Menace II Middle-earth Sketch Turns the Hobbits into Gun Toting Gangsters

When I saw the title of the PistolShrimps YouTube channel’s latest creation I thought to myself that it’d either be epically hilarious, or downright terrible, but after watching The Hobbit: Menace II Middle Earth, I’m glad to say it’s of the hilarious variety.

In this parody, which is set during The Hobbit trilogy, you will see the diminutive inhabitants of Middle-earth packing heat, blasting caps into orc asses, rap battling, and doing other gangster related things in a similar fashion to the old school gang movies like Boyz in the Hood or Menace II Society. Maybe I’m slap happy this afternoon, but I definitely laughed out loud a few times while watching the sketch, so check it out above and let me know if I’m on to something, or if I have the mind of a child by leaving a comment down below.
