Harry Potter - Book of Mormon Mash Up

In lieu of all the Harry Potter hoopla, I'd like to post this very clever mash-up of Harry Potter and Book of Mormon. It's creatively done by former Billy Elliot ballet girl Tessa Netting, singing the opening song, Hello from the Book of Mormon to introduce the Harry Potter characters. Check out the details that she adds to each character:

  • Hermione cutting her hair like Emma Watson
  • Harry wearing the bow tie and doing dance steps from How To Succeed as well as an Equus reference
  • Ron saying "Hermione can't draw" a reference from A Very Potter Musical
  • Luna with a lion hat
  • Dumbledore with a "blackened" hand
  • Hagrid with a dragon
  • Snape singing Snape, Snape Severus Snape from Potter Puppet Pals
  • Voldemort tweeting, a reference to a very funny twitter page Lord_Voldemort7
  • Ms. Weasley holding out a Billy Elliot playbill as Julie Walters who plays Ms. Weasley was also Mrs. Wilkinson in the Billy Elliot film
Best lyric: If you read this book and not twilight you will be ok (in around 2:15). What a remarkable feat! Tessa Netting you are a genius!
