I love the Harry Potter movies with all my heart and think that Kenneth Branagh in the role of foppish idiot Gilderoy Lockhart was a stroke of casting genius. However, looking back at the nostalgia-inducing promo shots for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, it's kind of hilarious how unintentionally creepy they are.

Presenting: Harry Potter and the Stranger Danger...

Who are you and WHY ARE YOU TOUCHING ME?

He keeps saying he's a really famous wizard and he's gonna teach me all about the Dark Arts, but I don't buy it.

Ron... this guy is seriously weird...

Talk to a trusted friend if someone behaves inappropriately, Harry.

Now he's got Ron in his clutches, too!

Accio Chris Hansen from Dateline NBC's To Catch a Predator?

Maybe if I smile and ignore him, he'll go away...

He is still very definitely touching me.

Something is poking me. SOMETHING IS POKING ME!

Oh well, he's a little creepy, but at least he's a great teacher. JK, he's a terrible teacher, too!


Is Gilderoy Lockhart Harry's worst ever teacher?
