The line between reality and fantasy appears to becoming more and more blurred in New Zealand as the Middle-earth Weather Forecast shows. Covering the climate predictions for Hobbiton is a guest Elvish weather reporter straight from Middle-earth itself. In reality, it is weatherman Tamati Coffey who impresses audience not only with his stylish Elvin garb and long locks, but also his mastery of the Elvish tongue of Sindarin. He is also quite endearing in his professionally masked bashfulness.
A creative campaign for Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit,' the Middle-earth Weather Forecast will delight 'Lord of the Ring' fans from around the world as much as it did locals since it has been posted on the PureNewZealand YouTube channel.
