What Were They Thinking?

Leonard Nimoy released an album. "Mr. Spock's Songs From Outer Space". It's just as bad as you might think it is, and it included "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins" which is even worse than you might think it is. For years I've snickered about this song, which I've had on mp3 for quite some time.

And then it happened.

Someone pointed me to the "Ballad of Bilbo Baggins Music Video" This video.. it's just shocking! I mean, someone actually spent at least one afternoon choreographing this amazingly dorktacular dance number. They also convinced Leonard Nimoy that he ought to do it, and a number of attractive girls to participate in this ... this... atrocity.

Naturally I sent it to all my friends. I'm both apalled and delighted by it. Truly it's the dorkiest thing I've ever seen in my life - which has positive and negative worth.

The only thing that could possibly be dorkier would be a bunch of sci-fi nerds recreating this video on stage at a convention. And I'll bet dollars to donuts that at some point, somebody did exactly that.
