Toilet roll that moves by itself goes viral after people think it could be supernatural

BOO roll! Video of toilet paper unfurling itself goes viral – as social media users joke it’s down to a playful ghost

  • Person who purchased Morrison’s toilet roll got a shock when it unfurled itself 
  • While in in its holder it appeared not to lose momentum as it continued to unroll
  • Commenters were in disbelief at what they saw as they made ghostly toilet jokes

A clip of a toilet roll apparently unfurling itself has gone viral after it was shared online.

An anonymous Brit took to Reddit to post the video, explaining it was happening to every roll in a pack of nine that he had bought from Morrison’s. 

The majority of commenters were just as baffled by the unusual toilet roll activity, with most surmising that it must be a meddlesome ghost.

One person said: ‘You might need an exorcist.’

Another could relate, saying: ‘Hi, I had exactly the same issue a couple of weeks ago, turned out that my bathroom was haunted so got the old catholic priests in to exorcise the bathroom.’

Another said simply: ‘Boo roll.’  

Others, however, had a more sensible explanation and said the moving toilet roll was down to physics.

Another person thought of a practical solution, saying: ‘Just squeeze to make the inner tube more oval’.

To which the original poster replied: ‘Why didn’t I think of that. Never had this problem with toilet rolls before. Thanks!’While a third thought the product creator wanted customers to come back for more: ‘Clearly a money making feature designed to increase purchases.’
