A classic movie soundtrack has had a rather strange make-over, as a man recreated Concerning Hobbits from Lord Of The Rings on a children’s keyboard.
Bobby McGill said he was browsing in a toy shop near Oxford when he came across a keyboard which uses cat’s meowing sounds for notes, and couldn’t resist playing a tune.
Uploading the video to Twitter, he said: “I present to you, the Lord of the Rings theme tune, in meows.”
Perused a toy shop today and found some great stuff, including this piano which uses meows for notes. I present to you, the Lord of the Rings theme tune, in meows. pic.twitter.com/1j1cR5f3gR— Bobby McGill (@eaglemcgill) April 14, 2018
The video of the unusual remix now has over 14,000 views.
McGill said: “I learnt to play when I was younger and play whenever I have access to a piano, which as a young person who moves house fairly regularly, isn’t as much as I’d like.
“Maybe that would be a good replacement for an actual piano, for the time being!”
Twitter users loved the cat piano version, with one even commenting that her child had the exact same toy.
My son has the very same keyboard. If you value your sanity, avoid the nursery rhymes provided by the right hand demo button, which are traumatising— Pale Blurs. (@joetele) April 15, 2018
Ah, Concerning Hobbits. Except now I'm imagining them as little cat people.— Shenorai (@Shenorai) April 16, 2018
McGill added that he knows the song was in fact Concerning Hobbits, rather than the Lord Of The Rings theme tune, and that despite this little mistake, he is a big fan of the movie franchise.
