Thai Rath reported that a Thai food seller in Ayuthaya was a great hit with passing motorists.

She was dressed as evil ghost Mae Naak holding a baby while selling her 25 baht bags of moo ping (BBQ pork) and sausage. 

Reporters went to an intersection on the Rojana Road and found out that she was actually a 23 year old actress called Nannaphat Chalachainanpha. 

She works at a floating market in Ayuthaya and thought it would be a good idea to drum up custom by dressing up as Mae Naak with a doll baby.

She had to admit her idea was going down well – everybody wanted to buy her wares!

Thai Rath called it a splendid idea. 

Thaivisa notes that the legend of Mae Naak Phrakhanong stems from the days of Rama IV during the 18th Century. 

A man called Maak and a woman called Naak were going to have a baby when Maak was called away from Prakhanong to serve in the army in Bang Kork. 

But while he was away complications in the birth – specifically the position of the baby – resulted in the death of both mother and child who then became spirits that scared the neighbors no end.

A shrine to Mae Naak exists in the temple of Wat Mahabut in Soi On Nut, Sukhumvit Soi 77.
