20 years ago, on June 26th 1997, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J. K. Rowling, was published in the UK.
It wasn’t published in the USA until September 1998 with the new name of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
We can’t mention Harry Potter without bringing up Potter Puppet Pals. Can you believe it’s over 10 years ago since this was first uploaded? It has received a crazy amount of views, nearly 175 million to date! Nearly as many HP books sold top date!
Along with the Harry Potter craze came some very strange viral videos. Who remember this one below? “You’re a Wizard Harry”
Warning* Video below is not for kids.
And the best bit of all? JK Rowling is a decent skin.
