Sydney Harbour Was Invaded By A Goddamn Ghost Ship Last Night

Jesus H. Christ, what the hell is this thing?

It appeared in Sydney Harbour last night and freaked a bunch of people out.

People like former Gizmodo editor Luke Hopewell:

The projection had two parts: one ship spraying water into the air from a cannon on its bow, and one shining light onto that water to create the ghostly image.

It looks freaking amazing.

Luke is almost certainly wrong: this is probably an attempt at viral marketing for the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie, which is coming out in a couple of weeks and features ghost pirates and ghost ships like the last four movies in the series.

I guess that makes us the shills for covering it, but holy shit it's cool. As big marketing stunts go, this is about as good as it gets.
