Web Video: Lord of the Weed

"Es war einmal, südlich der Grasplantagen von Mittelerde..."
"Once upon a time, south of the weed plantations of Middle-earth..."

Everything is fine and peaceful in Middle-earth. Humans, elves, halflings, dwarves and orcs live in perfect harmony, for they share a common pleasure: Smoking weed. Only one day Sauron "the orc king" has a little bit too much of a good time — and the weed starts getting slim...

If you want to find out more: There are versions on YouTube with English subtitles starting here.


Tropes:

  • Answer Cut: Gandalf debates with himself what to do now that Bilbo has entrusted him with the One Ring: "I have two options: I could either consult the Book of Infinite Knowledge to protect the poor and the weak from evil, or..." Cut to Gandalf smoking weed.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: When Gandalf asks Bilbo for more drugs, we get the following list:
    Bilbo: What do you need? I can get you anything: Speed, weed, crack, heroin, LSD, ecstasy, peace, shit, cocaine, jelly babies...
    • In the original German version, he also has Hardcore Bondage and SM porn on his list. Which turns the whole list into a hilarious combination of Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking and Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick. When Galdalf asks for snuff however, Bilbo just answers "Piss off!"
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Happens several times.
  • Child Hater: Gandalf wasn't trying to amuse the hobbit kids, he is just a bad shot.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Bilbo reacts rather strongly to the prospect of having to give up the ring.
  • Gag Dub
  • German Humour
  • Shout-Out:
    • Both "Sinnlos in Mittelerde" and "Jelly Babies" are references to that other German Gag Dub.
    • The reference to Eight MM Bilbo gives while watching with Gandalf the preparations for Wacken note .
  • Straight Gay: Frodo, Bilbo and Gandalf.
    Frodo: Gandalf, I love you!
    Gandalf: Hahaha ... poof.
  • The Stoner: All of the characters, to varying degrees.
