We love giving away free stuff here at The Bonus View whenever we have the opportunity. Last week, we offered you the chance to win all three ‘Lord of the Rings’ movies on Blu-ray in a contest we called Tweets from Middle Earth. All you had to do was imagine that the ‘Rings’ characters had internet access and a juvenile mentality to tweet whatever came into their heads. Once again, we got a bunch of great entries. Follow after the break to see who won.
Each contestant was allowed five tweets. Here are some of my favorites.
TheRealFrodo: I can see it taking them. They all want it! I must go. @SamTheGardner will not understand.
SamTheGardner: I won’t leave you, @TheRealFrodo! @GandalfTheGrey said “Dont you leave him” & I wont!
GandalfTheGrey: Auto reply: AFK for a few weeks. No Blackberry signal where I will be.
Balrog: Magneto just broke into my house, threw me down a damn near bottomless pit AND THEN off a mountain. WTF.
Froggobaggins: @gandolfwiz seriously we could have taken the eagles the whole time! #FML
Samthewise: @frodobaggins IKR! All that walking for what!? #FML
SamWiseMe: RIP Gandalf…oops nevermind.
Frodo: zzz, studying. so boring
Gandalf: @Frodo, keep tweeting while u’re studying and U shall NOT pass!
In a contest like this, it’s not really possible to say that one entry is necessarily better than the others. They were all pretty good (even those that didn’t get mentioned above). But this one from BambooLounge made me laugh the hardest:
SamWiseGuy: @ShireTwibe Sry 4 cuttn out 1/2hr early…thought story ended :*(
I feel SamWiseGuy’s pain. That pretty much sums up my own feelings towards the ‘Rings’ trilogy. Good movies, but geez they go on and on and on, don’t they? Especially the last one, which has about a dozen endings before the credits roll.
Congratulations to BambooLounge! Everyone else, don’t feel left out if you didn’t win. We’re going to give you another chance to win a free Blu-ray later today. Stay tuned!
