I'm not saying that J.K. Rowling is a plagiarizer, but this David Copperfield vs Harry Potter is making it hard not to believe that she is. In this video from Funny or Die, the famous magician accuses the author for having ripped off most of the major ideas for her seven-book narrative straight from Copperfield's life. Invisible cloak? Yup, David did it first. Disappearing train? David's done it too. Mr. Copperfield even claims that he's been to a Hogwart's school of magic, though it also teaches people home VCR repairs.

The David Copperfield vs Harry Potter also features epic lines like, "You probably know me from... magic!"
