Ballad of Bilbo Baggins

I came across this years ago but even that was years after the fact, so there are probably some people out there that still have not been subjected to this insanity so here ya go.




What's with those girl's shrugging? Is that what passed for keen dance moves back then?

Dude, if I hadn't just got up I'd swear I was drunk out of my gourd looking at this vid.

I'll check on this after work so I can hear. I don't get to watch video with sound at work, unless my boss is away for the day, but shhhhhh don't tell her I said that :P

I thought it was bizarre Mary.

Charles I found it hard to believe when I first heard it too.

And you just can't go wrong with them sexy sweatshirts! ROWR!

I have to wonder, did the emotionless, logical character of Spock drive Leonard Nimoy to commit such lunacy? (this is all assuming this silly video came out sometime during his acting in Startrek).

But I dunno...I think I like this better than the worst music video ever...Yes, John forwarded that to me....oh dear.

I am honestly at a loss for words with both this video and the worst music video. which is why I love it when you post these, babe!

As for the shrugging, it was absolutely "keen" to dance that way. Plus, Spock was the "grooviest!" Honestly, though, he's always made me shrug without the video. I think it's a reaction, not totally sure.......

Erin West said...

Debster, I can totally picture you sitting there watching old-school Star Trek and just:

*Shrug*
*Shrug*
*Shruggedy shrug*

Although really I think that goofy bowlegged rabbit hop is better than the shrug.

The Debster said...

if I were not at work, I totally would have shrugged. But the guys here already think I'm odd enough.

Best not to add to the pot.

Erin West said...

c'mon they'd think you were flat out crazy if you did the bowlegged rabbit hop. so shrugging isn't so bad.

He's the only one w/o pointy ears!

I hope WETA considers those costumes for the new Hobbit movie.

David J. West said...

We can only hope.

I had such a crush on that pointy eared guy when I was little. You just burst my fantasy bubble. Thanks a bunch.
