Reddit user VapeThisBro posted a small video that could indicate a new RPG game in our beloved Harry Potter universe.
It was one of those mall survey groups. I wasn’t allowed to have the camera. The signs in the lobby say no phones but no one checked me. The guys who did all the paperwork looked like they gave zero fucks about their jobs and were getting anyone and everyone who would do the viewing to do it. I got paid to watch it – VapeThisBro
It didn’t take long before Warner Bros. Interactive took the video down from YouTube. But many managed to watch it, even created a small GIF from it as well.
