Epic Rap Battles Of History 11: Gandalf vs Dumbledore

For those of you who are regular readers of OSM you will already be aware that we report on various viral YouTube videos. Now we have another one to tell you about from the Epic Rap Battles of History, this is the 11th rap and it’s a battle of Wizardry… Gandalf vs Dumbledore.

We have reported previously on the Epic Rap Battle videos, some of the raps that we enjoyed most included Hulk Hogan vs Kim Jong-Il and of course, Justin Bieber vs. Beethoven. The historical figures that do battle against each other are picked by the fans at the end of each video for the next. In other words, someone commented on the Ben Franklin vs Billy Mays video with Gandalf vs Dumbledore and the creator, NicePeter, went ahead with it.

Whilst neither character realistically has the status of a historical figure, they are two characters that everyone knows which will increase its popularity. Its things like NicePeter’s creation of the epic rap battles that makes us all enjoy YouTube so much, although we hear that Lady GaGa hasn’t enjoyed the last few days after her YouTube account was suspended (back up now)!

For those of you who aren’t aware of who these two characters are, Gandalf is the wizard from The Lord of the Rings books and films. He is one of the powerful forces that fights against evil alongside the fellowship. Now Gandalf has taken to the stage to go head to head with Dumbledore in what should only be described as a “magical” encounter!

Dumbledore is the Headmaster of Hogwarts where Harry Potter attends and at the moment with Pottermore.com announcements and the new film out, he is a popular choice. We read that his name is an early modern English word for “bumblebee” as JK Rowling imagined him to be walking around humming to himself.

The video as always is at the bottom of the article and we would like to warn you that some of the language is not for the feint hearted. There are also a few references to certain words that sound a lot like swearing, we thought it was only fair to warn you. If on the other hand you simply cannot wait to watch the latest in the series then scroll further down to watch it!

Who do you think won this encounter? We are going with Dumbledore! Let us know your thoughts and who you think wins the rap battle in the comments section below. Who else would you like to see going toe-to-toe?
