Last week Orlando Bloom, Ian McKellen, and Evangeline Lilly finished shooting their final scenes for the third Hobbit movie, There And Back Again. For Orlando Bloom’s final day on set, he and Peter Jackson came up with something silly to say goodbye, as seen in the video below.
“A day after saying goodbye to Gandalf and Tauriel, it was time to farewell Legolas. What a great day it was, with Orlando battling a serious Orc for all 12 hours of shooting – part of the Battle of the 5 Armies for the third Hobbit movie. When we finally got the day done, we said goodbye to Orlando, had a couple of beers… and couldn’t resist doing this!” [Peter Jackson via THR]
The video shows Orlando Bloom’s reaction to 2007 viral song, “They Are Taking the Hobbits to Isengard”. The original has over two million hits, but this new remix already has more than four million hits. Which is coincidentally the number of hits I’ll have to take to the head to get this song out of it.
Let’s get silly:
