Turns out Potterheads from around the world are keeping Hermione's Society for the Promotion of Elfish Workers (S.P.E.W.) alive and running.
A photo of a curious thing happening at the London Warner Brothers Studios emerged on Twitter earlier this week.
Apparently, Harry Potter enthusiasts started donating their socks to free Dobby from his life of slavery and oppression.
Although it hasn't worked yet - the elf is still trapped in a glass cage and it doesn't look like he's going anywhere anytime soon - the fans of the story about the young wizard strongly believe it can be done one day.
Next time you're at Warner Bros., remember to bring your own sock for Dobby. He deserves it.
