WTF Friday: A Remote for Dorks

Why yes, dear readers, that is indeed a grown man in a wizard cap waving a wand. And what exactly is that man doing with the wand? Turning on his TV, obvi.

Wait, wizards don’t wear ill fitting Dad jeans….

Of course! That guy’s not a wizard! He’s just a dorky old dude who’s so obsessed with Harry Potter that he purchased a $100 remote that looks like a wand so he could pretend he went to Hogwarts with Harry and the crew!!

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you your one-way ticket to Loserville. It’s called the Kymera Wand and it works as a remote to your televisions, audio equipment, laptops, and lights. With just a flick of your wrist and a little “Expecto Patronum!” under your breath (and a few batteries/instructions to program it), you can do magic! Or, you know, turn things on and off.

It’s one thing for people to put on robes and scarves to go see the movies. It’s another for Quidditch to become a college sport. But this? For adults? To pretend they are wizards?

What. The. Eff.
