Clever parody inducts fans into the cult of Harry Potter via The Book Of Mormon

Trey Parker and Matt Stone broke into Broadway musicals this year with enormous success, snapping up nine Tony Awards for The Book of Mormon. Now, with the final Harry Potter film about to be released this week, an intrepid Potter fan has taken Mormon’s opening number “Hello” and rewritten it as a musical number where Harry Potter characters introduce their book series. The parallels between religion and fandom made apparent by this particular song choice are a little creepy, but the Hollywood Squares split-screen style—with one girl playing the main trio, Hagrid, Snape, Dumbledore, and more—lightens the mood a bit.
