[[quoteright:345:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/coldmirror_8826.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:345:Kaddi in her natural environment]] -> ''"Hey, ich bin Kaddi aka Coldmirror. Man braucht mindestens sieben Gehirne um den Sinn meiner Videos zu verstehen."'' -> ''"Hey, I'm Kaddi aka Coldmirror. You need at least seven brains to get the meaning of my videos."'' -->- '''Coldmirror''' on her YouTube profile Kathrin Fricke (a.k.a. coldmirror, Kaddi or Kreatur im Spiegel) is a German {{Youtube}}r who became famous for her {{Gag Dub}}s of the {{Harry Potter}} movies. So far, she has completed the first ("Harry Potter und ein Stein”) and the second movie ("Harry Potter und der geheime Pornokeller"); she is currently working on dubbing the fourth movie ("Harry Potter und der Plastikpokal"). Apart from dubbing, Coldmirror does sketches on various themes, a {{Vlog Series}} and [[{{Mondegreen}} Misheard Lyrics]]. Due to her enormous popularity, the German radio station You FM took notice of her and offered Coldmirror her own category on their website where she reviews new computer games ("Game Checks") twice a month. She even has [[BaseBreaker her own TV show]] now: Starting from October 2010, the small station [[GermanTVStations Einsfestival]] is broadcasting "Coldmirror - The Clip Show" once a month. The 10-minute Clip Show is modelled very closely on her Youtube channel and includes {{Gag Dub}}s, Game Checks, parodies of commercials and Misheard Lyrics. Her YouTube channel can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/user/coldmirror here]]. Her parody of the first HP movie can be found in English [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEWxyczUowI here]]. As the original contains loads and loads of untranslatable insiders, you should really check it out if you speak some German. ---- !! Tropes: * TheAbridgedSeries: Averted, since only a few, less interesting scenes are cut; it was not Coldmirror's intention to shorten the movies. She began the Dubs before the concept of Abridged series was even invented. * AffectionateParody: The Gag Dubs, along with every video concerning Harry Potter. ** "Was wäre, wenn YouTube das reale Leben wäre?" (What if You Tube was RealLife?") is one about habits on [[CaptainObvious YouTube]]. ** "Miss Tutorial" parodies the style of Herr Tutorial, another famous German {{YouTube}}r who does [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Tutorials]]. * AllMenArePerverts: In her Harry Potter parodies. * AmbiguousGender: [[DubNameChange Lucy]] Malfoy. Most likely he/she/it is a {{Hermaphrodite}} * AnAesop: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=99mA-9tiMtE Geht wählen oder sterbt]] ("Vote or die", for 2009 european elections) and "Da hinten" ("Over there") were over the top sketches. Played straight with "Casting your vote in an election is an essential part of democracy", though. * AuthorAppeal: Coldmirror sure likes [[EverythingsDeaderWithZombies zombies]], [[CaptainObvious Harry Potter, video games]] and DougJones. * BigNo: Parodied. -->[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKA4TW3-vBc Noooooooooooin!!]] * BlackHumor * ButtMonkey: Dumbledore only hired Hagrid because he knew the half-giant would be [[ButtMonkey perfect for the role]]. ** [[HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire Cedric]], who is constantly reminded that he will die [[BreakingTheFourthWall at the end of the movie]]. ** The [[HufflepuffHouse Hufflepuffs]]. *** Special mention goes to "Extra no. 27" * CharacterDerailment: Played for laughs in the Dubs. The most prominent example is Fresh Dumbledore (Fresh D for short), who is basically Professor Dumbledore [[RecycledInSpace AS A RAPPER]]. Other characters include a gay Draco, a JerkAss Hermione and a butt dumb Ron. [[invoked]] * CatchPhrase: Coldmirror's very special way of pronouncing "Hi!", "Tschüss Kinder!" and Fresh D's "[[TotallyRadical Hey Yo!]]". * CharacterNameAndTheNounPhrase: Parodied in "Harry Potter und schon wieder irgendwas". * CloudCuckooLander: Ron * ContinuityNod: Many throw-away one-liners (such as Hermione learning three wikipedia articles a day by heart) are referred to in later videos and become canon. * CookingDuel: Dumbledore and Voldemort have a rap battle in the song "Fresh D vs. MC V". * CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: In two videos called "Patzer" ("bloopers") and "Patzer: Folge 2" she lists [[CriticalResearchFailure really dumb]] mistakes concerning Harry Potter in magazines and on websites (e.g. mistaking Lucius Malfoy, Snape and even Mr. Ollivander for Lord Voldemort). ** [[DidNotDoTheResearch They seldom did their research]]. Otherwise one wouldn't find as many variations of {{HeWhoMustNotBeNamed}}'s name (how about Valdemort, Voldemoort, Voldermort or Waldemort) - Coldmirror suggests to rename him into He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named-Correctly. ** Snake, Sung (Cho Chang, in case you've wondered), Drago [[strike: Malfroy]] [[strike: Mafloy]] Malefoy and Hermione Gringer (no, not [[HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse Cringer]]) get a similar treatment. * CrapsackWorld: In the dubs, Harry is constantly being harrassed by about every teacher, Dumbledore doesn't care about the students or protecting Hogwarts from Voldemort, he just wants to be a rapper, and the trio spends their time playing cruel jokes on Hagrid or Neville. * DeadpanSnarker: Snape. Coldmirror herself also qualifies sometimes. * DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: "It's an invisible-making Invisibility Cloak which makes you invisible!" ** [[HollywoodSatanism Dead corpses!]] * EleventyZillion: Achtzehnhundertelfundsiebzig (Eighteen-hundred-seventy-eleven), Neuzehnhundertzwölfundachtzig (Nineteen-hundred-eighty twelve)... - Dumbledore does this often, when telling stories about his youth. --> ''[[UnreliableNarrator I strongly doubt that you witnessed this era, let alone that this era even exists ...'']] * FantasyForbiddingFather: When she was young, Kathrin's father criticised her for staying in her room, drawing (she draws excellent) and dreaming all day and wanted her to do "something useful" instead. Maybe one reason why she hasn't had any contact with him for ten years now. * GermanHumour * GratuitousEnglish / TotallyRadical: Fresh D wants the pupils to think he's cool. It doesn't work. * GrossoutShow: the "audio drama" ''Harry Potter und Zitronenbonbons'' qualifies * HahahaNo: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRwW08TbwC0 At 02:11]] * HarassingPhoneCall: Parodied in "Bei Anruf Mord!" * HitlerAteSugar: The Weasley twins say this when the candyman introduces himself. * HufflepuffHouse: Lampshaded. * ImYourWorstNightmare: --> Harry: "Where am I?" --> Voldemort: "In your worst nightmare!" --> Harry: "Waking up without my penis is my worst nightmare." -->''Harry describes his other nightmares while Voldy gets more and more impatient. Several minutes later..'' --> Voldemort: "In your 46th-worst nightmare!" --> Harry: [[SarcasmMode "Oh no! Fear!"]] * IronButtMonkey: Attempts at killing Neville have become a popular sport at Hogwarts. They always fail. --> "Is Neville dead now?" "Oh snap, Neville's still alive." * LargeHam: Snape had a ''literal'' one at the beginning of the second movie. After a long explanation by Ron and Harry why they are late for school he just shouts “[[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Schinken!]]” (which translates to “Ham”). Confronted with their dumbfounded expressions, he smugly adds that they probably weren't expecting him to say something so snappy. * LetsPlay: So far she did Let's Plays for the videogames of James Cameron's ''Avatar'' and the games of the 6th and 7th Harry Potter movies. ** RunningGag: While playing Avatar, she somehow managed to get stuck in the scenery every time she was driving a vehicle. Then [[HilarityEnsues she got stuck in mid-air]] while riding one of the giant birds and quit the game rather frustrated. * MassiveMultiplayerCrossover: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=99mA-9tiMtE Geht wählen oder sterbt]] features nearly every popular German You Tube comedian. * MoodWhiplash: Any video featuring her younger sister, who died in a car accident in 2007 at the age of seventeen. They wrote a hauntingly beautiful song as a tribute to her as well[[http://www.youtube.com/user/coldmirror#p/u/95/GRRbFLuRaq8]]. * ParrotExposition: Parodied --> ''Mme Ponfrey: "Everyone who ate your candy got sick!"'' --> ''Dumbledore:: Got sick?"'' --> ''"Yes, they all got racking toothaches!"'' --> ''"Toothaches?"'' --> ''"Are you playing "echo" again?" --> ''"Echo again?"'' * PoliticallyIncorrectHero: Fresh D, Hermione in “Harry Potter und schon wieder irgendwas”. * ProductPlacement: Often parodied. ** Voldemort used the Haribo jelly sweets slogan as a line in "Fresh D. vs. MC V". * RalphWiggum: Neville; Hagrid and Ron show shades of this as well. * ShowWithinAShow: "Hässliche mutierte Scheiß-Tiere suchen ein Zuhause" and "Wood`s Sooper-Dooper-Shop" * ToiletHumor: Mostly in her early works. * TooDumbToLive: Neville, but Ron also fits: "Ron, don't think so hard! It will harm your brain." * VillainsOutShopping: Voldemort spends 90% of "Harry Potter und schon wieder irgendwas" on the sofa watching TV. The rest of the time he surfs the internet and buys stuff on Ebay. ----
