If Harry Potter and His Friends Had Instagram…

Harry Potter Instagram5

When you’ve got magic, you don’t really need the Internet or a smartphone for that matter. But let’s just say that in an alternate universe, Harry Potter and the gang got their hands on a smartphone and discovered the wonders of Instagram. If that happened, then these are the imagined posts that they would make.

They go light on the filters, but that’s probably because they all look picture perfect and camera ready most of the time. Harry, Ron, Hermione, their kids, and even Draco get in on the action in this gallery created by Jen Lewis from Buzzfeed. Hit the break to check out more imagined IG posts from the Chosen One and his friends after the break.

Would You Have Said Yes? ‘Picking Up Girls in a Fat Suit’ Social Experiment

Do looks still matter as much as they used to, or have people changed? For years, we’ve heard about how so many people have come to the realization that true love prevails, regardless of someone’s wealth, status, or appearance. Putting this to the test is Jason from Simple Pickup, who donned a fat suit and confidently set out to ask random girls for their digits.

Did his confidence and personality win them over, or did his looks turn them off before he even opened his mouth?

The social experiment is interesting and its results undoubtedly say a lot about people’s perceptions nowadays. If you think about it, the results aren’t all that surprising. You can check the clip out above to see for yourself.

High Five Fiesta Adds a Little Something Extra to Your High Fives

High Five Fiesta

Add a little something extra to otherwise boring high fives with High Five Fiesta. It’s a small, handheld gizmo that shoots confetti into the air once its wearer gives (or receives) a high five. It features a reusable confetti cartridge which can easily be loaded with confetti when it’s all high-fived out.

Some people might hesitate when they see the humongous green button on your palm when you raise your hand for a high five, but they’ll soon realize it’s pretty harmless and loads of fun when they do decide to meet your hand with theirs. High Five Fiesta isn’t available for purchase yet, although its creators will be launching a crowdfunding campaign on Dragon Innovation soon to fund its manufacture.

You can check out their website for updates: Fiesta Five.

Need a Roommate? Create a Poster and See Your Ad Go Viral

Roomate Mock Poster

Awesome roommates are hard to come by. Lauren Fahey recently moved to San Francisco and came upon that realization after apartment hunting for a while. With a lot of other “competitors” on the side, Lauren decided that the only way she was ever going to find a decent place to live in was to sell herself–as being one of the best roommates you could ever have.

Lauren then created a movie poster-like ad which featured testimonials about Lauren as a roommate from previous roommates. The ad’s backdrop featured Lauren with a friend (who could be you, if you’re looking for a roommate!) and an ironic naked man at the back, for no particular reason. She explains: “Apartment and roommate hunting was getting so tedious. It’s ridiculously competitive and I had to find a way to set myself apart.”

Lauren’s methods worked, since she now has herself a roommate. If you’re looking for one yourself, then take a cue from Lauren and see if it works for you, too.

Grumpy Cat Snow Globe: Tardar Sauce is Not Impressed

Grumpy Cat Snowglobe

You’ve seen her pictures. You’ve laughed at her memes. Now own something inspired by none other than Tardar Sauce herself. She has achieved global fame on the Internet, where she’s known as Grumpy Cat. You know how some people’s resting faces look like they’ve swallowed something bitter? Well, that’s kind of what Tardar Sauce looks like at any given time, only the expression she sports is of the grumpy, unimpressed kind.

Even though the season of Christmas still won’t bring a smile to that face, something inspired by it will bring joy and a few laughs to most people who encounter it: the Grumpy Cat snowglobe. Shake it, flip it over, tilt it to one side, and you’ll be treated to a rain of glitter and confetti swirling about a bored-looking bust of Grumpy Cat.

Christmas doesn’t get any better than this, even though the snowglobe says otherwise. The Grumpy Cat snowglobe is available online for $16.

Check Out the Happiest Costume on Earth!

Happiest Costume Ever

Disneyland might be the happiest place on earth, but this here is the happiest costume in the world. As you might’ve probably already guessed by now, the costume draws inspiration from the theme park itself. The costume is a handful but it was a challenge that Rob Cockerham of Cockeyed gleefully took on.

The costume is essentially a wearable miniature replica of the world-famous theme park. Spot Space Mountain, the Jungle Cruise, Fantasyland theater, Autopia, the Astro Orbiter, and the Innoventions building on the massive costume, among a host of other attractions. While Rob can definitely walk around while wearing it, I doubt he’ll be able to take a drink from the water fountain or fit through most doorways.

Tricks Done Right: Flying R/C Quadcopter Ghost with Glowing Eyes

October is the month when pranksters let loose, where almost everyone becomes a victim of their sometimes funny and often scary pranks and practical jokes. Taking things one step further is Alton Porter. He built a flying remote-controlled ghost that has glowing eyes that definitely adds to the scare factor.

Alton’s probably having a few laughs right now as he flies his R/C ghost around for a test run before unleashing it onto unsuspecting trick-or-treaters come October 31st. If you know him personally or live in the same neighborhood, you might want to avoid his house if you don’t want the living daylights scared out of you or your kid…or not, because in hindsight, that’s what makes Halloween fun in the first place.

Hilarious: Improv Everywhere Recreates ‘You Shall Not Pass!’ Scene from LOTR

Remember that epic moment from the Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring movie where Gandalf stands in front of the Balrog and delivers the forceful line that was eventually turned into a meme: “You shall not pass!” It was powerful moment and it changed the course of the events to come.

This being one of the most easily recognizable scenes from the series, Improv Everywhere set out to make people experience it in real life by recreating it in one episdode of their “Movies in Real Life” series. The result is pretty hilarious.
