[scene opens with a young man (yellow spiked hair, braces) yelling excitedly into the camera, as a fake YouTube progress bar (0:22, 480p) runs along the bottom of the screen]
YOUTUBE KID: Hey guys! It's me, StR8Hype92!
[quick cut to the man jumping up and down as a sped-up laughing sound effect plays, then back to him speaking directly to the camera]
YOUTUBE KID: First I wanna say, thanks for all the comments last week! LOL, right?
[quick cut to the man laughing (with a fake laugh dubbed in), then cut to him staring blankly at the camera with a serious look on his face, as a fake "Click here for more StR8Hype92!!" annotation appears on screen]
YOUTUBE KID: Anyways, maybe your owls haven't come in yet, but the Muggle world is going to explode!
[cut to a closeup of the man's face]
YOUTUBE KID: James Cameron will direct the last "Harry Potter"!
[cut to several quick cuts of the man jumping around his room, screaming]
[as the man looks into the camera and screams with his hands on his face ("Home Alone" style), the image freezes and "Some sources can't be trusted" appears on screen]
