The internet was taken by a storm when a woman shared a nine-second video clip of strange elf-like creature, which resembled 'Dobby', a character from the Harry Potter series.
"So I woke up Sunday morning and saw this on my camera and am trying to figure out...what the heck?? First I saw the shadow walking from my front door then I saw this thing....has anyone else seen this on their cameras??", the Facebook user, Vivian Gomez posted the CCTV footage with this caption on June 6.
The clip shows a small, scrawny figure with wobbly legs and floppy ears, walking up the woman's driveway rather happily.
The social media has come up with its own set of theories on the bizarre video, some suggesting that it resembles an elf, while the 'Potterheads' associating it with Dobby from Harry Potter saga.
Here are some reactions to the clip which has received over nine million views in a week.
