Boots Memes from teh movie/s

Are folks having fun with The Hobbit movie? I know Downers are creating running gags, but has An Unexpected Journey made any dint on internet culture? Has it inspired any memes, memorable or otherwise?

For instance, there's this one: cover of "Misty Mountains" with kazoo

Share any you find--or make yourself--here!

Coming Someday

How about one-third of a meme for one-third of a movie? Having not seen the entire story on screen yet -- and with no prospects for doing so for another two years -- I suppose "Coming Someday" might do for The Hobbit film adaptation.

ha ha! I think my fav "Majestic Thorin" is

"everybody stay back . . . I'm about to unleash my MAJESTY."

Although "Majestic Puppy Eyes" is a close second.

That's my favourite too! Thorin's Majesty seems to be the Hobbit equivalent of the Disco King... though, when I think of it, someone else might be more suited for this title *coughThrandycough* - he just begs a disco ball!

Anyways, here's one that I saw some time ago:

The Radagast one has legs too, especially when mixed up with an old fave:

In addition to Majestic Thorin, there's also Wannabe Majestic Kili and Be Cool Bro Fili.





Wannabe Majestic Kili reached such proportions that somebody trolled Aidan Turner's Wikipedia page:

There's not quite as many Smaug (or successful ones) memes as of yet, but this cross-over is rather humorous:



Or this:



I guess with the next two films there should be some more.

Found at least three others that appear more than once (besides the aforementioned), such as this one:





Bilbo really is a Good Guy Greg, when you think of it.



That freedom smell. So majestic.

Agan, we can probably think of Gal55 as a dwarfish character exiled from her homeland.

A new theme for memes, sort of:

Sorry, MCRmyGirl4ev, but I didn't check for threads from before AUJ came out because we'd have to see the movie first to make the memes. Your thread is called LotR Memes!, so I assume it is about the first trilogy. This one is to explore new memes being made based on the new Hobbit movies.

For instance, an overwhelming number appear to be devoted to Thorin, so that suggests that AUJ appears to be making the dwarves very popular. Another way of saying this is AUJ is providing more fodder about dwarves than about hobbits.

They are also on different forums, as I thought this forum might allow for more discussion about the effect of the movies rather than just some good laughs over the memes.

Perhaps if the Mods think they are too similar they can merge the threads?

Having it be trilogy-only wasn't really my intention, but that's okay. This seems to be kicking off, so a merge might be possible. Even so, if it doesn't happen, it's not like I'm going to hold it against you or anything. This is funny, let's keep it that way!

The little hipster in me is slightly upset about this.

While there are literally a million different Thorin memes, this one was particularly amazing, for obvious reasons.

Hope this works... If you can't see it for some reason, and you want to, I'll friend any Downer on FB. Just let me know that I know you from here.

OLD BILBO: "And as we all know, people with psychological problems attract dragons."

I have this weird notion to think that dragons are now a big cover-up for nervous breakdowns, whenever I see scenes from the movie.

... Great, now the film(s) are a psychological thriller.
