Probably nothing of the sort ! It's a game etc, so just an idea of fantasy that the writer/developer "thought" might sound mystical....

Well done for the more realistic approach/idea.
Lets face it, when you consider something like "butter beer" from the HP stories, it's just a pair of words that wouldn't normally be used together, but project a slightly fantastic, mystical/magical idea in the readers head.
The "appearance" in the filmed versions is pure hollywood - though that certainly wouldn't stop the geeky/nerdy types trying to invent a "recreation" of it (and no, I realise it's impossible to invent a recreation.....)
