The Clean Cut: Skydivers play quidditch

Posted May 10

Harry Potter fans’ wildest dreams recently came to life when a Colombian telecommunications company called ETB sent a group of skydivers to play quidditch in the sky.

A real-life version of the sport Harry and friends played in the books and movies has been played by fans since 2010, but the game is usually recreated on the ground.

The YouTube version of the video has been viewed more than 470,000 times, and a version posted to Facebook by International Business Times UK has more than 17 million views.

The stunt caught the attention of the author of the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling, who retweeted the video.
