The Lord of the Rings franchise has spawned a lot of memes of over the years but this little diddy has to be my favorite. Let me set the scene for you. The year was 2005, three years after the release of The Lord to the Rings: The Two Towers (2002). On August 18th of this fateful year, an artist named Erwin Beekveld submitted a video called "They're Taking the Hobbits to Isengard" to Albino Blacksheep (how many of you remember that?) and everything exploded from there.
The video spawned many other versions and GIF sets abound. At some point, it even reached the cast of the Lord of the Rings franchise causing an event which, I feel, is akin to being able to divide by zero.
So on this, the 10th Anniversary of taking the hobbits to Isengard, I just want to thank the internet. You've been great.
What's your favorite LOTR meme?
