So, at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, you can go into Ollivander's shop. There, you get to watch a little skit between one of Ollivander's employees and someone selected from the audience.

Well, Lauren Fairweather (the Wizard Rocker) was selected and somewhat hilariously reacted.

Sorry the video is total crap and the sound isn't much better. You probably had to be there, but it was freaking awesome
Ollivander: We use unicorn hairs, we use phoenix tails, heartstrings of dragons. No two Ollivander wands are the same. Just as no two unicorns, dragons, or phoenixes are the same. Of course, you would never get such good results with another wizards wand. I think a Hawthorne wand for you. (Background: laughing) This wand is 13 1/2 inches long, it has a dragon heart string core, it's a bit of a springy wand. Ha, you see the wand boxes up on the top shelf? Alright, I want you to pick one out and make it float in the air. Give your wand a swish and a flick and say 'Wingardium Leviosa.' 

Lauren: Wingardium Leviosa! 

Ollivander: That is not the wand for you. Reparo! (banging) Right now, perhaps, perhaps a hazel wand. What is your birthday, may I ask?

Lauren: June 1st

Ollivander: This wand is 11 1/2 inches long. Hazel and phoenix tail feather. It's a nice, flexible wand. Ha, there's a bell up here. I'd like you to ring it, one time. Now, concentrate, focus your attention on the bell. When your ready, point your wand.

(whoosh) (bell ringing)

Ollivander: Oh! 

(laughing)(bell ringing)

Ollivander: Notice! Definitely not. But you're doing very well.

Lauren: Oh, thank you.


Ollivander: Those of us who have studied wand lore have always known that the wand chooses the wizard. It's not always clear why. 

(Harry Potter theme song) (laughing)

Lauren: The music knows, too. 


Lauren: Signs are in on me.

(camera adjusting noises)

Ollivander: Perhaps this. (dramatic music) Perfect. A reed wand is ideal for a bold wizard, an eloquent speaker, someone who can be a great and protective friend. It's an excellent wand for divination and for adding stability to spells. This wand has a unicorn hair core. Your charismatic charm will help you on the way. My assistant will be happy to answer any questions you may have. The wand learns from the wizard and the wizard from the wand. Right this way. Of course you are all welcome to explore the entire collection of wands if you'll continue through the doors.
