Picture this: a prepubescent Harry Potter in New York City’s Penn Station with a cart full of luggage and his trusty owl, Hedwig. He’s trying to find platform 9 3/4 to get to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, but alas cannot find it…probably because he’s in the wrong country (and the wrong world, for that matter). And by the way, this really happened…sort of.
The comedy group, Improv Everywhere is known for bringing famous movies to public spaces. It’s kind of like a flash mob, but not annoying or obnoxious. They did it with Back to the FutureLord of the Rings, Jurassic Park and now, Harry Potter. Watch the video below and see how the boy playing the young
wizard charmingly pranks the crowd (some of them oblivious to what the hell he is doing) at Penn Station.
