nimbus-2000

Can we just take a moment to appreciate the fact that the broom company released the Nimbus 2000 and everyone was crowding in the stores, gawking at it, excitedly saying how much they wanted it and it was a huge deal that Harry had it because it was a freaking Nimbus 2000!?

And then the next year, they released the Nimbus 2001, which was considerably more expensive and everyone had to have one and those who did manage to get one kept making fun of the Nimbus 2000?

And then the very next year, the Firebolt came out and everyone was talking about how amazing it was and how it was leagues beyond the Nimbus 2000 and the Nimbus 2001 and it was so expensive that even Harry, with his vast mountains of gold, couldn’t afford it?

Like way to take a shot at capitalism, Jo!
