Woman Worried About Neighbour Who Turned Out To Be Cardboard Cut-Out Of Judi Dench

Musician Amy Macdonald has shared an amusing anecdote involving her friend and their neighbour across the road - or, er, lack thereof.

Macdonald, who lives in Glasgow, posted a photo showing the exterior of an unknown building, which she explained was the property across the road from her pal.

In the window, you can see the vague outline of a person, who appears to be wearing a long white shirt and sporting a short, cropped hairstyle.

Macdonald wrote: "My mate was in work and she noticed a woman standing at the window in one of the flats opposite.

"She didn't really think anything of it. She thought it was just a woman enjoying a coffee whilst looking out the window."

The 'This is the Life' singer explained her friend started to 'get a bit worried' when hours and passed and she realised this mysterious woman 'had not moved'.

Macdonald continued: "She went to get a better view."

Then, giving us the punchline we very much enjoyed, Macdonald added: "Och, just a cardboard cutout of Judi Dench.

Woman Shocked To Find Bed Impaled To The Side Of Her House

"To the person who lives in this flat. You have given us the best laugh today."

Her fans on Twitter had a lot of time for the amusing story, with one commenting: "What a plot twist."

Another laughed: "The old 'make 'em think someone's at home' trick!"

Whether or not the life-size replica of Dame Judi Dench is a security measure, one thing's for sure: it's an absolute delight.

Meanwhile, over in Japan, two parents decided to place a cardboard cut-out in their home - although this time we do know the reason behind it, and it's nothing short of absolutely incredible.

Japanese mum Fuki Sato and her husband decided to think outside the (cardboard) box to stop their child crying when she left the room, tricking the kid into thinking she's still there by leaving a cut-out of herself behind.

And apparently it works like a charm.

Her husband shared a video and photographs on Twitter, soon racking up a great deal of attention from impressed social media users.

He said: "It's hard because my one-year-old child cries as soon as mum disappears.

"As a counter-measure, I experimented with what would happen if I set up a 'life-sized panel mother'."

In case you're worried, the dad also pointed out that at no point was the child left completely on his own.
