LOTR Themed Swedish Commercial
It was only a few minutes ago that I heard my sister scream for me to turn on the TV. Channel 2 of SVT, the largest TV company here in Sweden were airing a commersial about some kind of a olympic games documentary. It was named something like “The Olympic Rings” refering to the olympic symbol.
The thing that made me jump up and scream was what they used to play on the rings theme in the commersial. They used the LoTR trailer.
What I saw was the full third trailer played by Swedish actors dressed up as athletes. Instead of nazgûls there were hockey players from Finland, instead of the ring there were the five olympic rings and so on. It was hilarious! The whole show ended with “Spelen kan börja” (May the games begin) and someone dressed as Gandalf smashing his staff to the ground!Posted in Old Special Reports on January 21, 2002 by xoanon
