'Trolling Saruman' gets shot: viral video spotlight
Tuesday 12 July 2011
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.
The video was uploaded to YouTube by user PistolShrimps on July 10 and has, as of 12:30 GMT on July 11, been viewed 601,531 times and been 'liked' over 31,000 times.
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.
