Texas Man Comes Clean After Odd Glitch In His Doorbell Cam Makes It Look Like He Was Abducted By Aliens
Inside Edition / YouTube

A man from Houston, Texas, was recently the subject of viral excitement and controversy in light of what his Ring security camera supposedly recorded on his front door step: the man himself disappearing into the sky.

Theories flew left and right, and the brief Ring video went viral on Twitter as viewers speculated explanations for what they believed they saw in the video.


It's unclear if Larry Lewis, the man from the video, originally shared the video with his friends, or if the recording was acquired by other means, before going viral.

Was This an Alien Abduction or Illusion? youtu.be

Nonetheless, Lewis initially joined in on the fun, playing to the hype that he had fallen victim to an alien abduction.

Between the video being available and Lewis playing along, the video rapidly spread across the internet.





When the video went viral, Inside Edition sought Lewis out for an interview, hoping for more information about what had happened behind-the-scenes, if Lewis had any explanation for what viewers were seeing in the video, and of course, if Lewis had done any tampering with the video himself.

When asked about what appears to be the abduction, Lewis joked:

"I saw myself walking and then I saw myself disappear... I made sure I got home for dinner."

The reporter from Inside Edition then asked what happened, probably meaning what happened when the recording ended, or if Lewis had any explanation for the video.

Lewis, instead, joked again:

"I can't talk about it right now."

Lewis has since come clean, however, to share that the incident had a very simple explanation.

Though it was fun to play along and to speculate what such a sight in a video could mean, Lewis believed at the end of the day that all it was was a camera glitch.

Lewis explained:

"I think it got caught up in the recording, and whatever, the loop got stuck."

The reporter clarified further:

"So it stopped recording, and you had walked out of frame, and it looked like you disappeared?"

Lewis simply agreed:

"Right. Right."

It seems the mystery has been solved for this strange video, but as you can see from many of the Twitter reactions, many still believe there is more to the story. Maybe Invasion of the Body Snatchers will happen after all?

All joking aside, Lewis's recording is a fun video to watch, and speculation comes easily when Lewis's exit is so perfectly timed with the flash of light at the end.

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:
