That Time Police Used Gollum To Help Find A Missing Ring

Police from Solihull, West Midlands in the UK took extreme measures recently while trying to find a missing ring – they used a nerd reference. But they didn’t stop there, they threw in some puns too. “We apologise for the ‘Ring’ puns today, it’s difficult to break the hobbit.”

Gollum Does A Lord of the Rings Rendition Of Donnie Darko’s Mad World

Originally recorded by Tears for Fears, “Mad World” was covered by Michael Andrews and Gary Jules for the movie Donnie Darko. Here’s Gollum singing it. But it’s not just a cover, it’s Gollum singing about stuff that happens in Lord of the Rings to the tune of the song. Pretty creative if you ask me. But it’s not the first time! You may remember the same guy doing a song from Les Misérables. But what is up with the dude in the background?

Gollum Mourns the Loss of His Precious By Singing “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Misérables. Like You Do. [VIDEO]

It took me a few seconds to get into YouTube user Ijameswalters, as Gollum, singing “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Misérables. But then he changed the “I”s to “we”s and the lyrics started mentioning nasty Hobbitses, and by 3:20 I’d completely lost it.

Giant Gollum Statue’s Only Wish is to Catch a Fish, So Juicy Sweeeeet!

This is the most wonderfully random statue I have ever seen. It’s not weird at all that the airport in Wellington, New Zealand would be home to a Lord of the Rings statue in the first place… but a ginormous Gollum coming out of the wall and reaching across the room for a similarly oversized fish? That’s unexpected. And awesome. And also kind of creepy.

The 13m statue was created by Weta as a promotion for The Hobbit (naturally), but I for one will be very disappointed if it gets taken down after the first movie is out. Or all three movies. Or ever. I want people to fly into the Wellington airport 500 years from now and wonder what we were all on in the 21st century.

Hint the jump for more creepy wonderment.
