Video: Gollum and Fantine – Separated at Birth?

Watch this absolutely brilliant video of some guy singing “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Miserables in the style of Gollum from “The Hobbit.” It’s sweeping the Internet.

The more I watch, the more I think there’s some truth here behind the screamingly funny song. Gollum, the creature transformed by his carnal craving for his precious ring, and Fantine, the mother turned prostitute, are in the same state of being: Hell.

And we think Hell is a place. Silly us.

    The guy’s name is Ian Walters. And believe it or not, that’s exactly what he was thinking. It’s a silly song that is actually pretty deep, when you think about it.
