I am completely terrified, enthralled, and perplexed by the DEAR DAVID Twitter stream being penned by New York writer Adam Ellis. He is known on Twitter as Moby_Dickhead.  And suddenly he is captivating publications all over the world..

It began in August. He said he had a dream about a boy with half of a head.. He said his apartment in NYC was being haunted by a dead boy. . . At some point he learned that the boy’s name was David. Dear David, actually. And you could only ask him two questions. If you asked a third, he would desire to kill you.

Adam Ellis asked a third..

And the rest became a Twitter stream of nightmare potential.

His cats got involved, as he

Just last week he revealed this photograph, which he said shows Dear David staring at him from across his bedroom:

The last update was last week. Nothing since then.

There are currently 559,000 or so followers who have been watching the accounts of Moby Dickhead. Waiting for another enthralling update.. waiting for another photo. Another glimpse into the apartment of the haunted New York city dweller.

And YES! Many people have said how it’s fake! It’s a fraud! It’s a hoax!
…that’s the fun. It’s fun because even if it is a fake or fraud, the hat has not been tipped yet by Ellis. He’s going with it.. watching the worldwide attention.. And if fake, enjoying every minute. If real? He should really think about moving as soon as possible.

This story has Slenderman potential! With the attention Dear David is getting, there are two possibilities: It’s fake and it’s a new version of promoting an amazing horror story/ or it’s real and SHOULD be made into a movie.

Regardless of the intentions of Ellis, it’s thoroughly enjoyable.

…and somehow is penetrating pop culture.
The other day my son, now in the 1st grade, came home and told me about Dear David.
The kids know. The adults do too.

ADAM ELLIS. Stay safe.
