This video was uploaded by Iman Laslos's YouTube channel. The channel, which now has 1.4 million subscribers, has uploaded the video 'Proving Kuntilanak Does Not Touch the Ground'. Indeed, many doubt the authenticity of this video, even joking by calling the glowing kuntilanak.

In the video, a man tries to prove that his kuntilanak's feet don't touch the ground. The camera's spotlight initially shows the position of the kuntilanak with a long shirt reaching the ground.

The man then approached. Open the bottom of the cloth and the kuntilanak feet do not touch the ground. But the camera only shoots closely at the bottom of the foot to the ground. The video does not show a complete appearance of kuntilanak from the long-haired head to the bottom

After that, the camera shook. Only then, the full version of kuntilanak is displayed again. This camera game was questioned by video viewers.

Regarding the proliferation of content that could make the public 'astray', the National Police asked the public not to easily believe it. Because it is possible that the production of these impressions is intentionally made only for the sake of content.

The National Police also reminded social media not to become a place for spreading hoax content including hate speech and ethnicity, religion, religion, and intergroup issues. All parties, social media users and content creators must both ensure positive content.
