During a sketch called “Global Chaos Round Up” on The Daily Show, John Stewart brought up the recent government collapse in Tunisia and how that might sadden those around the world who wanted to visit the same desert where Star Wars was filmed.
He then laments “what am I suppose to do for spring break now? Go to New Zealand for the Lord Of The Rings tour … AGAIN?”. He continues with a bit more on visiting Hobbiton, using the typical tongue-planted-firmly-in-cheek satirical humor The Daily Show is known for.
Thought joking, I’d bet Stewart really has attended a LOTR tour, maybe on the advice of Tolkien geek and Comedy Central buddy Stephen Colbert. Check it out! The Daily Show
