Fun Friday: “This Is Not Harry Potter,” from the Vlogbrothers


Nov 18, 2010

Posted by EdwardTLC

It has been a wild, clip-filled lead up to the theatrical release of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1,” but it would not be complete without a Vlogbrothers song capturing our feelings before the midnight release of this, the second to the last Potter film. Hank Green of the Vlogbrothers does not disappoint! Watch This is Not Harry Potter below:

This video also launches (a day early) Leaky’s newest feature Fun Fridays, where we will highlight a new, cool, funny, or interesting thing created created by the Harry Potter fan community. This could be anything from a funny spoof on YouTube, a particulary clever cartoon, or something awesome created by our community. If you come across something that fits that description, email us at [email protected] and it may end up on a Fun Friday soon!

Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: cool videoAvatar ImageLemonFaerie says: I came home from the midnight release emotionally worn out (FABULOUS MOVIE!!!! No spoilers, but just... WOW), and a bit depressed because after all the lead up, it's over. Part one is finally here and we only have one more to look forward to (new countdown clock, please! LOL), but this was the PERFECT thing to cheer the evening right up, the perfect song to come home to after the film. Thanks, Hank! And Leaky!Avatar ImageLemonFaerie says: Wait, why is it not on iTunes yet??? *sigh*Avatar ImageHiren58 says: OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I saw the midnight premiere yesterday!!! AWESOME AWESOME MOVIE!!!! MY FAV...don't want to spoil it though but BOY was that ever entertaining!! Hoever....The thing I hate about the movie is that it ends half-way through the full story.......and I was like along with everyone else when they saw the end credits...NOOOO!!!!! so its cruel to have to wait 8 months for the second half...but it will be totally worth it...I'd give the movie 4.5 stars out of five and think this may be tied with Philosopher's Stone for my all-time fav Potter movie.....( i posted this hear b/c there is no where else yet.....) Avatar Imagemew5645 says: omg thats cool!!!!!Avatar ImageMaryMalfoy says: When the movie ended I was just extremely pissed that I couldn't watch Part 2 immediately. The movie as a whole was great though, despite the things they added/left out. I'm seeing it again tonight! Should be fun :D Also, Hank needs to write much more HP songs. I love him <3Avatar Imagemew5645 says: wow that was fun-ny !!!!Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: It's the first film I've been to where, when the audience realised it was finishing, they went ooooh! and then applauded the names of the director and actors as they appeared in the credits.Avatar ImageSwedishHufflepuff says: Saw the premiere wednesday here in Sweden.
