If you want to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows—Part 2, you have to wait until Friday. If you want to see the Tony Award-winning musical The Book of Mormon, you have to wait until January 2012, the next time tickets are available. But if you want to see a clever spoof of both, you'll find it below.

YouTuber TessaROXX (aka singer, dancer and actress Tessa Netting) wrote and sang this parody of Harry Potter, set to the tune of "Hello," from The Book of Mormon. But look carefully. Thanks to the application of costumes, wigs and makeup, you'll see that the multitalented Netting performed every one of these roles herself.

Moments to watch for: Harry caressing and stabbing a horse (a shout-out to his role in the play Equus), Hermione cutting her hair (something actress Emma Watson did after she finished filming Harry Potter) and Severus Snape being generally dour and hilarious at the same time.
