Some people say that kids can see things that adults can't, like angels, ghosts and demons, and the Internet is believing it after watching a video now going viral.
The clip stars Maya, a happy two-year-old who loves peanut butter and Cookie Monster. Her dad, Ryan, started filming her because she was acting silly but at the end of the video, Maya's smile fades and she is clearly disturbed. She points and says, "Daddy, spooky."
Maya was just being silly, eating some peanut butter bread, and she suddenly pointed and said, “That’s spooky.” 😳 Time to move. pic.twitter.com/WfxvHl4Z9E— Ryan Dalton (@capetownbrown) March 10, 2018
Ryan told Buzzfeed that he and his wife don't use the word spooky but Maya's cousins do to describe something scary. As for whatever the girl was pointing at, Dalton explained it was in a dark room since the sun hadn't yet risen.
The Internet is shook:
The more I look at this video the more I'm genuinely concerned . How she moved back like " oh hell naw "— ¢híll rapper (@CHRISxJETSFOO) March 11, 2018
It looked like whatever she saw was funny & vibing with her at first, then did something off the wall, and she was like pic.twitter.com/9dtTJzY1zT— Mara (@mara__iara) March 11, 2018

Other people shared stories about their kids seeing things that will ensure you have nightmares tonight:
My friends brother was putting her nephew to bed one night, and he said to her brother “daddy why is that lady sad” and he asked “what lady” and her nephew goes “the one in the corner”... Creepiest thing ever— Kat (@PartKat) March 11, 2018
Move. We had weird stuff at my old house. As soon as he could talk, my son asked abt “the neighbors” in his room who came out at night. He’d stare at a corner of his room like yours did. He’d sleep w/his arms under him bc he said the neighbors bothered his hands in the dark.— (((Rimonima))) (@rimonima) March 11, 2018
I was baby sitting once and this kid was waving at something behind me, i asked who she was saying hi to and she pointed at the lamp behind me, I looked at it and it just started flickering. I picked the baby up, went outside,and stayed in my car 😭 https://t.co/9eIfM5wlKI— MonicaLaire (@MonicaLaire) March 11, 2018
Since his story blew up, Dalton answered some of the common questions people had:
Some follow-up, answering some questions people have:— Ryan Dalton (@capetownbrown) March 12, 2018
1. I didn’t pan over because there wasn’t anything (seeable to me) over there. I hadn’t started filming to capture some paranormal stuff, I was just trying to film Maya being silly. I definitely panned my head over there.
2. Some people are saying there’s a weird noise (like a baby laughing) in the background. It’s a bird that’s been spazzing out outside our window for the past few days. Mating season?— Ryan Dalton (@capetownbrown) March 12, 2018
And if you're wondering, Maya does eat the bread too, she just licks the peanut butter off it first.
