Homosexual hobbits? TBS spot has Sam, Frodo in 'Rings' scenes with love song in background
World Net Daily ^ | 04-12-06 | WestVirginiaRebel

Possibly taking a cue from the controversial film "Brokeback Mountain," marketers at the cable network TBS are broadcasting a promotion for this weekend's showing of two "Lord of the Rings" films that suggests characters Sam and Frodo are homosexual lovers.

Well, it'd not be my favorite joke but anyone who has watched the rest of the clips knows this whole series of ads on TBS are tongue in cheek. This isn't a serious portrayal, it's a joke.

One of the other ones says He falls down a hill, gets stabbed, twice... and this is just the first part! "It sucks to be Frodo!"

I remember back when I read the Lord of the Rings in middle school how I thought Sam and Frodo were a little on the sweet side. I just shrugged it off as a British thing. To this day though, I can't hear a man with a "British" accent and not think he might be a bit of a "swish".

British chicks are cool though, they aren't into the anorexic look as much as American women. I've always thought straight teeth were overrated anyway.

Hobbits aren't gay. Now Elves, on the other hand...

Ahem! I can assure you that Ralla is NOT gay. She may come across as butch, but she's just pissed-off.

It would appear that WorldNetDaily's meter is broken.

Re-edited movies trailers are all the rage! This is just tapping into an Internet fad. Now that we can edit movies so quickly and easily on our home computers, creative types are having fun with "new" movie trailers.

Vito might be a liberal, but Aragorn is definitely not gay. Good thing too, huh!

Very pro-war also.

Okay, it's obnoxious. But then it's TBS fercryinoutloud. And I have to admit LOL at the look on Gandalf's face...

I was more concerned with the one that referred to Galadriel as a "good witch."

Let me get this right - you think Arwen gave up her immortality for a few decades of caring conversation & snuggling with Aragorn????

Well she was obviously a rebel ;~D

That's why it bothered the rest of the elves so much.

The Gollum one is pretty funny too. And rewatching the Wizard of Orc one, it makes a little more sense.
