Istanbul, Turkey. A storm hit the city last Saturday night and the inhabitants captured terrifying images, according to some of them, as they claim to see a human face in the sky formed by a cloud. Social networks echoed this novelty and some joked that it was nothing more and nothing less than Lord Voldemort, the villain of Harry Potter, saga that you can find on HBO Max.
Hava Forum, a local Twitter account that is responsible for reporting on the weather service, was one of the first to report what happened on the European night. “Shot of the human-like cloud seen in Istanbul from a different angle … We share this angle for those who say it is a montage”they wrote. This is the video!
As often happens, the clip began to go viral on Twitter and the word quickly became one of the first trends. “Voldemort”, by users of the social network who made reference to the enemy of the magician created by JK Rowling. More netizens from Turkey began to share their own records and jokingly increased the rumor that Tom Riddle invaded their sky.
“Lord Voldemort has returned”; “I will be in time for my letter to arrive at Hogwarts or I will have to experience Voldemort’s return as a filthy Muggle.”; and “Voldemort revived again. Do something, Mr. Harry Potter”, were some of the messages they issued on the networks when talking about this incredible situation. At the moment it is a simple cloud, but some still believe that the one who should not be named has exceeded reality.
It is not the first time that a climatic phenomenon is strongly linked to pop culture, since a few days ago the inhabitants of Ciudad Ixtepec, Mexico, were surprised to see a mysterious red light in the middle of the sky and some compared it to the Eye of Sauron from The Lord of the Rings. Of course, it was not this, but an electrical discharge between the clouds that is known as a “sprite” or “red goblin”.
