Tom Felton has landed himself in deep trouble after feeling nostalgic for his old Hogwarts days. At least, that’s what happens in the actor’s new commercial with Uber Eats.
The Harry Potter alum stars in the food delivery company’s new video ad for its “Get almost, almost anything” campaign, which dropped on 14 September. In the clip, Felton is seen living in suburbia and reminiscing about his time as Draco Malfoy, as he stares at a portrait of his brooding former self.
He takes his chances and types “magic” into the Uber Eats app. Shortly after, a wand appears at his doorstep, floating out of an Uber Eats delivery bag. That’s when Felton’s neighbour, Jim, bids him good morning. After seeing Felton’s newly-acquired magic skills, he asks Felton to make his pesky garbage pile of leaves disappear. However, the former wizard appears to be quite rusty, and accidentally makes Jim disappear instead.
Felton’s neighbours then launch a search party to find Jim, while the Harry Potter star reels with guilt. He quickly becomes a main suspect, as TV news stations report Felton is wanted by police “for magic”.
The ad ends with Felton’s face pressed up against a police car windshield, his hands behind his back. Over the clip, the text for the campaign reads: “Magic, no. Ice magic, yes.” The alternate ending then shows Felton enjoying a bowl of ice cream, with Cottee’s Ice Magic chocolate topping. If only he had ordered Ice Magic, instead of actual magic.
