A part of the Potter Puppet Pals series created by Neil Cicierega, the video was technically just puppet versions of the Harry Potter characters sniffing out a bomb. But in reality it was so much more than that.

It was, in a word, iconic.

Like that time at the world premiere of Deathly Hallows, Part 2 when the crowd of fans greeted the late, great Alan Rickman by singing "Snape, Snape, Sev-er-us Snape."

That's also around 17 million views a year — because as of March 23, 2017, it's been 10 YEARS since the video was released. TEN YEARS!!!!
