Where did she go?

Baffled, internet users have offered explanations for the creepy video that has been viewed more than 15 million times in less than a week.

"The Matrix is broken again," suggested user DontcallmeLen.

"Performing magic in the presence of muggles, the ministry will hear about this" commented another user, making a reference to the Harry Potter series.

"She's Batman," posed another user.

As much as we would like to believe that there's paranormal activity happening, there's probably a simple explanation to the woman's disappearance.

As some users have suggested, the trick is perfect synchronisation, that is, happening at the exact same time.

Essentially, the woman with the trolley shadows the second woman as they both walk away from the frame, creating the illusion she's vanished into thin air.

"That's some serious precision, but you can barely see her disappear behind the other girl, almost unnoticeable," points out one user.

Either way, "Perspective is a hella of a drug."
