Avatar Image says:

I have to agree, air73. Bothering Snape has me rolling every time. In fact, when I want to aggravate someone cranky, I say, “Let’s go bother Snape!” Nearly everyone in the room always knows what I am talking about, and starts laughing in anticipation, or they start singing “Snape, Snape, Severus Snape, Dumbledore!”

Avatar Image says:

Bother! Bother! Bother! Bother! Bother! Bother! Bother! Bother! Bother! Bother! Bother! Bother! Avada Kedavra!

Doh..we missed Ron…

Voldermont, Voldermont, voldie voldie voldie Voldermont Voldermont

Seriously, we have to stop this! Personally, I thought the David Blaine vid was the funniest. But the puppets are of course very funny too. I kinda enjoying this Easter break ;)

Avatar Image says:

Voldemort, not Voldermont ;)

Avatar Image says:

Bizzarely amusing. Way to go!

Avatar Image says:

The best one is WIZARD SWEARS! Funniest thing I have ever seen EVER!

Avatar Image says:

I have 8 seconds of it as my alarmclock sound (IKEA Slabang), you can record you’re own sound with this. :D

Ooh voldy voldy voldy voldemort :p

Avatar Image says:

My hubby, who is not into HP at all, even goes around the house singing “Snape, Snape, Severus Snape.” It is my all-time favorite video. “Very catchy.”

Avatar Image says:

yeah the first time i watched it i was stuck in my head forever. Its really funny i didnt even know youtube gave awards

Avatar Image says:

Oh I love Neville as the potato

Avatar Image says:

HEHEHEAHAHAHA hilarious

Avatar Image says:

crap diddnt mean to post that 2 times

Avatar Image says:

Am I the only one who thinks these are incredibly stupid and so NOT funny?

Avatar Image says:

Woooohooo!!! Love this video!! Congrats Neil!!

Avatar Image says:

I love the Potter Puppet Pals! Hahaha, poor Harry’s such a git in all of them.

Congratulations, Neil!

Avatar Image says:

‘What. is. this. RUMPOUS?’

Hehe. I say that a lot. :D

Avatar Image says:

I wonder what Jo thinks? I bet she’d laugh.

Avatar Image says:

“Am I the only one who thinks these are incredibly stupid and so NOT funny?” – K

Probably, but that’s ok. To each their own I suppose.

I heart PPP. I’ve been watching them since the beginning. I just think it would be SOOOOOOOOOOO cool if the cast did this as a DVD extra. Although Michael Gambon (sorry if it’s misspelled) doesn’t need to be naked. I say we should “bother” Dan’s, Rupert’s, and Emma’s boards and tell them to do this. Hopefully they can rope in Alan, Michael, and who ever plays Voldy.

Avatar Image says:

Ron, ROn, Ron Weasley! I’m so glad I voted for it! IT ROCKS HARD!

Avatar Image says:

I was shown the PotterPuppet Pals one night when I went to go babysit last summer. I was oddly disturbed that the little kids who I had been a nanny for for years (and still think of as 3 and 4 but who are now in the 4th and 5th grade) showed me these videos. But the second I saw them I couldn’t stop laughing. The second I got back to California, I showed my roommate. Anytime we say the word “Ooh” we both have to follow it up with “Harry Potter! Ooh!”

Love you Potter Puppet Pals!

Avatar Image says:

Yeah, it’s hilarious. - It can be a bit Potter-racistic. But, it still great! (;

Avatar Image says:

I love potter puppet pals, and they really deserve it. It really annoys me though that people who aren’t fans have started singing it all the time. I’ve heard people who’ve made fun of hp before singing it randomnly at school. i know it shouldn’t really bother me, but it does. i know. i’m weird.

What a wonderfully cracked idea. We can dream, can’t we?

< tries to imagine Ralph Fiennes agreeing to this > < fails >

Avatar Image says:

Oh, and by the way: 243 days! Woo-hoo!

Avatar Image says:

I don’t usually go to YouTube, but this was worth it! “Mysterious Ticking Sound” was great! And their version of my all time favorite: ‘Bohemian Rapsody’.....EXCELLENT

Avatar Image says:

BTW! I LOVED Voldemort with hair! TOOOOO funny. :D

Avatar Image says:

@Mountain Violet: It wouldn’t be that odd for Ralph Fiennes to sing. I don’t know whether you ever saw The Prince of Egypt? It’s an animated film and Fiennes does the voice of pharaoh Ramses II. He actually has to sing but his singing capaceties are, erm, modest. ( Well, he does try ;D )

Avatar Image says:

Oh, it wasn’t Mr. Fiennes’ singing abilities I was questioning; it was his willingness to participate in such silliness. ;)

Avatar Image says:

I loooove them… PPP are awesome! Mysterious ticking noise gets stuck in my head and my another favourite, Wizard Angst had me in hysterics when I first saw it.

“Harry Potter, Harry Potter UH Harry Potter, Harry Potter YEAH Harry Potter, Harry Potter UH Harry Potter, Harry Potter – that’s me!”

“My parents are dead, my life sucks, I can’t held down a girlfriend and I’m surrounded by peep goblins and peep all the time. I mean what the peep?

“What’s Harry doing..? -ANGSTANGSTANGST.”

“Ron invaded my personal bubble!”

I mean they’re all pretty classic, aren’t they?

Avatar Image says:

Congrats Neil!

I need to make The Mysterious Ticking Noise my ringtone – it’d be hilarious.

....BOTHA!

Ron, Ron, Ron WEASLEY, Ron, Ron, Ron WEASLEY

Avatar Image says:

i love it. i’m so glad they won!

at school last year, me and my friends made a performance out of it, where each person did a different character. actions included. it spread through the school really quickly, and it drove practically all the math teachers mad. (we had a habit of doing on the way to maths class)

(Snape, Snape, Severus Sanpe!)

Avatar Image says:

We ran around singing it in Berlin last year, such cool song:P

Avatar Image says:

haha!! congrats!! at a retreat i went to they did skits and one group did this one and like everyone watching on the bleachers just started singing along and dancing… it was amaZing and everyone @ my school sings it and all someone has to do is say snape snape in the middle of class and everyone will join in… even some of the tearchers have seen it and will sing along because i showed everyone and now its like a craze =] well earned

Avatar Image says:

Just a warning to parents – I watched a bunch of these with my kids and most were ok but there was some unexpected use of the F word and other obscenties. Maybe those have been weeded out or bleeped out by now but I suggest pre-screening if you don’t want your kids to hear that kind of stuff. That said, I think these are hysterical and love the Mysterious Ticking Noise. Congrats to the Puppet Pals!

Avatar Image says:

snape! harry! snape! harry! snape! harry! snape! harry! snape! harry! snape! harry! DUMBLEDORE!

ahahahahaha wipes tear from eye They deserved that award.

But my favourite one is Wizard Swears. That one’s just too funny for words.

Avatar Image says:

Cordelia – you are right, some of the other similar videos are awful. They are not all by the same person though. Neil Cicierega’s work is funny and almost entirely family-friendly. Even the “Wizard Swears” video is ok for my 10-year old. It doesn’t get much spicier than “cauldron bum”. But i made sure i watched it myself first, just in case, since you never know what you’re going to get on the internet.

Avatar Image says:

OH I AM SOOOOOOOO HAPPY!!!!!!! I love this. My friends and I sing it during school and it annoys our teachers but our classmates think it is hilarious!!!!! Go NEIL!!!!! I found out the news yesterday on the morning show ‘Sunrise’! They put on the video and everyone was laughing….even my parents!!!!!

‘Snape, Snape, Severus Snape. DUMBLEDORE!!!’ hehe…..so funny!!!!

Avatar Image says:
