For those of you who have been living under a rock and have not watched or read the Harry Potter series, Mashable has created a somewhat accurate Harry Potter summary in a 2 minute video. Harry Potter in 2 Minutes is part of their ongoing TL;DW project (short for Too Long; Didn't Watch). It is clear by the commentary of Bob Al-Greene and Max Knoblauch they are only summarizing the movies and perhaps themselves have not read the books.
With illustrations by Bob Al-Greene and animations from Noah Sterling, this Harry Potter summary is a humorous take on what happens in eight films. It also voices frustration with Lord Voldemort's inability to kill Harry as a baby.
