TheOneRing was asked to communicate to fans an opportunity to be cast in a national TV advertising campaign, and we did, but right during the height of “Hobbit” hype during Comic-Con. We decided to post it again to make sure all hopefuls get a chance to submit for a chance to be in the commercial. Full information is below, don’t miss out!

Consider yourself a Hobbit fanboy or fangirl? Then prove it to America, on TV.
