Usually, when you check your home security camera footage after a long day at the water park, you probably don’t see much. You might catch a few passing cars or a fallen tree branch. Maybe a raccoon eating all your cat food. But sometimes — sometimes you find an elf dancing in your driveway.
And that’s when you know you’ve struck Internet gold.
On June 6, 2019, Vivian Gomez shared bizarre footage of what appears to be someone — or something — oddly dancing in her Colorado Springs driveway. The video has become very popular, garnering at least 15 million views on Facebook alone at the time of this posting.
“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.”

Many remain skeptical. Some believe the figure is CGI, while others feel it’s simply a person in a costume. Many have likened it to Dobby the House Elf from the Series-That-Must-Not-Be-Named. The story has become so high-profile, Gomez even did an interview a few days ago with Inside Edition.

People just can’t get enough of this dancing elf.
Well, the figure in the video is indeed unsettling, and perhaps more than a little mischievous. This leads me to conclude that what we have here is actually an entity from the Celtic Otherworld, one that appears computer generated to some simply because our human minds can’t comprehend what we’re seeing.
That, or it’s a very skinny person in a Dobby mask, flip flops, and underwear.
Either scenario is immensely horrifying to me, but I’ll let you draw your own conclusions.
