Pottering is a new photo meme that embraces the fictional and illusionary art of flying broomsticks á la Harry Potter. The viral craze emerged only recently, launching a Facebook page called Public Pottering on March 5th, and is already evolving into another version of itself that involves Quidditch, a fictional sport originated in the Harry Potter book series.
This particular trend, being called Quidditching, gained traction when a Japanese high school baseball team posted a photo of themselves engaging in a gravity-defying game of Quidditch to 2ch, Japan's largest bulletin board. The photo was shared thousands of times over, sparking a new batch of photos from Japanese high school students and teens all around the world. Even the Russian army joined in on the fun.
