Creepy security footage has people wondering if Dobby is real

12 June 2019

Social media is abuzz after a woman posted video on her Facebook account showing a unusual creature resembling an elf from the Harry Potter movies saunter through her driveway. While most commented about the resemblance of the creature to Dobby, a few raised suspicions about the video being a hoax.

In her original post on Facebook on Sunday, Vivian asked viewers if they could come up with a plausible explanation.

Viewers immediately likened it to the house elf character in the Harry Potter franchise, known as Dobby. First I saw the shadow walking from my front door then I saw this thing....has anyone else seen this on their cameras??

"So I woke up Sunday morning and saw this on my camera and am trying to figure out", a stunned Ms Gomez wrote on Facebook, sharing the video.

The clip shows what appears to be a small figure with skinny legs and large ears walking along the path in front of her house, doing a little jig. Nonetheless, this video has been viewed millions of times and has spurred a number of theories about what it shows.

Some pointed out that the creature appears to vanish completely in the last frame of the video. The following day, Niantic, Inc. and WB Games San Francisco released a trailer for the location-based augmented reality game Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.

"Good to see that #dobby is alive and thriving", said one Twitter user.

Another thought we'd got the wrong elf, as they added: "You guys, don't be stupid".

The footage also made it to Twitter where people have shared it widely.

Whatever the figure may be, it definitely appears quite creepy looking!

Although someone hit back: "If it were a puppet, wouldn't you see strings attached in the shadow?"
