Why do ghosts appear upside down?

What is the origin of the trope of a newly dead person appearing upside down, and what are some additional examples? For some reason, I associate this with the movie "Ghost Dad," although I'm not sure why, as I don't think Bill Cosby ever appears upside down. The only actual example of this that I can put my finger on is Ludacris' "Southern Hospitality" video (@ 2:49). I am reasonably sure that this is a reference to whatever I'm thinking of and not the first time it had been done.
