Barry and Stuart, the Scottish illusionist duo, are on a mission to make the town of Whitstable, England, believe it's at the center of ghostly activity. The sleepy coastal town with a population of just 29,000 is famous for its oysters, pubs and pebbled beach, and now Barry and Stuart aim to add a poltergeist to the list. The duo gets tens of thousands of hits when they release a viral video that showcases the fictitious town ghost, “Mr. Nearing,” in action.
