And Now This Kiwi Weatherman Will Read The Forecast In Elvish

It's sort of been unofficial Lord of the Rings week here at Kotaku, hasn't it? Guess everyone's just excited about The Hobbit. This amazing video shows a weatherman in New Zealand going into full cosplay and reading the weather… in Elvish. He's not exactly Liv Tyler, but his accent sounds pretty good! This is some real dedication.

Do you understand Elvish? Do you think that if there had been a looming tropical storm in New Zealand, the guy would have reported that in Elvish too?

Feel free to discuss any of that or anything else, in English or Elvish, here or over in the Talk Amongst Yourselves forum. Have good conversations, and as always, le hannon a tholel.

    this guy i met on a project a few years ago confessed to me that he wrote all of his year twelve notes in elvish script. it sounds far fetched unless you know the guy...he was a complete Tolkien tragic. no prizes for guessing what field he worked in.

    It's not Elvish, it's Sindarin! Calling it Elvish is like saying in Australia we speak Human.
