Lord Voldemort's 'Uptown Funk' parody is magical

Who knew Death Eaters were so funky? In this Harry Potter parody music video, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named sure knows how to sing.

Harry, Hermione and Ron may be the heroes of Hogwarts, but it's Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters who really know how to party in "Dark Lord Funk."

YouTube user KFaceTV and Cosplay Utah show how Lord Voldemort and his intimidating gang of Death Eaters like to get down before taking down Hogwarts, to the tune of Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' hit song "Uptown Funk."

You'd have to be under the control of an Imperius curse not to sing along with lyrics like:

"Wait a minute,
Fill my goblet, put some fire in it,
Grasp the hands, make the vow,
Come on 'Trix, seal this now!
We takin Diagon, Nocturn, Hogsmede, Anywhere!
If we show up, we gon' curse out,
Badder than that Devil's Snare!"

Not only does the parody feature impressive singing skills from KFaceTV and his crew, but the special effects, sets and costuming are dead on. Plus there's a python snake in honor of the House of Slytherin.
