A strange video circulating online shows an elf-like creature many are saying resembles the character Dobby from the “Harry Potter” film franchise.
The short clip has gone viral online after being posted to Twitter on Friday by a user who says it was put up on the Facebook page of a woman named Vivian Gomez. A security camera at the home captured the clip, which shows a small figure with skinny legs and large ears walk down a driveway and do a dance. . .

Some eagle-eyed Twitter users pointed out that at one point in the video there appears to be two shadows, and mused that someone could have created the elf-like puppet and set it off.
Whatever the explanation is, the sighting is certainly bizarre. “Harry Potter” fans were eager to celebrate a possible return of Dobby, as the beloved character tragically died in the sixth film in the franchise, “Deathly Hallows.”
Reactions to Dobby’s death were so emotional that writer J.K. Rowling was moved to apologize on Twitter in 2018 for killing off the “free” elf. (Read more from “Creepy: Home Camera Catches Video of Fantasy Creature” HERE)
