'Harry Potter' parody video mashes up Beyonce, Hermione Granger

‘I hopped up out the bed and stepped on Scabbers…’

Posted on

Beyoncé’s record-breaking album Lemonade has been spoofed by everyone from Ellen DeGeneres to James Corden, but one YouTuber has released a particularly magical parody of one of Bey’s biggest songs off the album.

Dominique of The Storyscape rewrote Beyoncé’s “Hold Up” from the perspective of a lovestruck Hermione Granger, circa Order of the Phoenix and The Half-Blood Prince. As Hermione Hermioncé, she sings about her complicated relationship with Ron Weasley, spitting lines like “Wand up, I don’t wanna have to hex you” and “I don’t wanna lose my pride, but I’ma Crucio a witch.”

“I really love literature and music, and so this is simply where my passions collide,” she told Bustle about her Harry Potter-inspired video. “A lot of my creativity is in trying to bridge the gap between the two worlds and recently, I’ve just been flooded with these literary parodies… and it’s also a great way for me to keep practicing the guitar.”
