Tolkien tribute: Lord of the Rings spoof for libraries

In honor of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” being released in theaters this week, we decided to delve into our treasure trove and dig up this absolute gem of a video.

“The Lord of the Libraries” was created by Emmy award winner Chris Martin.  It’s a spoof of “Lord of the Rings” that was done to promote the libraries at the University of Kansas (KU) and at other Kansas colleges.  Martin is a 2003 KU film graduate that won an Emmy for his work on “Heroes”.

The movie is 18 minutes long, but we highly recommend it to any fan of libraries, Tolkien or humor. Enjoy!
