This Hobbit Trailer Parody Blends Tolkien with The Wolf of Wall Street

Video maker Richard Trammel created a hilarious Hobbit trailer parody by giving the film a raucous fake trailer in the style of the Wolf of Wall Street. The epic fantasy’s trailer has been cleverly edited to match the trailer for the Oscar nominated movie The Wolf of Wall Street, with rapid cuts and Kanye West’s Black Skinhead playing over it. The trailer also has the repeated use of the word ‘dwarves’ that mimics the Wolf of Wall Street trailer’s use of ‘more.'

This Hobbit trailer is a hilarious send-up of the epic quest and large cast of the film, cutting a fantasy film with the style of a modern dark comedy. The resulting fake trailer is an amusing tribute to both Tolkien and one of the most acclaimed films of 2013.
