Netizens find billboard on EDSA ‘creepy’

Passers-by along EDSA-Mandaluyong are a bit  freaked out by the video clip of a “girl on a swing” currently being shown on a light-emitting diode (LED) billboard.
Netizens were able to capture the said clip and uploaded them on different social networking sites roughly two weeks ago.
Celebrity KC Montero posted on Instagram an 11-second video first showing an advertisement for Manny Pacquiao’s fight with Mayweather, then suddenly shifts to what appears to be a silhouette of a girl swinging back and forth.
Montero captioned his post with “Has anybody seen this on EDSA? Kind of creepy”.

ABS-CBN actress Maxene Magalona posted a similar video which came with the caption: “Did you see the video billboard on EDSA with a little girl on a swing? Kinda creepy don’t you think?? I wonder what that’s about?”
“Bro, does this play randomly? ‘Cause if it is, it’s creepy”, said a certain Instagram user known as @micylequizon.
Other netizens saw it as another movie or television show teaser while some say it is a public advertisement.
OOH Resource’s Lloyd Tronco said they are still “verifying and investigating” the “girl on a swing” clip.
For now, he said it could either be a “filler material inserted to use up the gaps between advertisements or a teaser for a new program for the advertised network.”
In February 2014, a controversial “Olivia, will you marry me?” billboard advertisement that dotted the metropolis  sparked the curiosity of the public. It turned out that it was  for a campaign of a real estate company.
