Hank Green Wishes For Another J.K. Rowling Book A Day Before Her Secret Crime Novel Is Revealed [VIDEO]

This is just like magic!


Hank Green, of the Vlogbrothers YouTube channel, makes a point of writing a song about Harry Potter every year on the anniversary of his release of “Accio Deathly Hallows,” the wizard rock song that celebrated the impending release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and brought a lot more visibility to the Vlogbrothers channel back in 2007. This year Green seems to have predicted the future with his newest song “Oh, J.K. Rowling,” in which he politely requests the author write something new for her many fans. Amazingly, the video was posted two days before the news broke that J.K. Rowling had secretly written a crime novel, The Cuckoo’s Calling, under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith. Since Rowling was revealed to be the author The Cuckoo’s Calling has risen from moderate success and favorable reviews to a spot on top of both U.K. and U.S. Barnes & Noble and Amazon sales charts.  The book, which sold 1,500 copies when it was released in the spring, is now selling out and will have to be reprinted. I’m sure Green is thrilled to know that his wish was granted. His timing is almost magical.
