'I'm tired of being scared of whatever is in your kid's creepy window,' the man wrote while sharing a haunting photo of what the cardboard cutout looks like from his home.

The nighttime image sees Kellie's house completely dark aside from the light on in her room, which makes it look like the cutout of Jensen is a hulking stranger lurking by her window. 

While sharing her neighbor's message and photo, Kellie tweeted: 'So the neighbor just sent my dad a message on Facebook...'

Unsurprisingly, there were plenty of Twitter users who were incredibly amused by Kellie's situation, and her post has been retweeted over 32,000 times.   

Some people even paid homage to her fandom by sharing memes featuring Jensen's Supernatural character, Dean.

Kellie told BuzzFeed News that she isn't sure how long the cutout has been bothering her neighbor, but she noted it has been in her window for months. 

'It was unintentional to scare the neighbor of course, it was just the best place to put it in my room,' she explained. 

Although she and her dad had a laugh about the situation, Kellie has since closed her blinds to appease her neighbor.
