When Daniel Radcliffe visited the Nylon magazine offices, they immediately put him to work as a receptionist.

The resulting video is exactly what you’d expect would happen if a world-famous movie star spent an hour hanging out in your workplace lobby. Most people recognize him, and a lot of women develop an unexpected desire to hang around the reception desk. We don’t blame them.

“I’m not Lauren,” he explains to one visitor. “I’m like a cut-price, less efficient Lauren.”

It’s okay, Daniel. We doubt anyone was overly concerned about your efficiency.
