What's with the name?

Who Knew Dwarves Could Rap? Plus, A Really Brief, Blurry Look At The Hobbit’s Smaug. [VIDEO]


A new TV spot for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has been floating around today. Technically, it includes Smaug but it’s so lacking in actual substance we felt it would be dishonest to give a post to you that presented this as our first look at the famous dragon (though we reserve the right to toy with your geek emotions at a later date). Plus, there’s a chance it could not be Smaug. So we decided to post this incredibly high-production music video from The Hillywood Show called “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Parody,” (because it’s awesome) and place the TV spot after the jump if you want to give it a watch (which you probably will because, Hobbit). It also gives me an excuse to post this gif:

And here’s Maybe-Smaug. Blink and you’ll miss him.

    Am I blind? I’ve watched it three times. Where is Smaug?

    Oooh…around 0:06-0:07! No, he doesn’t look red, but he’s also rather blurry. I hope that’s him, and I do hope he actually is red, but if that isn’t a dragon I really don’t know what it could be…

    Has anyone else noticed, with each successive trailer Bilbo gets to be more and more heroic? :)

    Sorry, every time I watch it, I forget to look for Smaug and I get caught up in Richard Armitage.
