Accio Deathly Hallows is a song composed by Hank Green on July 18, 2007 and posted on YouTube in the Green brothers' account, vlogbrothers, as part of the Brotherhood 2.0 project.

Brotherhood 2.0

Brotherhood 2.0 is a video-blogging (vlogging) project between John and Hank Green. The project ran from January 1 to December 31, 2007; it consisted of the two brothers pledging not to communicate in textual form during the entire year, among other minor rules. (For instance, one such rule established that each brother had to post a video every other week day, save for holidays). When the rules were broken, the guilty party was assigned a punishment by those who watched the channel.

The two brothers gained significant popularity in the first half of the year. The project generated several inside jokes—namely the term 'nerdfighter,' used by the Greens to refer to cool geeks in general, and dedicated viewers of theirs in particular.

One recurring feature of Brotherhood 2.0 was the institution that when Hank's vlogging duties fell on a Wednesday, he had to write and perform a song. Some of the songs in question were Helen Hunt, It's Too Hot, Baby I Sold Your Dog on eBay and The Man Who Throws the Tetris Piece.

The final post of the Brotherhood 2.0 project was a duet John and Hank sang on Hank's December 31 video, Goodbye Brotherhood 2.0. The Greens continued to post frequent videos in 2008.

The song

Lyrics

I'm gettin kinda tired of this
Pre-publication media blitz
You've got all of Muggle kind under your spell

Don't you know the whole world's already gone
And reserved a copy from Amazon
How many more books could you sell?
Now give me that book or go to hell!

'Cause I need Harry Potter
Like a Grindylow needs water
And as Saturday approaches my need grows

Accio Deathly Hallows
Incendio book sales embargoes
It'll be like phoenix tears on a broken nose
Accio Deathly Hallows
Accio Deathly Hallows

I'm getting kinda petrified
What would Ron do if Hermione died?
Or if Voldemort killed Hedwig just for yucks?

I have no confidence
In theories about the Half-Blood Prince
And what if Harry's brain is a Horcrux?
Holy crap, that would frikkin' suck

(repeat chorus)

Whatever's up the sleeve of J. K. Rowling
I bet it has to do with Snape Unbreakably Vowing
To protect that Pure-blood pus-face Malfoy

But in the end I don't think it's gonna matter
If Snape's good, or if he's bad
Because the weight of the world rests on our boy
Yeah, the weight of the world rests on our boy

(chorus)

But mostly I'm just feelin' sad
I know this could end real bad but
I wish it didn't have to end at all
Yeah, I wish it didn't have to end at all

'Cause I couldn't care more about Harry Potter
If Hogwarts was my Alma Mater...

(repeat chorus)
