Original YTMND:
An important announcement at Hogwarts!  
Worthy spinoffs:

Harry Potter and the ...

The Harry Potter and the ... fad originally began back on October 8, 2007 when YTMND user bettabomb posted a site containing an animated GIF of Harry, Ron, and Hermione looking up at the loud speakers in Hogwarts from the movie Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Accompanying it was an audio from South Park of a man spewing out profanity due to his Tourettes syndrome. In the movie, the three students are actually listening to Professor Dolores Umbridge explaining some of her new rules at Hogwarts. A few spinoffs were made in 2007, but not a whole lot.

On Halloween Night of 2009, prairiedogeric10 brought the fad back by posting this site. The site had originated in 2007, but was deleted, so prairiedogeric10 recreated the echoing audio and reused bettabomb's GIF. The original site was edited so Ron had a corny smile on his face as the GIF ended, but prairiedogeric10's editing skills on GIFs are terrible because he only knows how to make GIFs with the MySpace GIF Maker. amindlessidiot then posted this site and the fad was quickly reborn. All night the recently created was filled with the Harry Potter sites and they are still being made as of the morning of November 1.

This fad is popular because it can be made in less than one minute so all the untalented users of YTMND crank these out as fast as they can.
