Earlier this month, Long Island YouTuber Joey Nolan shared footage of what he claimed might’ve been a strange and supernatural “visitor” walking through his kitchen.
The footage, originally captured on August 8 at 12:54 a.m. by a home security camera, begins plainly with an ordinary scene — a small staircase, a TV, a couch. A cat. But after only a few seconds, something ethereal appears to move through the doorway at the right.
“Some claim it’s a little boy and their pet,” Nolan wrote in the video’s description.
According to LADBible, this alleged apparition was not the first sign of paranormal activity in their home. Before capturing the footage, Nolan and his wife experienced a shared dream about buying a puppy for their daughter.
They also encountered instances of seeing or hearing things they couldn’t explain, he said.
As mentioned, at 0:03 in the video, you can see what could almost be described as a humanoid figure quickly turning the corner at the doorway (and then, something else, but we’ll get to that).
The cat, being a cat, seems completely disinterested in the situation. Given that the cat didn’t react to whatever appeared on the video, this could mean that either 1.) the cat was familiar with it, or 2.) nothing notable actually appeared.

In any case, a few YouTube commenters toss out some interesting suggestions. One user recommends attempting to record an EVP. Another posits that this may actually be a future incarnation of Joey “wandering in a tesseract” trying to tell his past self about future events. Still another fears this all may be a sign of demonic activity.
For Nolan’s part, he says he and his wife are fine with the idea of sharing their house with a wayward spirit, so long as things remain peaceful.
However, others are convinced the video shows nothing more than a cobweb. If you watch closely beginning at 0:19, you can see what looks like a very blurry spider move slightly, stop, then continue off camera. The footage is replayed multiple times at slower speeds, though, so you can draw your own conclusions.
