Suspicious Craigslist Ad For A Free Piano That's 'Not Possessed Or Haunted In Any Way' Goes Viral

Piano, free. Not haunted. Pick up only.

It sounds like the beginning of a horror short story for children, or some strange parallel of Ernest Hemingway's "For sale: Baby shoes, never worn."

It is, in fact, a CraigsList advertisement for an actual piano which is "not haunted."

The piano listing makes clear that this piano is "not haunted or possessed in any way" a second time, calling attention to and questions to why this particular point needed to be reiterated so often.

The piano listing also noted that the instrument does NOT play by itself, as a player piano would.

The listing then ends with the lister begging the buyer to please remove the piano from their home. Clearly, everything is fine and nothing whatsoever about that piano is suspect.

Katie Hyson, the creator of the TikTok, said that her only hesitation was that the ghost might be a bad piano player, hence leading to more torture than drama if she bought the haunted piano.

Hyson also worried about the ghost's music taste and the songs that were in rotation. For those of you who have worked in retail during the holiday season, you know how much of a concern this is.

The ghosts have not elaborated on their style and Hyson does not seem to have purchased the piano, but it does beg an interesting question.

When can a haunted piano do more good for your house than bad?
