From HISHE, comes their latest video “How The Desolation of Smaug Should Have Ended”
“A Hobbit, Some Dwarves, and a Wizard walk into a mountain… well not the wizard he likes to bail on everyone at a time where him staying would make the quest much simpler … also there’s a dragon that nobody seems to want to prepare for …. What was I talking about? Oh yeah…. Here are some hobbit jokes.”
Tolkien fans and purists have had mixed reactions to the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit themed videos from HISHE. I have always taken their satire on the films as,“this must be the way that many Non-Tolkien fans perceive the films and books”. Perhaps looking at it this way will be able to chisel a smile on the faces of those who wish for a “Smaug attack” on the creators.
“Satire is the sincerest form of flattery”, after-all! Enjoy!
