Video: Simon Pegg as a drunk Ron Weasley singing Happy Birthday to Harry Potter on Jimmy Fallon
Yes that headline might be a bit of a mouthful but watch the video and it will make sense. Or at least as much sense as the Harry Potter films themselves. Or, well, you know what we mean.
Diehard Harry Potter fans will have known, or at least should have, that it was Harry Potter’s 33rd birthday on Wednesday, July 31, which would come as a shock to those of us who thought he didn’t look out of place alongside the Dublin minors when he celebrated their All-Ireland victory with them last year.
Anyway, to celebrate the occasion on Wednesday night, Jimmy Fallon called upon Harry's best friend Ron Weasley to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to him, only to find that Ron was as drunk as a lord and was in actual fact, not Ron Weasley at all, but Simon Pegg.
It might have only been a brief cameo but Pegg still provided plenty of laughs and posted the following tweet from his dressing room afterwards.

Belated Happy Birthday Harry, we’ll see you again to celebrate in style the same time this year, right?
