Epic Harry Potter Prank!

| Filed under: Film FlickersSilly!Harry Potter

harry potter inspired prank played on mta nyc transit

Check out the photo (above) to see the most epic Harry Potter-inspired prank in history! In fact, it may be one of the best pranks in history IN GENERAL!

An absolute genius Somebody placed a circle that reads "9 3/4" on the 14th St. Union Square subway sign in NYC.

For those of you not in the know, you should be ashamed of yourself that's the number for the platform where students board the train to Hogwarts.

It looks REALLY spot on! Could the MTA have been involved? Warner Bros? Both of them?

Here's what MTA spokesperson Kevin Ortiz had to say about it:

"We are not part of any sort of Potter campaign, but I've seen things like that before."

If the guilty party comes forward, they'll be subject to a $75 fine and it will be worth every penny!

What do U think of this epic Harry Potter prank?

    Keith Haring and Banksy would be proud.



  7. 7

    I love it.

    Stupid. If it was going to be epic, they would have done it at King's Cross, instead.



  9. 9

    Why would they "come forward" if they know they are going to be fined $75?



  10. 10

    Basically it reads that there is a train 9 and three quarters at that station… In the books it's PLATFORM 9 and three quarters. So the joke doesn't even make sense.

  12. 12

    Its pretty awesome to harry potter fans.. but i find it hard to believe that you are a potter fan. Maybe a fan of the movies, but thats not a potter fan.

    LOL!!!!

    Wow, only took you like 2 days to find this… I seen this a few days ago.

    To think I for some reason wanted to come back here after having my McAfee Site Advisor for the last month tell me that this site could potentially harm my computer due to something in the programming of the site… I see I didn't miss much.

  22. 22

    um.. its cool I guess..

    "most epic Harry Potter prank in history"?
    .. not even close to being epic.. sort of funny for a 12 year old to do I guess.. not much more to say then that..
