Alright New Zealand, Dial it Back a Notch


You know, I get that New Zealand has a lot of geek pride as the place where all the Lord of the Rings movies are/were filmed, but they’re going just a tad bit overboard with it at this point. Between their airports and now their weathermen, you really can’t think of the country at all at this point without hobbits and orcs coming to mind.

I guess that’s not a bad thing, but identifying an entire country by a singular movie series filmed there is a touch weird. Perhaps in America we’re just spoiled with thousands of movies shot here, but it seems a little strange to me.

But hey, all in good fun I suppose, and it’s your country, you can base your entire tourism industry around one thing if you want. Here’s a weatherman dressed as an elf doing the weather.
