The Demon Clouds of PinkPop

Last week, the annual Dutch music festival, PinkPop, came to a close in Limburg.  It ended a little later than planned, thanks to a heavy storm that popped up right as closing act, Metallica, was about to take the stage.  The 70,000 strong crowd got soaked, but everyone followed organizers' instructions and no one was injured during the downpour.

It wouldn't take long, however, before a photo taken of the storm clouds rolling in hit social media and are STILL being posted.  What appears to be a skeletal and/or demonic face can clearly been seen on the left and was thought by many to be an ominous sign.  Several years earlier at another music festival in Belgium, five people were killed and over a hundred more injured during a storm.  Was the face a warning to concert organizers that they should have cancelled the show...or was it a sign of something more sinister.  Immediately certain members of the religious commentary community warned of the Satanic implications of metal music, impending end times, and anything else you can think of.

Apparently these people have never seen Harry Potter!!

As some have suggested, this photo is not the best example of pareidolia ever...its a flat-out hoax.  The image in the clouds is none other than that of Lord Voldemort as he can be seen in the 2009 movie, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.  Check out the opening seconds of the video below for proof.
