YouTuber and TikTok artist Kurt Schneider describes himself as ‘CEO of music with weird things’ on one of his handles, and he lived up to it by recreating the Harry Potter theme music on the control panel of a washing machine. The recreation of the tune impressed even author JK Rowling, who retweeted it.

Aided by his friend Jason Pitts, Schneider played the tune on a washing machine while dressed like Harry Potter. While Schneider played with the keys of the machine to produce the music, Pitts provided the beats.

It was shared on TikTok with the caption: “Harry Potter doing laundry be like”. Schneider later said that it took over five hours to get the tune right. But what impressed Potterheads was the ending of the video, in which Schneider crawled into a closet under the stairs, much like the beloved character.


The video started a laugh riot on TikTok with many saying that it might have ruined the washing machine.

The video was viewed over 4 million times on Twitter, and among those to retweet it was Rowling. After the author shared the music video, more fans came across it and praised Schneider.
