Beyoncé Meets 'Harry Potter' in Hermione-Themed Video

If you create a piece of visible culture at this point in time, it will be mashed up with both Harry Potter and Hamilton. That's just all there is to it.

Made by Dominique, the woman behind the website The Storyscape, the lyrics are expertly flipped like so: "How did it come down to this / Thought our love was magic / I don't wanna lose my pride / But I'mma Crucio a witch." The idea was inspired by the #YAwithSoul hashtag.

Dominique, who also backed herself on guitar for the clip, told Bustle:

"I really love literature and music, and so this is simply where my passions collide. A lot of my creativity is in trying to bridge the gap between the two worlds and recently, I’ve just been flooded with these literary parodies... and it’s also a great way for me to keep practicing the guitar."
