Harry Potter and the Screwball Teen Comedy

With all the bad news lately of Borders closing, Apple tightening its grip on iTunes, and what not, I thought we could all use a laugh. The above trailer was made from parts of the 6th Harry Potter movie, The Half Blood Prince. The trailer promotes the movie as a teen comedy, and it does a very good job of showing how a soundtrack affects your perceptions and that context is everything. All these clips are from the movie but it’s not a comedy (obviously).

But the trailer is quite funny. (Via Thewlis Rox)
