The Hobbit Meets The Office

In the original, U.K. version of The Office, the second lead, Tim, was played by Martin Freeman. (That character became Jim, played by John Krasinski, in the U.S.) Since Freeman is now starring in The Hobbit, a few fans have tried mashing up the movie and the show. The above is not the first attempt, but it is almost certainly the best.
