Ahh. It’s times like this we thank the heavenly gods for the invention of camera phones (not those old school ones where you have to actually attach the camera, though, because that’s just long and fiddly), because otherwise this precious moment may never have been shared with the world.


That’s right; here before you, you see Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe rapping along to Eminem’s The Real Slim Shady. And doing a good job of it, too.

The video was uploaded to Twitter by Amanda Finnie (@Afin_fin) with the caption: “So my brother just met Daniel Radcliffe at a pub in HalfMoon Bay... This is Daniel rapping to Eminem.”

We’ve literally never been so jealous we weren’t at a certain place at a certain time.

While we enjoyed Dan Radz’ rendition, we already knew he has a knack for rapping after he covered Blackalicious’ Alphabet Aerobics on the The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon back in October last year, and before that he rapped The Elements Song on The Graham Norton Show back in 2010.

"That's right, I'm a rapping genius."

So it seems the What If star is more talented than we originally gave him credit for when he first graced our screens as a specky wizard back in 2001.

We’re thinking a remake of 8 Mile starring Dan Radz – what do you reckon? Movie people, let’s make this happen!
