*UPDATE: Thanks much to TLC reader Zoe/Downtownpunk who let us know you can see a rough copy of the spot via this link. Thanks Zoe!
UPDATE 2: Higher quality video here courtesy The Movie Box.net!

Another brand new TV ad for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has just aired during the Simpsons tonight on FOX. TLC readers Ashley and Sarah write the ad featured Bellatrix (Helena Bonham Carter) whispering to Draco (Tom Felton) "Do the Deed." Other scenes include Snape (Alan Rickman) leading a group of people through the dark hallways, Draco taking his coat off, and Dumbledore speaking to Harry atop the Astronomy tower, noting he is 'the chosen one.' Anyone who captured the spot, please send it to staff@the-leaky-cauldron.org!

Thanks so much Ashley and Sarah!

Just saw it! I almost cried when they said “The end has begun…”. I may sense a new stage of Post Potter Depression coming on. It was super awesome though! I hope a lot more keep coming out with a bunch of new scenes until we can piece them all up together and make the movie!

i’d love to see a video of the other spot. the first one was awesome! i can’t wait to see tom felton play draco as more than just the annoying bully. and rupert play ron as more than just the comic relief. this film is going to be amazing!

I had been hoping they’d have a trailer with Star Trek (saw it over the weekend), but no such luck. It would have made sense.

My comment got Vanished, for some reason. But it wasn’t important anyway!

I love the part when Draco is walking down the hall and he’s nervous because someone is following him. That’s great acting on Tom’s part. I can’t wait!!!!

Leo_lovegood that is exactly what I heard Bellatrix say too. She very clearly says “Carry out the deed” not “do the deed”. Am I the only one who finds Lupin’s line about Draco very corny sounding? I can’t decide which is cornier, that line or Dumbledore telling Harry he’s the “chosen one” in every single teaser/trailer. Its still sooooo exciting to finally see all of the tv spots starting!

13 seconds in, that shot of Dumbledore is from the Lightning-Struck Tower right before he dies. You can tell from the sky, which is glowing in the background (similar to the way it was glowing when Snape says “It’s over” in the other trailers).

And his lips didn’t match up with the word “Harry”. It actually looks like he saying the word “please”, perhaps? =O
