In the comments section, ‘Wiredrat’ said that the balloon belongs to a girl called Raquel, who is believed to be his daughter.

The girl has named the freaky balloon ‘Queen Bee’, but thinks that it “looks like a lost soul”.

The netizen also shared photos of the scary balloon peering around a doorway and sitting on a step.

‘Wiredrat’ quipped: “So many views of the [viral] video have left Queen Bee tired. She needs to rest for a bit.”

Netizen ‘ElSant0’ said: “For me, the problem is not that it walks down the stairs, but that turns around like a person. Scary!”

‘ILoPeralbo’ commented: “I bought one of these for my daughter once. The next day, I went into the bathroom and it was there looking at me. I almost had a heart attack, thinking there was someone in there with me.”

‘JUKspn’ wrote: “This is truly disturbing. Wait until it loses gas and starts to screech, you will run away in panic!”
