Despite the intrigue it has aroused, many people are seeing it as a joke or a ploy to attract more attention and likes to the restaurant page. While many people were serious enough to read something like this, more users responded with laughing emoticons.

The eatery, which is close to Chichester, a market town, has also responded to the comment too. It confirmed the date on which the video was filmed, "Hi Lucy, sorry to hear this. This footage was recorded last week."

One user named Kristian Hill asked, "Lucy Watson we need an update! Was his body ever found, or just a canoe?" Another asked, "I need to know what's going on. Asap." One joked, "curry so good this lady's late husband came back to life for it."

A user said this all was a hoax and just a social media marketing strategy, "This whole ‘Lucy’ story is a social media marketing genius move how many likes and clicks is this restaurant now getting!!" Others asked Lucy to respond and not just remain silent for that was a social media crime. "Nah because you really need to come back here and give the people some more information. This is a social media crime."
