The Office – Hobbit style!

by on 14/12/2014

Or is it the other way around? Saturday Night Live, who rarely disappoints brought us this lovely gem, featuring Martin Freeman’s Bilbo Baggins in a…surprising setting. What would Bilbo be doing once his adventure is over? Retreat to his little hobbit hole, smoke and relax, of course. But what if he chose a different path? In this 5 minute sketch we get to see what would happen if he would work in an office, surrounded by co-workers such as Gollum, Gandalf, Legolas, Tauriel and even the random orc.

It’s all very civilized, I promise. All murderous intents were left behind in Middle Earth and well, as “Bilbo” put it, “well, you don’t choose the people you work with”. I can relate, I can relate.

Take a look, enjoy and let imagine: if only most offices were as fun…
