A 10-second video clip shows a weird creature with skinny legs and overly large ears dancing down her driveway.


“First, I saw the shadow walking from my front door, then I saw this thing … has anyone else seen this on their cameras??” Gomez asked in a social media post accompanied by the strange video. She said her other two cameras did not record the creature.

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.

The post has received more than 9 million views and thousands of responses on social media.

In an interview with "Inside Edition," Gomez said she thinks the thing tried to get in her house before it came into view of her camera. She said her system is programmed to record 10 second increments, so she's not sure where the creature went after it left her driveway.

Some have suggested that it’s an alien. Others said it resembles Dobby the elf from the “Harry Potter” movies. A few have insisted the video is doctored, but Gomez denied that.

“If anyone tested it or whatever they do, it would confirm it’s not altered,” she said in a comment section.
