Staple of late 2000s Harry Potter fandom, Potter Puppet Pals posted a new video for the first time in two years. It’s not the same sort of high-energy chaos that the puppets popularized in their older videos — let us recall the absurdity of the Mysterious Ticking Noise, which recently turned 10 — but instead the music video for the latest single from wizard rock band Harry and the Potters, featuring singer-songwriter Kimya Dawson (who you might recognize from the Juno soundtrack).
Entitled “Where’s Ron?” the song is a platonic love ballad between Harry and Hermione, taking place during Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, in the time where Ron abandons his two friends. Also, the Snape puppet mournfully plays the piano, which makes sense given his gloomy disposition, with the frenzied Dumbledore puppet joining in on the drums later on.
Though the Potter Puppet Pals YouTube channel occasionally posts videos and live-streams in the past decade since the channel was really active, Harry and the Potters haven’t released a full length album in 13 years. “Where’s Ron?” is one of the tracks from their upcoming Lumos album, which recounts the events of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and releases on June 21.
