Harry Potter star Tom Felton has made a hilarious TikTok mocking fans gushing over his character, Draco Malfoy, in the popular #DracoTok trend.

Harry Potter is a franchise that has exceeded far what many could ever expect of a book or film series, and the characters and storylines have stuck with fans for over two decades now, with Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (or Sorcerer’s Stone, depending on which side of the pond you reside) having been released back in 1997.

One of the more popular characters, somewhat surprisingly, is series-long antagonist Draco Malfoy, who at this point fans have ‘shipped’ with just about every character in the series. Much of this can, of course, be lent to Tom Felton, a good-looking man by any standard who portrayed the character perfectly.

As a result, Draco still has a number of fans worldwide, hence why “DracoTok” has become a thing: a corner of TikTok dedicated solely to celebrating the villainous teen and gushing over him.

Now, though, the man himself has found this corner of the app, and made a reaction TikTok of his own to some of the things he’s seen on there.

The video is somewhat of a mini-montage of the various emotions experienced browsing the hashtag: confusion, disgust, happiness, fear and all the rest of it, his sheer acting prowess out on full display.

Of course, Felton doesn’t actually dislike the videos at all and has commented on several DracoTok videos before showing support. In a comment on his own video, he simply urged fans to “hide nothing,” saying that he finds it all hilarious.

When actors play roles as big as that of Draco Malfoy, or on other big franchises, sometimes it can be hard to shake that character in fans’ eyes. By all accounts, though, it doesn’t look like the Potter star is too upset about it.

$375,000 Pokemon Trading Card Game box opening ends in absolute tragedy

A Pokemon Trading Card Game livestream ended in disaster after it was quickly discovered that the booster packs were fake. The YouTube channel spent over $375k on the 1st Edition base set box, only for it to be resealed. 

Despite making its debut in 1999, the Pokemon TCG has exploded in popularity over the past two years. The hobby hit an all-time high in October when influencer Logan Paul opened a base set booster box he paid $216k for while livestreaming.

However, things didn’t work out as well for another YouTube channel who paid $375k for the same item. The livestream unboxing of the rare collectible quickly turned tragic when it was discovered that the TCG item was actually fake.

Rare Pokemon TCG box opening ends in complete disaster

The event was hosted by YouTube channel ‘Dumb Money Live’ and included popular Pokemon content creators such as Lee ‘Leonhart’ Seinfeld. The rare 1st Edition base set booster box was bought for a record-breaking $375 through Logan Paul’s collectible trader ‘Collectables Guru.’

“The owner of the box supposedly bought three boxes when he was a child. They sat in the gun safe the entire time,” the Pokemon dealer explained. However, they quickly realized something was amiss after breaking the seal. Several booster packs were different colors, and some weren’t even 1st Edition.

“Oh no. That is a major f**king deal!” Guru exclaimed. The personality opening the box then revealed the problem: “It’s not even base set cards, these are Jungles! Wow. This is a resealed box. It’s random!”

(Topic starts at 35:41)

Upset, Collectable Guru called up the seller and explained that the box was resealed. “We opened the box literally live and they’re resealed packs. There is like base set 2 mixed in, half of them are 1st Edition. But they are all resealed, this is absolutely unacceptable. How is this going to be taken care of immediately?”

Stunned by the whole thing, Leonhart stood by and said, “Oh my gosh, I was not expecting that.” Guru came back and updated the group and explained that the seller had two other boxes that they were going to open first before bringing them back to the YouTubers.

To add salt to the wound, the box opening was done on stream for charity. Dumb Money Live gave an update and addressed the situation a day later stating: “I don’t know a single person in my network that hasn’t been defrauded as an investor. You have to give sellers a benefit to make this right.”

At the time of writing, the situation has not been entirely rectified. The channel will open a booster pack on October 30 live to verify that the second box is actually real. However, it appears that if this one is fake as well, the seller claims they will refund the content creators their $375k.
