“I was ten when I found out that the Dark Lord created us from elves. That blew my mind. It's so weird to say, but sometimes when I look in the mirror I can see what I would have looked like.”
This Facebook group is a hilarious parody of the cutlural phenomenon, ‘Humans of New York’.
Filmmaker Harry Aspinwall brilliantly created ‘Orcs of New York’, which aims to give a face to the “Mordor diaspora in New York, one orc at a time”.
The Facebook group features street photographs of migrant orcs who have supposedly left Mordor in pursuit of a better life in the Big Apple. The photos are accompanied with quotes that include references to The Lord of the Rings mythology, including one orc who was bogged down by the stress of moving to a big city, but eventually says, “I started thinking about how I grew up in Gorgoroth under the flaming eye of Barad-Dur, and if I can get through that I can probably do just about anything”.
Head over to their Facebook group to continue reading.
