Bilbo Baggins immortalized in song

A friend just IM'ed me a link with the following warning:

Do you 1) have QuickTime installed on your computer, 2) have a low enough opinion of Leonard Nimoy that nothing could ruin him for you, and 3) like LOTR enough that whatever Leonard Nimoy did couldn't ruin that for you?

If you say yes to all of those, and want a good laugh, go and enjoy The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins.

I actually think the tune is rather catchy, though what dancing girls with brightly colored striped sweatshirts have to do with The Hobbit is beyond me. In the "things to note" category, keep an eye out for the button one of the women is wearing that says, "Elect Leonard Nimoy to the U.N." It's visible in the, er, shoulder shrugging scene.
