DON’T WATCH: Yet Another Hobbit TV Spot…

Martin Freeman in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Oh great! A TV spot showing Martin Freeman being really good as Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. That’s not something we’ve seen for a while.

I mean, srsly, it’s like they’re trying to show us the whole film in tiny two minute sections. And it’s not as if the story hasn’t already been broken up. The Hobbit was only supposed to be one film, and currently it is three. Who knows, in a week’s time it may well be 900 tiny TV spots available on a YouTube playli…

Anyway, here’s the new TV spot, bringing the current total up to six:

And in true countdown form, here’s TV spot five:

And four:

And three:

And two:

But please don’t watch all of them (pause for comic effect), you don’t want to get into bad hobbits.
