Wizard Week: Silly Song Spoofs

It seems I'm not the only one excited for the new Harry Potter movie.  I can't log in to Facebook anymore without seeing that so-and-so posted a Harry Potter this... or what's-his-face commented on a Harry Potter that...  The obsession seems to have bitten us all!

A lot of the fun videos my friends are sharing are spoofs on popular songs.  My friend Trevor and my cousin Tyisa both told me about this music video by Brigham Young University's Divine Comedy.  It's called "Firebolt" and it's based on the Katy Perry song, "Firework."

Another video I've come across was mentioned by sisters Mikell and Madison.  It's based on the song "Friday" by Rebecca Black, and it's really pretty hilarious.  It's done by The Hillywood Show.

And just yesterday I saw two of my friends, Wes and Jason, had both posted this fun version of the song "Hello" from the Broadway musical, The Book of Mormon.  I watched this one from my phone on break, and it was definitely the highlight of my 14-hour workday!

Ha ha!  I love that Harry Potter is wearing a blue bow tie like Daniel Radcliffe wears in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.  He also lovingly caresses a stuffed horse and then stabs it to death just like Daniel Radcliffe's role in Equus.  And Hermione disappears and then reappears with short hair just like the real-life Emma Watson.

I hope these silly song spoofs made your day!

These are hilarious!! I didn't know The Hillywood Show made another HP spoof, but I love it. It's even better than the last. Oh, and I LOVE the BYU divine comedy one so much! I'm super excited for tomorrow.

I know it's an older spoof, but there's a song called "Like it's Quidditch" based on "Like a G6"
