A spooky story told using CAPTCHA words

Captcha from Gabrielle de Vietri on Vimeo.

Gabrielle de Vietri narrates this haunting story using the nonsensical words found in CAPTCHA, the authentication system in place on many websites to try to weed out spam bots from real people. (Or to make a cinematic analogy, a text version of the Voight-Kampff test administered in the film BLADE RUNNER to distinguish real people from replicants.) Is it me or do many of the CAPTCHA words used sound like spells cast in HARRY POTTER?
