Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.
A true fan's love for a character is a beautiful thing. No actor's mistake, no poorly drawn caricature, no bizarre insectoid 4chan slash can mitigate the adoration of the adoring toward the adored.
Not even this.
Legolas Greenleaf, elven prince of Middle Earth, inspires more fandom than most, being possessed of beauty beyond the lot of mortals. Naturally, he was played in the Lord of the Rings films by British heartthrob Orlando Bloom, also possessed of beauty beyond the lot of mortals.
Until the Internet got a hold of them both.
First, it Gersbermed the previously eloquent and dashing Legolas, turning him into a speech-impaired ugly duckling meme. Heck, sometimes you just want to mess with something perfect, right? Bring it down to your gum-chewing, mouth-breathing level.
Then Tumblr animated it.
