Outside LOTRO: Colbert Report Ring of Power

August 2, 2011

Out-of-Game

Typically we here at CSTM stay far far away from politics and generally other things from real life that seem to strive to destroy fun in the real world we sometimes are forced to live in.

However, this clip from the Colbert Report attempting to explaining the debt crisis with Lord of the Rings characters is simply too good to pass up. Enjoy!

 

Special thank you to Draculetta of the Meneldor Server for sharing this link with us!

    Just a note: He doesn’t usually wear a ring on his right hand – the ring on his right hand is the One Ring :P

    That is awesome. I should definitely use Lord of the Rings to explain things in the future.

    LOl, over here in the UK, it clearly can’t play, what we see instead is the dude in front of a US flag and this text:

    Dear Great Britain,
    We’re terribly sorry, but full video clips of the Colbert report are not available. But please don’t send any red coats in retaliation this time, as you CAN experience the truthiness at FXUK

    ^^thought that was worth sharing to those who just get the video! :D

    Since I am from Europe, then I am not that familiar with all the hobbits in this story. But I think it is hilarious nevertheless, sarcasm and irony are so fun when you /poke the politics with a /laugh

    I love how, by the end, he was just pulling out all of his LotR stuff just to show it off, not because it had anything to do with the joke. ;P

    I love a) the significance of the sword, i.e. none at all escept that he has it, and b) that he wants to be Faramir.

    He also has one elvish ear!

    Great clip. There are people at my work who really think he is a conservative talk show host! (rather than stretch the boundaries to embrace the sarcasm)
