2010 Is Going to be Really, Really Awkward

This is video is, uh…science fiction-y…well, it’s set in far-off next year…okay, it has jetpacks and space helmets and a cyber-dog…you know what? Screw this. I’m posting this video entirely to punish you Tolkien bastards for mocking my lack of knowledge of the 53rd chapter of the Silmarillion or wherever the hell the hunt for Gollum happens. You can take your goddamn Heir of Isildur and shove him up your ass. Mock me again, and the punishment will be even more terrifying. You have been warned.

About Author

Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
