One TikTok user claims he may have inadvertently recorded an intruder inside his house while he was posting a dance to the app.
In the video, user @reubix_cube is dancing to ‘Say So’ by Doja Cat. His caption for the dance says, “lmao i’m home alone so I learned a tiktok dance” [sic].
In the middle of the dance, viewers noticed something peeking around the corner in the background, right at the top of the stairs. It seems to retreat quickly.
The user likely never thought that the video would go viral for this very creepy reason. Many viewers were frightened by what they saw. Some people jumped to a paranormal explanation while others believed it may be something very dangerous. Had somebody broken into his home?
The original dance video has over 1.7 million views, and the user’s reaction video now has over 6.3 million. This shows a significant increase in the number of viewers reubix_cube typically gets on his videos.
Of course, not everybody was scared. Some users said it was pretty clear that reubix_cube was setting everybody up by making it clear in the video’s caption that he was “home alone.” The video has 161.6k likes and over 7,500 comments, which means that it was certainly a conversation starter for the platform.
The user did make several additional videos to explain that he did not have anything to do with the face that appeared. He also noted that he was very afraid.
In a follow-up video, the user claimed he was having trouble sleeping at night. He also said that he didn’t think a person could have been on the stairs because he would have heard them. He even shows the stairs in the TikTok video footage.
Reu also said that he did not stage the video and that he does live with family members. He asserts that nobody was home at the time, so it was definitely not one of them standing on the stairs.
Some people asked Reu if he had any pets who might have been curious about his dancing, but he claimed that there are no animals in the house. Many people following Reu have expressed concern for his safety and the safety of others living in the home.
Did TikTok users witness a ghost? Were they seeing a home intruder? A lot of people are still very confused by what they saw, and others feel that there must be more to the story.
