Funny Video Imagines Harry Potter as the Villain

You're a villain, Harry.

Move over, Voldemort, there's a new villain in the wizarding world--and it's none other than Harry Potter.

That's the message of this funny new video from BloodBlitzComedy called "If Harry Potter Was The Villain." Watch the video below to see how things would be different if the boy who lived was actually the boy who lived and then turned evil. It's quite funny, and the last image of Potter is pretty chilling.

The video splices together footage from the various Harry Potter movies and mashes up dialogue to make Harry Potter look like the bad guy. One of my favorite lines comes from Dumbledore, who says: "It is not in the nature of Harry Potter to be forgiving." Of course, that line was originally meant to describe Dementors.

Harry Potter will live on through a spinoff called Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the name of an in-universe Hogwarts textbook being adapted by J.K. Rowling for the big-screen. Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne will play the lead role of Newt Scamander in the movie, which recently began shooting.
