The Hobbit, or There and Back AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

There was a shit-ton of actual news this weekend, but it just wouldn’t be Topless Robot if I didn’t ignore all that to bring you a commercial for the most terrifying puppet production of The Hobbit ever made by man and blessed by Satan. Oh, c’mon — you look at the horrifying, misshapen faces of the puppets, and listen to the faux-Old West saloon music, and you just try and tell me the Lord of Darkness isn’t involved in a big, big way. It’s like these guys took a look a at Ralph Bakshi’s Lord of the Rings movies, and said, “Not bad, but why’d he make all the characters so gosh-durned pretty? Well, we’ll fix that!” Thanks to bgoul030 for the tip.
