Thanksgiving Footage: Day 1 is the eighteenth episode of TribeTwelve, and the 18th video of season 1. It was uploaded on February 1st, 2011.
For Thanksgiving, I drove to a viewer's house to spend the holiday. I remember having one of the greatest sleeps I've had in a long time that first night, I don't recall getting up as it shows on the tape.

Noah: Hey guys, it's Noah, it's the twenty-fifth of November 2010, Thanksgiving, and I'm just about to leave my house to go stay with one of my viewers who was kind enough to take me in. Her name is Sarah, um, AugmentedAngel on Twitter and Goodwin651 on YouTube. I am forever grateful for her for letting me stay, her house was the closest to mine, about a hundred-mile drive or so, and that's about how much my gas money could take me. I've talked to her over the phone, so she's very nice and I hope it all works out. as you could see, I'm obviously in a good mood because I get to leave this godforsaken house and be in somebody else's company for a change. So, I'd like to thank all of you out there who sent me messages offering to take me in, I really appreciate that, and I guess it turns out, I do have something to be thankful for: you guys! So, I don't wanna waste anymore time, I wanna get the hell out of here, so let's go.
Noah: This looks like the place.
Noah: [laughing] Oh, god... Hey!
Noah: Hey, Sarah. How you doing?
Sarah: What's up? I'm good.
Noah: [laughing] Is it okay if I film?
Sarah: Yeah, no problem.
Noah: [laughs] You're filming too. Uh, where can I put my stuff?
Sarah: Right over there on the chair.
Noah: Alright. I don't have much. You have a nice house.
Sarah: I know. I love it. It's huge.
Noah: Thanks again for letting me stay over.
Sarah: No problem.
Noah: Yeah. Gimme a hug, come here and gimme a hug, cause it's really nice that you did this for me.
Sarah: Heck yeah.
Noah: Heck yeah. Cause I really needed to get out of my house, and we're gonna have an awesome Thanksgiving, and everything's gonna be great.
Sarah: Oh, it's gonna be amazing.
Noah: So uh, what do we have for din-dins? Thanksgiving turkeys?
Noah: Okay, we just got finished eating Thanksgiving dinner, it was really good, I'm very full. Let's see what we have left, we have some gravy, some apple pie, and some stuffing, right now we're eating some vanila bean ice cream and it's really good. How you doing, Sarah?
Sarah: I'm doing great. I am so full. I ate like way too much.

Noah: Cause, I don't know how to thank you, but, all right.
Sarah: I'll see you in the morning.
Noah: Right. See you in the morning.
[Noah sets up to go to sleep on the couch. He sets the camera up to film him as he sleeps. There is momentary distortion and Noah is gone from the couch.]
[He returns a few moments later and lays back down. Distortion is intermittent. After a few moments, the static stops and Noah remains asleep.]
[The final frame of the video shows an image of the Observer, with the text: "IM HERE"]
- About 7:27 minutes in, Noah gets up from the couch. At about 7:28 the Observer can be seen peeking over the couch. Noah does not appear on screen until 7:32. The usual static and distortion associated with strange events occuring is observed. More static is seen at 7:38, after which he resumes sleeping.
- At the end of the video, a frame of the Observer looking at the camera is seen, along with the text 'I'M HERE'.
- There also appears to be something in the doorway behind the couch where Noah is sleeping, seen from 6:46 to 6:55. It is not clear if this is the Administrator or another entity.
