Why Would He Do This?
Stella is frozen in her tracks. Watching her husband’s secret footage of him and their 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. They welcomed their daughter Emma and son Ben in 2015 and 2019. 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. He 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 was beginning to act 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
Usually, Josh was 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 a room for their eldest daughter, Emma. What has he been doing? Stella looked around at her clock. It was around 3:45 in the morning. 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. She did not tell her husband about it for some odd reason 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 had no idea what was coming.
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 began in the living room with footage of her two children. Stella smiles to herself as she watches her beloved children dance around to a song on TV. Josh looked like he was doing laundry in the background, but suddenly, he appeared in the shot. What he did next changed it all. In just a few minutes, her husband’s true colors were revealed.
Not What She Expected
Stella watches as her 15-year-old husband picks her 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 to show everyone.
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 infant sibling bounces up and down in her stroller. Children are having fun. But, unknown to them, Dad is about to step in.
Stella’s husband is seen in the background, walking, carrying a box. He puts the box on the table and walks into the living room, noticing the kids in the living room dancing. Instead of continuing with his chores, Stella is shocked to see him walk right into the shot and do something entirely unexpected.
First, he leans down on his daughter and moves his hands up and down with a jerking motion. Yeah yeah, he’s doing a robot dance in the room to the delight of both his kids. As their father approaches them, they can be heard giggling hysterically. Then, he even begins to lip-sync along with the song, miming, “Boy, you’re an alien, your touch so foreign.”
After he’s done the robot dance, he ends with a pirouette. And despite being quite huge, this amazing dad can still pull off some surprisingly 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, the 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 calmly 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, honestly.
He Loves His Kids
A youtube user named Suzannah Danielle commented, “The best dad of the year award goes to whoever he is.” Gabriel Klopp agreed that this man is a “dad who loves his kids!” One thing is certain these kids have an amazing dad who likes to make them laugh and is down to earth.
When Stella first set up the hidden camera in her living room, she had just wanted to be able to keep an eye on things and maybe catch 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 treasure forever!
Caught On Camera
Thanks to Stella’s hidden camera, however, the whole dance performance is not just as he had thought between him and his kids. Not that the video has something to be ashamed about. When Stella saw the video, she was at first alarmed. Then a grin spread over her face. She knew she had to share her husband’s antics with the world.
“Mom Finds out How Dad Watches the Kids” was the video that made the rounds on YouTube.Some viewers have complained that this title was deceptive because they expected something opposite of what the video contained. “Am I the only one who thought this was going to be bad?” Jace Bailiff asked. Vidi Kaddi wrote, “From the title, I thought this guy was a child abuser. BOY, WAS I WRONG.”
The video was uploaded on Facebook by Stella, and it got a lot of attention. Then, with the comment, “He has the dance moves of a goat having a seizure, but the kids like it,” The video was posted to YouTube by Mike Jordan. Since the video was posted in September 2015, it has received 28,000 likes, more than two million views, and 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 children is not the first time anything like this has been captured on video. Lisa Roth uploaded a video titled, “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 everything he could to keep his daughter amused. But some decidedly terrifying moments have been captured on hidden cameras too.
Sick To His Stomach
Joe, traumatized, is frozen in his tracks. He’s watching the video he secretly filmed last night, and his heart is pounding. It was like watching his favorite horror film, except 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 evidence. Yet something left a sick feeling in his stomach. He knew that he had to run for it, that he had to go fast. However, the 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 choose to live, amid overcrowding, living expenses, and less-than-friendly individuals. He’d been dreaming all his life in the Big Apple, and now he’s there! Things may not have been fine career-wise for Joe, but there was a lovely apartment, a great girlfriend, and great friends for the aspiring actor! He was living a dream. Yet Joe’s world turned upside-down one day.
An Expensive City
It was well known to Joe that New York was an expensive city to live in. Joe tried his best to save money, but he could, for a tiny studio apartment, from $5 coffee to $1000 rent. And when he began to have to shop more frequently, he became concerned because the food in his fridge and pantry was quickly gone. His routine did not shift, so he had no excuse to eat more than usual. But another person was living with him who could know the answer.
A New Chapter In Their Lives
Lucy, Joe’s girlfriend, moved to his apartment recently. On cloud nine, there were two lovebirds, and this was a new beginning in their lives. But this issue 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 realized he had to remind 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 salary by buying more food, not to mention saving for Lucy’s commitment ring.
A Noise In The Night
One night, when Joe and Lucy were sleeping, Joe heard odd noises coming from the kitchen: a thump on the floor, a creaking lock, steps. His heart started beating. Who was the house inside? Joe was unable to say in his sleep, whether it was real or if he was dreaming. The next morning, though, when some of the food that was there the night before was gone, he knew he had to act quickly. But when the facts came to light, Joe’s entire world turned upside down.
The Morning After
The next morning Joe poured himself a glass of orange juice and confronted his girlfriend about the food that was missing. To his surprise, she rejected everything. Joe didn’t want to call his girlfriend a liar, but he realized something strange was happening. Maybe she was a sleepwalker without understanding it. Heck, maybe he was! Nevertheless, the only way to know for sure was to get evidence, but what Joe would soon find would leave him feeling sick to his stomach.
Could It Be An Animal?
Shortly after, an idea came to Joe. Perhaps an animal had come in and eaten the food? But that seemed improbable. Since his neighborhood was not necessarily the safest in New York, he still 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 surveillance camera with night vision. He built it near the corner roof of the kitchen, ensuring that the corner had an unobstructed view of the fridge and pantry. He realized he wouldn’t warn his girlfriend because he would catch her in the act if it were her. He pressed the record, and his day began. But the next morning, he removed the memory card and prepared to discover the truth eventually. But as it turns out, he wasn’t mentally prepared.
Normal At First
The video starts very typically. 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 activity can 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 is speechless. That must be a joke, right? The prank his friends had pulled had to be a prank. He is once again watching the video. And with each look, he feels sick. This was not what he’d expected to see. How would that be possible? There was no coming back from this. 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 leap to the ground. When he was watching this lady, he had a feeling that she had done this before. His mind was full of questions as he tried to understand why his girlfriend would go through all this trouble. Then the woman looks up at the camera, and Joe sees her face as plain as the light of day. It wasn’t his girlfriend.
The woman is nothing but a stranger in the video! Joe felt sick to his stomach, so he had to observe, he knew. Joe is watching the woman, as relaxed 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 refrigerator. She then walks and urinates up to the sink. Joe is watching the nightmare unfold, but more horror has been uncovered.
What Was Going On?
The woman can be seen nestled on Joe’s sofa, 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 continues snacking. What has been going on? It takes hours, but Joe can’t keep the video away from his eyes. Who was this woman?
Finishing The Footage
Joe watches as the morning light starts to creep into his flat, then the woman crawls back into the storage room. He sees himself entering the kitchen soon 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 video, and he’s stuck in his tracks, trying to grasp what he’s seen right now. Potentially, an unseen intruder might still hide only a couple of feet from him.
Someone In Their House
Joe felt a combination of terror and relief – after all, the video showed he wasn’t mad. Others had stolen his food. But it wasn’t his girlfriend, as he had felt from the beginning. Something even worse was this. A mysterious woman was hiding in the kitchen storage area in their apartment, just a few steps away from the bedroom. He had to get out of there quickly.
Going To The Cops
Joe picked up his computer and got out of the apartment in a hurry. He rushed to the police station to explain what was going on and show them the video. Joe said, “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.” Fortunately, the cops heard of Joe’s concerns and then escorted him back home, where the woman could be arrested. However, what they learned just made him even more petrified.
The Truth Is Out
After interviewing the woman, the police discovered that she had been hiding in Joe’s apartment for over two weeks! He posted the frightening video on YouTube, where after the ordeal had ended, he quickly went viral. And while many question the validity of Joe’s story, it’s not a bad idea to regularly search your storage space: you never know what could be hidden there, as Tracy from South Carolina was about to find out.
Crazier Than Fiction
It was like a real horror movie. Part of her always wondered if she had a 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 as all the ramifications of this fact started to evolve 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.
