This weekend, a woman named Vivian Gomez posted a very odd video to social media, and now it has gone viral.

The brief clip was purportedly captured by her home’s outdoor security camera and shows a strange looking figure jaunting down her driveway.

In a Facebook post, she wrote, “First I saw the shadow walking from my front door then I saw this thing….has anyone else seen this on their cameras??” 

Many Twitter users have suggested the figure looks like the elf Dobby from the Harry Potter series.

However, some Twitter users have pointed out that there appears to be a second shadow alongside the figure very briefly at the beginning of the clip, suggesting it may be a hoax.

The truth is out there people.
