Every so often, when you least expect it, art and pop-culture will collide to make something incredible. A few months ago I was introduced to such a collision, and it is awesome.
Its called Wizard People, Dear Readers
If you've never heard of it, its a separate audio track you play while watching Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's [or Philosopher's] Stone. Sort of like a Rifftrax, except for this the movie is muted and the story is re-told completely through the new audio.
And it is funny. The story is completely ripped to shreds. Hermione becomes an attention-starved hideous creature, Snape becomes a woman, Harry is godlike but battles alcoholism and depression, and a lot of other changes that are better left as surprises. The premise is that this is a book on tape, based on a book written by a guy who watched the movie and had no idea what was going on, in a sense.
All of this is done by Brad Neely
. You've probably seen some of his work before.
Below is the first portion of it from youtube, but it is using older audio and its not synced properly. I highly recommend you download the audio HERE
and play it as it was intended. Best viewed with a group of friends, some who love HP and others who despise it.
Has anyone else watched this before?
