Very weird elf-like creature captured on video

June 10, 2019 | Comment icon 51 comments



What the heck is this thing ? Image Credit: Facebook / Vivian Gomez
A woman on Facebook recently posted CCTV footage of an utterly bizarre creature walking down her driveway.
Vivian Gomez, who lives in the US, captured the footage in the early hours of the morning.

"So I woke up Sunday morning and saw this on my camera and am trying to figure out... what the heck??" 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??"

"The other two cameras didn't pick it up for some reason."
Sure enough, the mysterious figure can be clearly seen in the footage as it walks - often awkwardly - past the parked vehicle and down the driveway towards the road.

Some social media users have likened the creature to Dobby the Elf from the Harry Potter series.

"Why does 'Dobby' look like he just stumbled out of the bar at 3am," one Twitter user joked.

As things stand, the peculiar footage remains a total mystery.

very possibly, I just notice that they both have long ears, spindly limbs, and short statures, but I agree that it's more likely to be a hoax.

please dont take me as being short or snide hopskinville is a favorate of mine, and me saying "hoax" is painting a broad case with a pinstripe brush, while i dont believe the folks involved encounter aliens or anything otherworldly, u believe there was a stimulus this is a great example of something running wild in peoples minds, the stories never added up or matched what very little evidence there was, and perhaps one or two of the people did hoax or played the others. the bigger unexplained mystery here is why this dobby elf one hasnt been explained and debunked by now,  and yes, i believe i...

It's not CGI, it's a kid with a shirt on his head. You can even see the shirt unravel and fall down at the very end. There's absolutely nothing about it that points to CGI or anything in it that a weird kid couldn't pull off. Why anyone would think anyone would waste time doing this on a computer is beyond me, especially considering the source.

you very well could be correct, and i do believe its prosaic, not an elf nothing paranormal etc but at last i heard over 80m hits no one that i know of has compared her kid or any kid to this videos subject and proved it then and there, my wife cares little anout this stuff when it came out i showed her she said puppet then showed her again days later and she said skinny kid, i just dont see human proportions especially at the front of the car, im i the only one that it looks weird to? so it could be cgi or a puppet or a kid but until its proven one might as well claim its really an elf as of ...

Still It's one of the best video of a ''creature''  that i have seen lately, hoax or cgi. It look weird and got some credible movement.  Interesting video and quite funny to.  Way better than a picture of a cropped shade in some leafs that someone see after looking back at some old photo...

Well done facebook, you really do know how to bring out the idiots. So she gets up and goes through her camera footage, why ???? Unless her car had scratch marks or was even stolen, why the heck would she be looking through her cctv images from the early hours?  Unless she is making it all up and thinks we are as thick as she is. Some people are really that thick and they actually believe everyone else is as thick as them. She needs to get off facebook and get a course in common sense. (Not that she will pass, but worth a try).
