Whether or not you're a fan of the supernatural, a tree in Thailand has been doing something crazy for quite some time now, and video of it has surfaced online, sparking a debate between believers and non-believers alike. Believed by many to be a sacred Buddhist tree, the Nariphon, as its called, bears fruit that resembles the body of a young woman. Watch the video and see for yourself — is it just a plain old hoax or not?

According to Thai lore, these mysterious fruit trees were planted by the god Indra in a sacred forest called Himaphan so that Gandharva, heavenly beings that lived on Earth at the time, could all be fed and nourished (Indra also wanted to protect his wife). And because of this religious significance, many dried Nariphon pods are stored in Luang Pho Jarun at Wat Ampawan In Singburi Buddhist temple near Bangkok. Because of the lack of specific information regarding how the latest video was made, and the somewhat obviously fake facial features of the fruit, more people than not are refusing to believe that the female bodies of fruit growing on the tree are real. But then again, the world is a mysterious place . . .

So what do you think? Is this holy tree really bearing fruits shaped like women, or is this just another elaborate (kind of) hoax? Maybe someday, just maybe, someone will capture a video of Bigfoot sneaking up on the Nariphon tree and stealing a few female fruits, and that will answer the question once and for all.
