The origins of the Ring Girl began with an upload of a video on YouTube in 2006, featuring CJ in his living room and looking around when a silhouette of a girl appears from the television in the corner and disappears a second later. Other than this video, there was no other proof that the mysterious girl existed in the game. It is believed that the Ring Girl was simply a pedestrian spawn glitch.
The dark figure looks very similar to a homeless pedestrian that can be found in San Fierro, which has a "God is playing with us!" sign hanging around his neck - there was even a video on YouTube comparing both the TV girl and the tramp pictures. Currently, the Ring Girl is remembered occasionally, usually with a nostalgic purpose as there isn't any proof of the girl's existence apart from the short blurred video.
