The video was first posted on Facebook on July 5, 2022 by a man named Douglas Windsor McCloney III. He wrote that it was filmed on a security camera somewhere in the town of Morehead, in the Red River Gorge area, Kentucky.
The quality of the video is very poor, and it looks like the recording posted online was taken by the phone from the computer screen, which makes it even more blurry.
The video shows a whitish figure that looks like a very thin person moving strangely next to a car near some structure. The figurine moves on bent legs and crouching.
“It doesn’t move like a human. It moves almost as if its kneecaps are pointing backwards. It reminds me of Gollum from The Lord of the Rings. And in the last frame you can see the ribs and pretty much the bones of his skeleton,” writes the author video.
Some commentators felt that the figure resembled the famous “pale crawlers” from American urban legends and modern Internet horror stories.
Others have suggested that the footage shows an ordinary robber in some kind of tight suit and, probably, just very thin in physique. And his strange movements were explained by the fact that he was trying to hide and maybe he wanted to steal a car or break into a house.
There were also speculations that the video was of an old man with a disability, a drug addict or a mentally ill person.
