Oooh, this must be based off that Hobbit menu at IHOP!

Man, what a snarky article. So people in new zealand are having fun with all the free publicity their country's been getting - so what? Let them have their fun.

Actually most of the other half is the sex indus- oh, wait, no, right. Sheep.

LotR + sex. Well, I'm sure the market is saturated with THAT version of Rule 34.

Funny, he doesn't look Elvish.

The language actually sounds lovely. That was a treat.

I thought it was cool.

Trust me, there are plenty of New Zealanders embarrassed about how over the top the NZ media and the NZ government are playing this. I liked LOTR and enjoyed the books, but frankly it reeks of attention seeking desperation. Put it this way, if NZ were a character from the Simpsons, it would be Gil.

Lovely when most people speak it, but terrifying if Hugo Weaving is talking. Go figure.

I have a neighbor who lives on South Island for the winter.
I told him to pick up some hobbit coins for me, and I'd pay him for face value.
This should be good.

//P,S. He's loaded.

Desperation? The LOTR movies are going to be fueling New Zealand tourism for decades. I know people who have barely ever left their own state talking about how beautiful NZ looks and how they'd like to go there. These movies have been the best advertisement for NZ that could possibly have been created. Tourism is a major industry and by going over the top they're adding to the country's publicity, it's just good business. It's as much advertising as a TV ad talking about NZ's beach resorts would be.

He didn't give me the weather. That was a farking commercial.

Aw, that was actually pretty cool.

Elven weather guy was very hot too. I didn't know I had an elf fetish until I watched this.

This. Tourism based on LOTR will bring in billions over the next decade.

And I'd rather see this type of fun, than countries throwing missiles at each other.

Yeah it did seem rather snarky. I definitely think this whole thing is over cooked, but since it's all the rage at the moment here these guys are just having their fun with it.

Cut the guy some slack.

The New Zealand economy consists entirely of:

Lord of the Rings movie production
Little fuzzy fruits
Rugby
Sheep

Me, on the other hand...well, we now know that Maori should probably not be cosplaying as Legolas. (Besides, hakas are more cool. :D)

As it is, even before the LOTR movies came out, I did have a mental image of New Zealand as being something resembling an area from Lord Of The Rings as a kid--specifically Hobbiton. (Radio New Zealand's international broadcasts helped a lot in this regard--giving the general impression the entirety of the country was basically a giant idyllic not-quite-British countryside.)

Then I discovered the New Zealand All Blacks and international rugby :D

/do still tend to think of New Zealand as "Australia's Canada" (as in the more civilised, laid-back, understated and polite neighbour) :D
