Your elf eyes won't see his arrow coming.

I call him a real-life Legolas, but as the "fastest archer alive," Lars Andersen is reportedly capabale of firing three arrows in 0.6 second—which makes him faster than Legolas.

You need to see the title. It's genius.

They gave us Bob's Burgers erotica. They gave us Doctor Whore, Game of Bones, and the wonderfully titled Gnardians of the Galaxy: 50 Shades of Groot. Now the porn parody purveyors at Woodrocket have a new film for us, and we're pretty surprised it hadn't been done yet. Then again, maybe we're glad about that, considering the source material.
