Here's The Weather, Delivered In Elvish By A New Zealand TV Host

With the theatrical release of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit just weeks away and the official premiere behind us, the world is slowly going to become more Lord of the Rings crazy. You’d think the Kiwis would be over the attention. No, not really. Turns out they’re still very much into it, as NZ TV host and weatherman Tamati Coffey demonstrates with this forecast, delivered mostly in Elvish… dressed as an elf.

If your Elvish is a bit rusty or, like mine, non-existent, subtitles are provided so you don’t miss out on what Coffey is actually saying. Though, considering this was shot a little over a week ago on TVNZ’s Breakfast, the forecast is probably a little out of date.

With two more films to go after the first instalment this Boxing Day, this is just the start of what I’m sure will be an avalanche of Middle Earth mania. Now, where did I leave my hobbit feet…?
