This man used his drone to create a dementor, made his Wisconsin neighbors practice their Patronus Charm

Halloween is in exactly 13 days, so there’s clearly no better time to attach a scary dementor/horrifying flying skeleton demon onto a drone and fly it around town. Which is exactly what Zac Crueger’s uncle did, and OMG it’s terrifying.

Crueger posted photos to Twitter and explained that his uncle bought a new drone and has been flying it around southern Wisconsin. He obviously has a brilliant sense of humor, and either really loves Halloween and scaring the crap out of people, or he’s a huge Harry Potter fan.

" my uncle got a drone now he's fucking with people😂😂😂," Crueger wrote.

In case you need a brief explanation of the Patronus Charm (for terrifying situations like the above), author Miranda Goshawk explained it best in her The Standard Book of Spells textbooks.

"This ancient and mysterious charm conjures a magical guardian, a projection of all your most positive feelings," she explained. "The Patronus Charm is difficult, and many witches and wizards are unable to produce a full, corporeal Patronus, a guardian which generally takes the shape of the animal with whom they share the deepest affinity. You may suspect, but you will never truly know what form your Patronus will take until you succeed in conjuring it."


It’s hard to tell if the flying creature is, in fact, a dementor, or if it’s simply a hilariously terrifying Halloween prank — but either way, it’s amazing.

But we’re gonna need everyone to be safe out there in southern Wisconsin, so if you haven’t taken the Pottermore quiz to discover your patronus, what are you waiting for?!? There are dementors flying around, you guys.
