Quidditch Harry Potter Style (Photo Credit: YouTube photo capture)

Harry Potter’s favorite game Quidditch, has been a legitimate sport at high schools and colleges worldwide for over a decade. But no Muggle has ever played the game flying across the sky on a broomstick as the wizards did in J.K. Rowling’s popular book series.

However, that changed recently when a team of six professional skydivers, all dressed in spiffy uniforms, grabbed their brooms and leaped off an airplane for an aerial game of Quidditch. Not surprisingly, the stunt that was staged for a commercial to showcase Columbian telecommunications company ETB’s latest digital offering, has caught Harry Potter fans by storm. It has garnered almost a million views since it was released on YouTube on April 26, and the numbers are only growing.

        that would be sooooo awesome!! although the seeker is missing. i do think that they could add a snitch and a seeker easily.

          It looks fun, but where´s the seeker? And also I´m sure it's not as fun as Hogwarts Quidditch.
