Interested in some memes that are legit Gubraithian fire? Then you need to check out this new segment from The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where Mr. Fallon takes actor Daniel Radcliffe to school over some Harry Potter-related Internet memes.

Radcliffe, who portrayed J.K. Rowling's "The Boy Who Lived" in all eight Potter films, admitted that he was never totally aware of just how viral the character became with the advent of memeing.

"I think I have [seen] maybe a couple over the years, but nothing I can immediately remember," he said. "I don't seek them out."

Watch him learn just how magical Harry can make the World Wide Web:

There are plenty of Wizarding World memes out there, ranging from harmless to requiring an NC-17 rating. The ones shown to Radcliffe range on the more harmless side, but he did offer some insight into one that shows a haggard-looking Radcliffe with the caption:

"Thinkin bout all them school loans wondering if your wizardry degree gonna work out."

"That's me, years ago, out for lunch or something, realizing that there was a paparazzi to my right and being like, 'Ughhhh,'" said Radcliffe.

Another meme shows Harry from Sorcerer's Stone holding the Golden Snitch with the caption reading:

"If you're havin' Quidditch problems, I feel bad for you son. I got 99 problems, but a Snitch ain't one."

It definitely makes Potter look like a badass gangsta, but Radcliffe insisted that he never felt like that while making the earlier movies.

"As a kid, you're just insecure at that age, I never felt cool at any point playing that character, and these [memes] go like, 'No, people thought that was pretty cool."
