Attention span suck? 99-second 'Lord of the Rings' clip explains all7/27/2012
The "Lord of the Rings" trilogy is pretty awesome, but it's a bit, shall we say, friggin' long. The whole trilogy runs for more than 11 hours, which is, quite frankly, a bit of a challenge for the average person's attention span. Maybe that's why this cool video that musically outlines the story in just a mere 99 seconds (cut down from an overwhelming 40,920 seconds) has already become such a hit. Performed showtunes-style, the talented duo describe Uruk-hai being beheaded "like a boss," compare Théoden to Benjamin Button, and admire Sam's spider-slaying skills. Our only complaint: They've got 99 seconds, yet the Orcs get just one — hit us!
