It looks like the legacy of the Harry Potter franchise is continuing to live on -- even in the world of bizarre viral videos. On Friday, a video shared by Twitter user @jadynbee_ began to gain attention online, which shows some unusual footage from a woman's security camera. The video, which you can check out below, appears to show some sort of alien-esque creature walking down a driveway.
a lady posted this and said she saw this on her home camera this morning. what y’all think this is ? pic.twitter.com/L98wckn6bO— jey bee . 👑 (@jadynbee_) June 7, 2019
While it's unclear exactly what is going on in the video - and to what degree it's real or fake - it's drawn comparisons to some pretty specific parts of pop culture. In addition to the 1980s classic Mac and Me, the general consensus seems to be that the creature looks like Harry Potter fan-favorite Dobby. Here are a few of our favorite tweets about it.

Everyone saying this is fake because he disappears in the last frame is wrong. OBVIOUSLY DOBBY APPARATED OUT OF THERE. https://t.co/UguBeSsvSm— Potterless (@PotterlessPod) June 8, 2019
