The Lord of the Ring’s director Peter Jackson uploaded a video entitled “Goodbye Orlando” on Sunday, after Orlando Bloom finished ”battling a serious Orc for all 12 hours of shooting – part of the Battle of the 5 Armies for the third Hobbit movie.”
On his Facebook page, the Oscar-winning Jackson explained that he just “couldn’t resist” having the actor sing along with the electronic song dedicated to a single line his character, Legolas, shouts in The Two Towers after spotting the Uruks: ”They’re Taking the Hobbits to Isengard.” The footage above shows Orlando playing peek-a-boo with an iPad showing the video as he sings/shouts along with the chorus.
The music video itself–which has lines from Gollum and Celeborn interjected intermittently–went viral back in 2005 with accompanying Legos, The Office, and World of Warcraft renditions. Feeling nostalgically inspired? Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to make your own “Hobbits to Isengard” mashup.
