San Francisco based drag queen Florida Man’s iconic lip sync as Lady Voldemort to Ariana Grande’s ‘Dangerous Woman’ has gone viral online.
In the performance, Florida Man appears in a long black robe before ripping it off to reveal fishnet tights and a black bodysuit. After some time, a man dressed as Harry Potter arrives on the stage to make the performance more iconic!
According to a tweet by the Florida Man, the performance is a scene from Harry Potter’s third movie – ‘director’s cut’.
The performance was a part of Ariana Grande’s tribute night at San Francisco’s local club OASIS.
Florida Man is known for mashing up pop culture in absurd ways. This time the performance was a part of weekly show called ‘MOTHER’, which welcomed it’s debut Ariana Grande’s tribute.
While talking to Teen Vogue, Florida Man said:
“A few months ago I produced a Harry Potter tribute show called She Who Must Not Be Named and did my first number as Lady Voldemort. It was so fun and so absurd that I knew I wanted to bring the character back in wilder situations,” Florida Man tells Teen Vogue. “So when the Ariana night popped up everything just clicked. It had to be ‘Dangerous Woman’ and it had to be a burlesque number”.
“Part of what I’m doing with Lady Voldemort is reimagining a universe where the canon of Harry Potter is queerer and weirder, and I think that speaks to a lot of queer people and Harry Potter fans alike,” Florida continues “It’s also just ridiculous.”
A clip shared by Florida Man on twitter has gone viral overnight, raking up 50,000 likes and 21,000 retweets.
