The creepy figure was caught on the dashcam of a car as it neared it on the road said to be known for ghost sightings between the Taman Tasik Perdana and Bukit Tunku areas of Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur.
As the car comes out of a bend the figure can be seen in the distance sat still in the middle of the road.
The driver slows the vehicle straight away, saying: “OK, that’s a bit scary.”
A passenger adds: “Yeah. That is very scary.”
The driver then starts to reverse the car away from the figure.
There is panic in the driver’s voice as the clip ends.
It was posted online anonymously, but a number of viewers told of having similar ghostly encounters in the area.
It was even claimed that stories of the mysterious figure in the road go back as far as 10 years.
But, more sceptical viewers said the figure was actually part of a robbery trap also known in the area.
They said if the car had stopped by the person in the road, unseen accomplices would have jumped out from the shadows and mugged them.
