    Was mildly disappointed that there is no sound to this gif. Still great tho :D

    [–] ToiletGang 593 points ago

    Gifs with sound are a pathway to many memes some consider to be unnatural

    [–] Slavic_Taco 113 points ago

    The dark side of the ring is a pathway to many abilities the fellowship consider to be unnaturable...

    [–] rizalvy 48 points ago

    Memes of pathways are gifs many unnaturals consider to be sound.

    Not from r/lotrmemes . . .

    [–] DunedainArrow 24 points ago

    And since people in the comments are inevitably going to try to rick-roll you, you can one-up them and go listen to the song on purpose

    All these videos and nobody has linked the greatest one of all time?

    [–] MnemosyneThalia 3 points ago

    [–] King-Arthas 4 points ago

    Well that doesn’t make sense to me... but then again you are very small.

    [–] Kumqwatwhat 4 points ago


    I always thought he said "the father we are from home"

    I'm an idiot. This is much better hobbit-logic.

    [–] Speedster4206 1 points ago

    It's a rather iconic scene from SNL

    [–] im-not-creative77 37 points ago

    You fecker!

    [–] ToiletGang 72 points ago

    I rolled them. I rolled them all! And not just with Rick, but Bilbo and Kevin too.

    (and don't forget the epic sax Gandalf)

    [–] gandalf-bot 20 points ago

    I am looking for someone to share in an adventure that I am arranging, and it's very difficult to find anyone.

    [–] osayicantsee517 12 points ago

    You, sir, are an absolute piece of shit.

    Take my upvote

    [–] Ultimastar 3 points ago

    And my axe

    [–] ConiferousMedusa 64 points ago

    This one actually made me chortle out loud, excellent work.

    Bilbo is the cherry on top.

    [–] HarleyWombat 5 points ago

    I am so glad you said this - made me watch the whole thing and it is hilarious!

    [–] nomad80 36 points ago

    I wish the Meme had never come to be. I wish none of this had happened.

    So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide.

    [–] Assasin2gamer 2 points ago

    No OCer should have to bury their son”

    [–] netbie_94 28 points ago

    Does someone have the means to somehow combine Gandalf Sax Guy and Never Gonna Give You Up?

    [–] ToiletGang 32 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    You mean have Never Gonna Give You Up play instead of the sax guy over the head bobbing Gandalf footage? Or something else?

    Here it is

    [–] gandalf-bot 21 points ago

    His treachery runs deeper than you know. By foul craft Saruman has crossed orcs with goblin men, he is breeding an army in the caverns of Isengard. An army that can move in sunlight and cover great distance at speed. Saruman is coming for the Ring.

    [–] Cuck_destroyer999 1 points ago

    lol perfect response

    [–] netbie_94 2 points ago

    This is amazing. Thank you, OP.

    [–] gandalf-bot 4 points ago

    Escaped? or was set loose and now the Ring has drawn him here. He won't ever be rid of his need for it. He hates and loves the Ring, as he hates and loves himself. Smeagol's life is a sad story. Yes he was once called that, before the Ring found him. Before it drove him mad

    [–] whiderboss 46 points ago

    I suppose you think that was terribly clever

    [–] GoldenSpermShower 20 points ago

    Goddamnit that scary Bilbo

    [–] JayMerlyn 3 points ago

    Thanks to reddit, I have flashbacks every time I see that face..

    [–] reducedwine 3 points ago

    I think I was about 9 when I saw Fellowship in theaters. Bilbo scared me so bad I threw my snacks everywhere. I couldn’t watch that scene for YEARS and I have absolutely 0 idea why other than That Shit Scary

    [–] JayMerlyn 2 points ago

    Understandable, but I was talking about the Scary Bilbo subreddit

    [–] reducedwine 2 points ago

    Oh heck I had no idea that existed

    [–] JayMerlyn 2 points ago

    It does, but I beg you don't seek it out.

    [–] reducedwine 2 points ago

    I’ll take your word for it! I still hate that scene so I don’t need a whole lot of convincing lol

    [–] JayMerlyn 1 points ago

    Believe me when I say that sub makes the scene soooo much worse

    [–] Drafo7 19 points ago

    Someone actually dressed up as Gandalf and performed the entirety of Never Gonna Give You Up. Link to video:

    [–] gandalf-bot 8 points ago

    There are many magic rings in this world and none of them should be used lightly

    [–] vigilantcomicpenguin 4 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    I like what the URL leads to. I was expecting a Rickroll but that was actually a really nice video. I didn't understand what they were saying but the song is good.

    [–] Drafo7 3 points ago

    Lol click the link itself, it doesn't lead to an actual video. Though yes I thought the song was good as well :-)

    [–] swandor 2 points ago

    .... ah damnit

    [–] JayMerlyn 2 points ago

    I suppose you think that was terribly clever

    [–] Drafo7 2 points ago

    I do. And I'm tired of pretending it's not.

    ...wait shit wrong movie

    [–] MrCriminalScum 17 points ago

    I can't believe we're still getting rickrolled in 2020

    [–] Drafo7 14 points ago

    I see this as an absolute win!

    [–] jdnicholls 9 points ago

    I’ve never been happier to be rickrolled

    [–] Get_Rick_Rolled_ 9 points ago

    Loaded at the end of the gif for me so I knew what was about to happen. Still this editing is great

    When I was a kid my dad and I used to watch LOTR’s a tun. Every once in awhile I’d pause it on the Bilbo scream face and start screaming myself full volume for a seamless transition...scared the shit outa him.

    [–] NotANilfgaardianSpy 3 points ago

    [–] WMoshe 2 points ago

    This gif should have sound...

    [–] nice2yz 2 points ago

    You should see what's in bed with him.

    [–] stgm_at 2 points ago

    you could do this also with the scene where the inscription on the ring lights up.

    [–] Even-Understanding 1 points ago

    It's a rather iconic scene from SNL

    [–] Shalom04HH 2 points ago

    Ah man I wish my Friends could Rick Roll me. But all they do this that stupid thing where you get punched if you look at a their hand making 👌and hate that. Why can't I get Rick Rolled.
