Who can forget the classic tale of The Lord of the Rings? In case you have, Neil Cicierega has done us the favor of creating a video refresher course on the series, and it seems like he has a strong understanding of J.R.P.G. Torkelson’s classic The Lorne of the Rings novels.
He goes over all three books–The Friendship of the Rim, Look at Those Rings: The Two Princes, and A League of Their Own: The Return To Innocence–and doesn’t skip over a single major plot point. We are reminded that the adventure started in The Sewer, a region of Google Earth, and focused on the journey of hobo Fraggle Batches and his servant Samsclub Gunjeans, who were tasked by magical old man Garfield The Great to take The Bad Ring and destroy it in a volcano.
But wait, let’s not forget that the protagonists faced adversity! Dark wizard Starman, who was under the control of the eye of great evil Simon, wanted the ring for himself. Over the remainder of the first book and the final two, Fraggle and Samsclub meet allies including Sliders, Aerosmith, Lord Efron, Grandfunk, Bonercar, Legalize Greenleaf, a smurf named Gumball (son of Groin), and other kind folks who help them on their dangerous quest.
We thought our grasp of The Lorne of the Rings was pretty firm, but that’s apparently not the case, because we learned so many things from this video. We had somehow completely forgotten all about the castle of Mario Tennis, and we are ashamed.
