Why Would He Do This?
Stella was in shock. Watching the secret footage of her husband and two kids, her mouth becomes wide open. As she watches the unimaginable man she married, she can sense her heartbeat in her throat. However, this must have been a joke. Her childhood sweetheart was her husband; she was her soulmate. She could never imagine that he was ever going to do such a thing. She knew there was no going back.
The Perfect Life
For Stella Jackson, her family was everything. She married her childhood sweetheart Josh 10 years ago, and then their two beloved kids came along. Ben was 18 months old, and Emma was five years old. Yes, Stella thought in her ‘perfect life’ that nothing could go wrong. But when she used a nanny cam to record her husband and children secretly, she uncovered something truly incredible.
Pregnant At Last
Being a parent was not always easy for Stella and Josh. For five years, they had been trying to get pregnant, and it seemed that having a family wasn’t on their cards. However, eventually, their hard work seemed to pay off. In 2015 and 2019, they welcomed their daughter Emma and son Ben. Finally, their family felt complete, but they had no idea what was coming to them.
For Stella, it was hard to balance a full-time job while being a mommy. At times, it often felt like she was a superwoman, powering her route through whatever obstacle. But she and Josh agreed that she would go to work for the first five years, and he would be a stay-at-home dad. She didn’t mind Josh. But Stella soon discovered something about her “stay-at-home dad.”
What Was His Problem?
Stella had started to notice that Josh acted a little differently. He seemed distant most of the time she saw him, something in his mind lingering. He would never confess his true feelings, however. She had no idea what she would discover about her beloved husband as she set up a hidden camera.
Deep In The Night
Josh was usually a devoted dad. But it seemed that lately, he had other things on his mind. That’s what Stella was trying to get him to talk about, but he wouldn’t. Then, one night, Stella woke up to find her bed empty. Where was Josh? She rubbed and yelled at her weary eyes, but Josh didn’t respond. She peered through the crack of the door, and what she saw left her speechless in her hallway.
What Was He Doing?
Josh was leaving their eldest daughter Emma’s room. What has he been doing? Stella looked around at her clock. In the morning, it was 3:45. Was Emma perhaps just having a nightmare? Stella brushed it off as Josh was just doing his dad’s duties, but she was so wrong.
Getting A Nanny Cam
Stella had begun to miss out on spending time with her two kids, becoming even more concerned with work. So she set up a nanny cam to make sure there was nothing she missed out on. It was a plan which was foolproof. While she was able to do work, she would get to see her beloved kids. But when she looked at the video of the morning she had set it up, she couldn’t believe her eyes.
Keeping An Eye On Things
For most parents, a nanny cam is a perfect way to keep an eye on things. You simply press the record and can then watch the footage immediately using the app on your phone. When Stella took a peek at the secretly recorded video of her husband and kids, she was left reeling.
Setting Up The Secret Camera
Stella had set up the nanny cam before she went to work. For some odd reason, she did not tell her husband, as she felt like she didn’t need to. She opened up the nanny cam app while at work at lunch and watched the previous morning’s video. She didn’t know what was about to come.
Watching The Footage
Stella thought she would find some cute moments to send her and her kids to her family when she ate her lunch at work while watching the nanny cam video, searching for some peace of mind. She never expected, however, that she had captured something entirely different this time.
Kids Look Happy
The video started in the living room with footage of her two kids. Stella smiles to herself as she watches her beloved children dancing around to a song on TV. Josh looked as if he was doing laundry in the background, but he suddenly appeared in the shot. What he did next made it all change. In just a couple of minutes, her husband’s true colors were revealed.
Not What She Expected
Stella watches as her husband for over a decade, and a half picks their daughter up. He blows her belly with raspberries, which results in a giggle that would make a smile crack anyone. Then, Josh suddenly didn’t do anything. And as soon as Stella saw it, there was no going back. She had everybody to show.
Was This A Joke?
Stella is in her tracks, frozen. It had to be a joke, right? She watches her husband from a secret hidden camera, and she can’t believe her eyes. Why would he have done this? She knew that she needed to show people. No one was watching him, he thought, but he wasn’t going to get away with it that easily!
Just Goofing Around
Stella’s two kids in the living room could be seen in the video, goofing around. In its bouncer, the baby jumps up and down to the beat. Meanwhile, the TV is loudly blasting a lyrical video that Perry released as a single in 2011, which is Katy Perry’s number one smash hit “E.T.,”
With the music turned up to full volume while waving a pair of brightly colored pom-poms around to the music, the older girl stands in front of the TV while her baby sister bounces up and down in her stroller. The children are having fun. Dad, however, is about to step in, unknown to them.
Stella’s husband is seen in the distance, walking, holding a box. He places the box on the table and steps into the living room, watching the kids in the living room dancing. Instead of continuing with his chores, Stella is surprised to see him step straight into the shot and do something unexpected.
First, he leans down on his daughter and pushes his hands up and down in a jerking motion. Yeah, yeah, he’s doing a robot dance in the lounge… To the delight of both his sons. When their father approaches them, they can be heard giggling hysterically. Then, along with the album, he also starts lip-syncing, mimicking, “Boy, you’re an alien, your touch so foreign.”
After he finishes doing the robot dance, he ends with a pirouette-despite being quite a big guy. This incredible dad is still able to pull off some incredibly graceful dance moves. While most of the father’s movements are traditional “dad” dance moves, it just makes the whole video all the more endearing for those who have seen it.
However, Dad doesn’t just dance with his eldest daughter. He sidles up to the baby with the baby bouncing, leaning in, and grooving in time. The baby likes the show as well. The baby grins with joy as her dad makes silly faces as he dances along with the music.
At one point, the oldest daughter hands her dad her red pom-poms. He takes one and twirls it around, but the girl insists that he must dance for each of them. He demonstrates his stupid dance steps, making his kids scream with laughter. He takes the other pom-pom and goes through an amazing and sassy cheerleader routine!
Busting Move Moves
Then the daughter takes back one of the pom-poms, with the pair continuing to twirl them around, carrying one each. The song continues, and so does Dad. Dad proceeds to shake and twirl the pom-pom, making hilarious gestures, as Katy Perry’s song lowers the beat and hits a crescendo.
The Mic Drop
As the song gets close to an end, the dad drops a pom-pom – the epic mic drop becomes one of the best moves we’ve seen in the film. Then he stops and casually leaves the living room and returns to his chores, unaware that his dance routine has been caught on-camera…
The viral video shows that while hidden cameras are frequently used to spy on people or for more sinister reasons, it is also possible to catch some wholesome moments. And, unsurprisingly, most of those remarks reflected an outpouring of love and affection for the loving parent. It seems unlikely not to like the heartwarming video.
He Loves His Kids
“The best dad of the year award goes to whoever he is,” commented Suzannah Danielle, a Youtube user. Gabriel Klopp agreed that this man is a “dad who loves his kids!” One thing is certain that these kids have an incredible dad who is down to earth and loves to make them laugh.
When Stella originally set up the hidden camera in her living room, she had only expected to be able to keep an eye on things and maybe capture a few cute videos of her kids. Instead, she got something even better: her husband demonstrated what a devoted father he was. Indeed, this is a clip she’ll cherish forever!
Caught On Camera
However, thanks to Stella’s hidden camera, the entire dance performance is not just as he and his children had thought. Not that the video has anything to be embarrassed about. When Stella saw the footage, she was at first alarmed. Then, a smile spread across her face. She knew she had to share her husband’s antics with the world.
The video that made the rounds on YouTube was “Mom Finds out How Dad Watches the Kids.” Some audiences have complained that this title was misleading because they were expecting something less wholesome. “Am I the only one who thought this was going to be bad?” asked Jace Bailiff. Viddi Kaddi wrote, “From the title, I thought this guy was a child abuser. BOY, WAS I WRONG.”
Stella uploaded the video on Facebook, and it received a lot of attention. Then, Mike Jordan uploaded the footage to YouTube with the comment, “He has the dance moves of a goat having a seizure, but the kids like it,” Since the video was shared in September 2015, it has received 28,000 likes, more than two million views, and it has received over 5,000 comments. But this isn’t the first time it’s happened.
Not The Only One
Stella’s husband’s unabashed dancing with his kids is not the only time something like this has been caught on camera. Lisa Roth uploaded a video entitled, “Hidden camera captures dad and daughter dancing to Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” on YouTube in May 2016. And again, it showed a devoted father doing all he could to keep his daughter amused. But some decidedly disturbing moments have been caught on hidden cameras, too…
Sick To His Stomach
Joe, traumatized, is frozen in his tracks. This is a joke, huh? He’s watching the footage he secretly recorded last night, and his heart is racing. It was like watching his favorite horror film, but it wasn’t a slasher from Hollywood; it was his life. For days, he had been waiting for this moment, finally finding out the truth about his missing food and finally having proof. But something left a sick feeling in his stomach. He knew that he had to run for it, that he had to go far. But time had run out.
A New York Dream
Joe Cummings spent two years living in Manhattan. It is not easy to be an actor by day and a waiter by night in a city that never sleeps. But there was no other place Joe would prefer to live, despite overcrowding, living costs, and less-than-friendly individuals. He’d been dreaming about the Big Apple all his life, and now he’s finally there! Things may not have been perfect career-wise for Joe, but there was a great apartment, a great girlfriend, and great friends for the budding actor! He was living a dream. But Joe’s world turned upside-down one day.
An Expensive City
The fact that New York was an expensive city to live in was well known to Joe. Joe did his best to save money. So when he began to have to shop more often, he became worried because the food in his fridge and pantry was quickly gone. His routine did not change, so he had no reason to eat more than usual. But another person was living with him who might know the answer.
A New Chapter In Their Lives
Joe’s girlfriend, Lucy, moved to his apartment recently. On cloud nine, there were two lovebirds, and this was a new chapter in their lives. But this problem with the missing food started to gnaw at Joe. Why was his girlfriend going to get his food? Why wasn’t she just asking? Joe knew he had to ask Lucy about the food that was missing. He hoped she wasn’t going to be insulted, but he needed answers. After all, he wasted his hard-earned wages by buying more food, not to mention saving for Lucy’s engagement ring.
A Noise In The Night
One night, while Joe and Lucy were sleeping, Joe heard strange noises coming from the kitchen: a thump on the floor, a creaking door, steps. His heart started pounding. Who was the house inside? Joe was unable to tell in his sleep if it was real or if he was dreaming. However, the next morning, when some of the food was gone the night before, he realized he had to act quickly. But when the truth came to light, Joe’s whole world turned upside down.
The Morning After
The following morning, Joe poured himself a glass of orange juice and confronted his girlfriend about the food that was missing. To his surprise, she denied everything. Joe didn’t want to call his girlfriend a liar, but he knew something strange was happening. Maybe she was a sleepwalker without knowing it. Heck, maybe he was! Nevertheless, the only way to know for sure was to get proof, but what Joe would soon find would leave him feeling sick to his stomach.
Could It Be An Animal?
Shortly after, another idea came to Joe. Perhaps an animal had come in and stolen the food? But that seemed improbable. Because his neighborhood was not exactly the safest in New York, he always locked all the doors and windows at night. Not to mention that the food in the refrigerator was gone, and he knew that no creature could open the refrigerator doors. Something or someone else must have been it. Joe had enough to speculate about it – it was time to act. But Joe didn’t know what was coming.
Setting Up The Camera
Joe came to town with determination and purchased a security camera with night vision. He installed it near the corner roof of the kitchen, ensuring that the corner had an unobstructed view of the fridge and pantry. He knew he wouldn’t tell his girlfriend that, if it were her, he might catch her in the act. He pressed the record, and his day continued. But he removed the memory card the next morning and prepared himself to learn the truth finally. But he wasn’t mentally prepared, it turned out.
Normal At First
The video starts quite normally. It’s late at night, and Joe is getting ready for his girlfriend to go to bed. They laugh and fight before turning all the lights off and leaving the kitchen. No movement will occur for the next two hours, except for lights coming in from the street. Then something begins to stir. And nothing could have prepared Joe for what he was about to see.
This Had To Be A Joke?
Joe couldn’t utter a word. It has to be a joke, right? His friends might have pulled a prank on him. He is once again watching the footage. And with each glance, he feels sick. This was not what he’d expected to see. How might that be possible? From this, there was no coming back. No way at all.
Hundreds Of Questions
The woman, which Joe thought was his girlfriend, leaves her hiding place on a table, crawls, and stabilizes. Then she reaches out and grabs a nearby step that she uses to jump to the ground. When he was watching this woman, he had a feeling that she had done this before. His mind was full of questions as he tried to comprehend why his girlfriend would go through all this trouble. The woman then looks up at the camera, and Joe can see her face as clear as daylight. It’s not his girlfriend.
Joe had not seen the woman in the video before! Joe felt sick to his stomach, but he had to watch closely, he knew. Joe is watching the woman, as comfortable as if she were hers, go around the kitchen. She opens the fridge door, snatches a bottle of orange juice, and drinks it straight out of the box. She then walks and urinates up to the sink. Joe is watching the nightmare unfold, but more horror has been revealed.
What Was Going On?
The woman can be seen nestled on Joe’s couch, nibbling when she hears a noise from the bedroom at one point in the video. Surprised, she enters Joe’s kitchen and hides in it. Then Joe shows up and goes into the refrigerator for a glass of water. A few minutes after their departure, the woman returns and resumes snacking. What has been going on? It takes hours, but Joe can’t keep the footage away from his eyes. Who is this woman?
Finishing The Footage
Joe watches as the morning light begins to crawl into his flat, then the woman crawls back into the storage area. He sees himself entering the kitchen shortly afterward, dressed in everyday clothes. He opens the fridge just like a woman a few hours ago and drinks the juice straight out of the box! Until the end, Joe finishes watching the footage, and he’s frozen in his tracks, trying to understand what he’s seen right now. Potentially, an unknown intruder could always hide just a couple of feet from him.
Someone In Their House
Joe felt a mix of terror and relief – after all, the footage proved he wasn’t crazy. Someone had stolen his food. But it wasn’t his girlfriend, as he had thought from the beginning. Something much worse was this. A strange woman was hiding in the kitchen storage room in their apartment, only a few steps away from the bedroom. He had to get out of there quickly.
Going To The Cops
Joe picked up his laptop and got out of the apartment in a hurry. He ran to the police station to explain what had occurred and to show them the footage. He proclaimed: “I do not know how she got there. The only way to get in is through the window because I’m on the top floor, and there’s an escape route.” Thankfully, the cops understood Joe’s concerns and escorted him home, where they could arrest the woman. However, what they discovered only made him even more petrified.
The Truth Is Out
After questioning the woman, the police discovered that she had been hiding in Joe’s apartment for over two weeks! He posted the terrifying video on YouTube, where he quickly went viral once the ordeal had ended. And while many doubt the validity of Joe’s tale, it’s not a bad idea to regularly check your storage space: you never know what might be hiding there, as Tracy from South Carolina was about to find out…
Crazier Than Fiction
It was like a real horror movie. Part of her even wondered if she had a very lucid nightmare. There was no other way for her to explain what was occurring. But it’s not fiction. He was there at home, for who knows how long, without any clue. And when all the implications of this reality began to develop for her, she could not help but panic.
Pillar Of The Family
Even before this incident, life had not been easy for Tracy. She was a single mother of five and lived in Rock Hill, South Carolina. During her life, she struggled to make ends meet and provide for her family. Some of her kids were now grown, but all of them lived together to lower the family home’s cost. Despite their circumstances, they lived a happy family life. But then, something started to happen that threatened all that.
The Sounds Of The Floor
One day in September, Tracy began hearing odd noises coming from the attic. She thought maybe there was an intruder, but she was always wary of locking all the doors and windows. She did it as a precaution because they lived in a poor part of the town, and burglaries were quite common. She saw no sign of forced entry whatsoever and thought it was all her imagination. But she soon began wondering if anything else was going on.
