shoo away some uninvited birds and crows that can harm the produce. The still scary human-like installation is enough to instill fear in the flying intruders. However, some seem to be always willing to take things to another level. An example of this is in a video that featured a scarecrow. And, we think that the scarecrow will not only keep the crows at bay but can also terrify the soul of a person.
The clip shows an ingenious scarecrow where a ghost-like figure appears to levitate and move with the wind. The quirky creator of the scarecrow has attached the figure to a long rod with a handle of a cycle bar on one end. As the wind blows, the “ghost” moves as if it is floating in mid-air.
“When an engineer designs a scarecrow,” the caption read.

Another has suggested a good use of the scarecrow. “I would have bought it to scare my neighbor’s kid whose ball always comes into my porch,” the comment read.

Some imagined the extent of fear the scarecrow can bring if seen accidentally at night.
Imagine coming across it at night and not knowing it’s a scarecrow.
