Captain Disillusion takes a poke at an old Hollywood urban legend.

One of Captain D’s most thorough debunks.

This is one of Captain D’s most thorough debunks. (Before I say anything else nice about the guy, I should say that we’re friends.) He’s gained quite a following in the skeptic community, and 3 Men and a Baby Ghost Debunk is a good reason why.

The video debunks a famous Hollywood myth: that there’s a ghost in the hit ‘80s comedy 3 Men and a Baby. I haven’t seen the movie since I was a kid and only heard about the ghost after the fact, so luckily Captain D (thanks to the fair use clause) was able to show the scene in question. Legend has it the scene was shot in an apartment where a young boy committed suicide. Of course, that’s not true – the scene was shot on a soundstage in Toronto. And the “ghost” isn’t a boy at all but actually a cardboard cutout of Ted Danson. (Now THAT’S scary!)

These are revelations that have been made before, but it’s nice to have it all laid out in a video, and Captain D makes the case in graphic, irrefutable terms. The video has been made with a lot of humor and wit – two of the best things about this series of Web videos. So… the check’s in the mail, right? I kid, I kid.
