An unusual video that has been circulating online over the weekend shows what appears to be a character from the “Harry Potter” series.
It appears that a security camera at the home captured the video, showing a small humanoid figure with large ears dancing in a driveway.
It’s not clear if the video was edited.

Gomez claimed she saw the footage of her driveway.
“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,” Gomez wrote in Facebook video that has generated over 5 million views in a few days.
Some people noted that there appears to be two shadows, claiming that the elf-like figure was a puppet led by strings.

While some claimed it was digitally-edited, one person wrote, “The varying light shadows and detailed reflection against the car makes this extremely difficult to ‘fake.’”
“There’s also a reflection in the window to the left near the end. If this is fake someone spent a ton of time and money to get reflection in the car and window and shadows extremely correct,” the person said.

Others said it looked like Dobby, a character in the Harry Potter film “Deathly Hallows.”
You can see someone in the house stick their hand out the window at couple seconds before the video ends. Looks like a puppet of some sort to me
