Gigglebit: The Hobbit meets The Office (video)

20 Dec 2014

Gigglebit is Siliconrepublic’s daily dose of the funny and fantastic in science and tech, to help start your day on a lighter note. Today we look at what would happen if The Hobbit was mashed with The Office.

It was a great surprise this week to see actor Martin Freeman reprise his role as a put upon office worker only mashed with that of being a hapless hobbit.

The result is a magical concoction of wizards, orcs, elves and dwarves.

If you look closely you’ll realise that The Office of Middle Earth is not that much of a fantasy when you consider most office jobs in real life.

The wonderful mash-up between Middle Earth and Slough was dreamed up for Saturday Night Live.
