Colorado Woman Spots Myserious 'Dobby' Like Figure On CCTV
A woman has shared footage of a creature resembling Harry Potter 's Dobby on her driveway and people are positively freaked out.
Vivian Gomez from Colorado woke up on Sunday, 2nd June to make the discovery upon checking her CCTV camera footage. The black and white video shows a small thin character prancing down her driveway at 9.59pm the evening before.
The figure, which bares striking similarities with the much-loved house-elf, then does some sort of chicken dance before the footage stops.
Check it out here:
Sharing the video on Facebook, Vivian wrote: "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 other two cameras didn't pick it up for some reason."
Vivian added in the comments that she has "watched it over and over and keep lights on inside now."
However the video, which has been shared over 122,000 times, has been branded a hoax by commentators who say the strange figure is down to CGI, a puppet or a robot.
One Twitter user said: "The cuts in this video scream edited hoax. There is no CGI. The figure is real. The shadows match.
"However, that wasn't a door shadow, it was another person. (4 sec. in). And the truck with it's lights on (brake lights) is suspicious. Robot/puppet."

"Why does "Dobby" look like he just stumbled out of the bar at 3am," said another.
"Dobby is a free elf!" a third added.
Real or not, we need a hug.
