Social media should really come with a cut off time. It can be different times depending on the person, but just imagine if you weren’t able to use social media after a certain time of day. You can even set it yourself. Suddenly we’re limiting late night posts that one my instantly regret upon waking up or friend requesting a certain someone who you shouldn’t be friend requestion or somehow using Facebook messenger to call an ex at three in the morning to wish him a happy birthday three days before his actual birthday and fourteen years after you broke up… yes, that last one really happened to me.
Setting a cut off time could also prevent one from seeing certain things that would be better seen in the morning opposed to the late hours of the night that are slowly creeping towards the scary hours of the night. Case and point, I’m not sure how many of you have seen the security video of the alien/house elf but here, allow me to enlighten you…
At any hour of the day, this would constitute a “what the hell did I just watch” reaction, but at one o’clock in the morning…? Let’s just say there were multiple viewings, a Twitter wormhole searching for answers, and this hollow feeling in my chest knowing that something like this is currently existing in the world. Like, where the hell did this thing go once it reached the end of the driveway? Why was it clapping like it just won a big game of Madden? Why stop the footage there? Did this thing get beamed up, vanish into smoke, or turn and look at the camera before blinking out of existence? I. Need. To. Know.
The bigger question here is the simplest. What the hell is this thing? My immediate thought was house elf. There’s no doubt in my mind that this looks like something right out of Harry Potter and if Dobby wasn’t dead he’d be my number one suspect. A part of me kind of wants it to be a house elf just for blurred lines between reality and fiction.
Alien? That’s possible. The expression of emotion, the clapping, has me alarmed as I’ve always thought of aliens as kind of emotionless. Weird, right? Have any of you ever thought of an alien clapping? And what’s he clapping about? It’s clear that this creature is closing some sort of door or gate before making his exit. Is it clapping about whatever mischief it caused in the house/human race or because it stole a sock that didn’t belong to him? Is it at all possible to believe that this creature is what’s responsible for stealing socks out of our dryers? This could be the solving of one of the world’s greatest mysteries of all time.
Then there are the more logical answers. I’ve seen kid with underwear on his head which somehow seems less likely than alien or house elf. Why is a kid sneaking out of his house with underwear on his head while walking into the darkness? That’s just poor parenting. I’ve also seen puppets or weird shadow imagery… then there’s always the possibility that this is some kind of CGI creation set to get likes and re-tweets. If that’s the case, it worked.
All I know is that I need to know the answer to this. I want it debunked or proven as soon as humanly possible. I can’t live in a world where I don’t know what this is. What if it brings its clapping here?! How can I stop it? Throw a sweater at it? When push comes to shove this video just proves one thing… I need to stay off social media at one o’clock in the morning.
What do you think Geeklings? What’s your best theory on this footage? Who is Team House Elf? Team Alien? Team Something More Reasonable? Sound off in the comments and let us know what your theories are. If you want to break this video down further then you can find me over on Twitter @iamgeek32. I’m ready to talk this through. For the love of my sanity I kind of need to…
