When it comes to the best viral videos of 2014, Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe earned top honors. And it didn’t involve conjuring up Emma Watson or riding on a broomstick either. Instead, the Hogwarts graduate achieved the accomplishment during a visit to The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, reported Yahoo! Movies.
Performing the highly complicated rap tracks of “Alphabet Aerobics” by Blackalicious, Radcliffe succeeded in enchanting even the talk show host. Watch and see if you agree.
In addition to loving hip-hop, the Harry Potter breakout star has become a workout devotee, as the Inquisitr reported. It’s all part of his goal to move into adult films, including going naked. And the combination of exercise and stripping apparently has boosted his self-confidence for everything from taking off his clothes to rapping in front of the world.
“I think getting naked on a stage gets rid of all your inhibitions,” reflected Radcliffe.
But when it comes to expecting the unexpected from Daniel, he recently caused a social media perfect storm by visiting Flint, Michigan, reported MLive News.
Harry Potter fans expressed their bewilderment at Radcliffe’s choice of (a) Flint and (b) a Bob Evans restaurant in Grand Blanc. A coffee shop employee proved it wasn’t magic by taking a photo that added to the Twitter excitement.
There was also a Twitter debate on whether it could really be true that Harry Potter was in Michigan, which several Tweeple were quick to confirm.
“Daniel Radcliffe was in Michigan.. HARRY POTTER WAS IN MICHIGAN” — @ErinKaye_
Others decided it was time to hunt down Harry and learn the secrets of Hogwarts.
“Daniel Radcliffe is in Michigan. I’m gonna find you dude” — @lukesfoolsgold
“Daniel Radcliffe is in flint and I would give anything to be able to meet him cause I’m a Harry Potter nerd.” — @jessicafulton_
Why choose Flint? Love and romance. Radcliffe was visiting his girlfriend Erin Darke who is an actress and graduate of University of Michigan-Flint.
Alas, she never attended Hogwarts, but there are no reports on whether Daniel has taught her a few magic spells. The two did, however, appear in a movie together with some intriguing scenes, shown below. The two met on the set of Kill Your Darlings.
Darke’s other films include We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011), Young Adult (2011), and The Wolverine (2013), according to IMDb.
The two also appeared on the red carpet at the Tony Awards.
