Lord of the Rings-themed video titled "Trolling Saruman" has gone viral on YouTube, having been viewed over 600,000 times in 24 hours and sitting in third on YouTube's "most watched today" chart.
" Trolling Saruman" is edited from an extended edition of the Lord of the Rings franchise and features the evil wizard Saruman singing " Trololo," much to the annoyance of Frodo, Gandalf, Gimli and the others, until eventually Legolas shoots Saruman, who falls to a rather messy death.

Pistolshrimps.com is well known for editing popular films in offbeat ways and has applied similar treatment to films such as Star Wars and Harry Potter.
