Mysterious figure resembles Dobby the House Elf

(Meredith) -- Viral security camera footage shows a mysterious figure walk down a driveway, and now many are claiming the figure is none other than Dobby the House Elf from Harry Potter.

Vivian Gomez posted the original video to Facebook on Thursday and it's already racked up over 10 million views. The short clip shows an SUV parked in the driveway. At first an eerie shadow moves along the wall, then a small figure walks unsteadily down the driveway. It looks to be wearing very little clothing other than sandals and something on its head resembling large ears.

"I woke up Sunday morning and saw this on my camera and am trying to figure out...what the heck," Gomez said.

Some commenters are claiming it's an alien, others say it looks like a child with underwear on their head. Still more say it's just a doctored video or a prank, but the most popular theory claims it's Dobby the House Elf from Harry Potter.
