So that's why the cave troll was cranky

These animated LEGO Lord of the Rings videos are very funny

My new favorite YouTube channel is "BrotherhoodWorkshop", which is creating stop-motion animation videos featuring LEGO Lord of the Rings characters.


In this video, we watch the Fellowship of the Ring enter the Chamber of Mazarbul (yes, I looked it up), and of course Pippin ends up dropping the bucket to alert the bad guys. But what happens next? Watch the video.

The channel has six other videos to enjoy, and of course you can subscribe to be alerted when new ones come out. Great job, guys!
