Forget Romilda Vane’s love potion, because Harry Potter himself has found yet another way to magic himself into our hearts. The star has been making the rounds while promoting his upcoming movie, Horns, and it seems like all those years of memorizing fancy spell words have paid off.
Appearing on The Tonight Show, with Jimmy Fallon helpfully holding up cue cards in the background, Radcliffe showed off his linguistic prowess as he rapped Blackalicious’ “Alphabet Aerobics.” While the Sacremento, California duo who penned the song have quite the reputation for tongue-twisting lyrics, it should come as no surprise that The Chosen One would easily be able to rap out the convoluted (and educational) track. After all, once you’ve taken out He Who Must Not Be Named, it’s all as easy as A-B-C.
“I’ve always had an obsession with memorising complicated and intricate fast songs,” he said, possibly also alluding to his rendition of the periodic table on the Graham Norton Show four years ago.
It’s not the only headlining promo Radcliffe’s been dishing out for the film–a Reddit AMA earlier this week saw him spilling the secrets of the Harry Potter set, gushing over comic books and deeply enjoying being mistaken for Elijah Wood (maybe it’s the height?). The dark, fantastical thriller, which happens to be an American-Canadian co-production, sees the magical wonderboy starring as a man framed for the murder and rape of his girlfriend. His complicated search for the truth takes on a new twist when he ends up growing horns over night—which just so happen to have magical powers. Magical rap powers?
