Prank footage of a ghostly girl scaring unsuspecting people inside a lift is winning widespread online praise, where it is being called one of the greatest pranks.
The stunt, which aired on a popular talk show in Brazil on Sunday, has been shared around the world.
A LiveLeak user from Sweden said: "This was the best f---ing prank (sic) EVAAAR!!"
An American user said: "I could watch this all day".
In the footage, unsuspecting participants waiting in the lift look around nervously as the lights begin to flicker before going out altogether.
When the lights come back on, they are confronted with a pale, dishevelled girl in a white dress holding a doll. The child shrieks before disappearing again as the lift blacks out again.
As the prank victims frantically press the buttons on the elevator to make a quick escape the lights go out again.
When they come back on the mysterious girl reappears and screams at them again before making an exit via a panel on the side of the lift.
The Silvio Santos show is a popular program hosted by billionaire Silvio Santos, who owns the SBT network that broadcasts the program.
