A TikTok user driving around at night captured the horrifying moment they saw a weird creature running towards them.
In the clip, uploaded by user @itz_louisvuitton, the camera is hanging out of the car as they apparently scour the area for animals.
A voice says: "I think I've seen a buck or something. Wait a minute, that's not a buck."
The camera then focuses on a human-like shape, with pale skin, hurtling towards them.
At that point, the camera is yanked down and the clip ends abruptly.
Since it was uploaded on January 26, the video has been watched more than 6 million times and "liked" 900,000 times, received thousands of comments from gobsmacked viewers.
The TikTok user didn’t say what they thought the weird figure could be, only writing "scary" in the caption.
But many conspiracy theorists believed it could be a "skinwalker" – a mythical cryptid creature said to roam around the wilderness at night.
The original legend comes from Navajo culture and a skinwalker is described as a type of witch that can transform into different animals.
One viewer wrote: "Skinwalker, rake, or pale man."
A second viewer commented: "Skinwalker or windigo bro. They dangerous."
"That’s a skinwalker if ever I saw one," said a third.
Someone else argued: "Guys that’s not a skinwalker, skinwalkers have fur or turn into animals and lure people to them. That’s a windigo."
A more skeptical viewer said it was odd they happened to be filming at just the right time and said the footage was just an "attempt to fool people".
