In what is some strangely phenomenal bit of promotion for “the regional premiere of the acclaimed Irish bare-knuckle boxing documentary Knuckle” at this year’s Fantastic Fest, Elijah Wood challenged fellow former Hobbit, Dominic Monaghan to a debate followed by a round of boxing. Yes, you read that correctly, two hobbits fought each other. In a boxing ring.
What’s the dilemma of their debate? World of Warcraft. Wood hates it, Monaghan loves it.
Below is Wood’s challenge. Was he drunk when he made this video? It’s unsure. (But I’m going with yes. Most definitely, yes.)
Hah! I just about spit soda all over the screen at, “Where’s your Pippin now, bitch.”
Of course, Monaghan, not one to back down from a challenge, responded,
Then, in Austin, Texas the debate and subsequent boxing match went down. Who d’ya think would reign victorious? Of this Rumble in the Shire, who remains standing?
Ah, nuts. They settle their debate quite amicably and neither hobbit is knocked out. But whatever, if this fight was to go the whole nine yards, who would you pick to win?
