Watch A 'Lord Of The Rings' Superfan Ambush His Girlfriend With Quotes From The Movies

One does not simply stop quoting 'Lord of the Rings,' precious.

It's a well-known fact that "Lord of the Rings" fans love any opportunity to insert a quote from the movies into their daily lives. I mean, who among us hasn't referred to a beloved object/human/foodstuff as "my precioussssss!" in a full-on, spittle-flecked, Andy-Serkis-as-Gollum whisper? I did it myself just yesterday, with a plate of chicken wings. (They were really good chicken wings.)

But one fan might be taking it just a bit too far: Rather than engaging in mutual, consensual movie quoting, this guy has made a game of ambushing his unsuspecting girlfriend with "Lord of the Rings" quotes, popping up from a shadowy basement or behind a line of laundry to shout about the beacons of Gondor, etc.

According to a report from The Daily Dot, said fan films the moments as they happen and then snapchats them to friends for added entertainment value, leading one friend to compile them all into this remarkable video. It's worth mentioning that the guy's impressions are pretty spot-on, actually, but one gets the sense that the girlfriend does not entirely appreciate it. In fact, you might even say that she haaaaates it, precious.
