Ghosts in the machine: Call of Duty rolls out the spooks

Call of Duty fans gear up for a new version of the game franchise every November and this time the campaign is giving unsuspecting victims a fright in the most unlikely places.

That's because fanatics in the Faboom spot show their colours on the job: a dentist can't help waving a drill around, while a garden centre customer gets tackled to the ground.  A wedding and a kid's party are even the scene of excitement, and a male patient gets an unfortunately vigorous examination.
