If Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Were a ’90s Teen Movie

The Harry Potter movies have their rom-com moments, but in this parody trailer by Thewlis Rox the series’ sixth installment, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, becomes a full-blown teen romance, with Harry and friends framed as laughing, lusty young wizards whose academic obligations dissolve in the face of love potions, house parties, and rah-rah athletic events.

The finishing touch: Josh Powell’s “Big Beat Repeat,” a bonus song on the film’s soundtrack that perfectly apes the sprightly pop-rock of the ‘90s.
