A Simple Walk Into Mordor: A Simple Walk Into Mordor - Episode 1

To celebrate the release of The Hobbit this month, Kerry Shawcross and Chris Demarais, two staff member of Rooster Teeth Productions (the producers of Red vs Blue, Immersion, and Achievement Hunter), will do in six days what took Frodo and Sam three movies to complete. They will walk the 120+ mile journey across New Zealand from the filming location of Hobbiton in Matamata to the filming location of Mount Doom, Mount Ngauruhoe. They will sleep on the ground, cross rivers, and of course, eat Lembas Bread. Documenting the entire journey on video, the two Rooster Teeth staff will prove that one does simply walk into Mordor.

    This series is one of my favorite things from RoosterTeeth. I have so much freaking respect for Chris and Kerry.

    I watched this for the first time a couple months ago. Watching it again I gained so much more respect for Chris and Kerry for doing this major Props!

    I'm dead sure the time limit made it all the more difficult.

    I couldn't really wrap my head around just how far that was until recently. I walked 100 miles in 48 hours and it made me realize just how incredible this is. I walked on the flat and did 20 miles less so the fact you all did what you did is incredible. Great job guys really.

    I saw you guys walk across the farm. At first I thought "Who the hell are they"? Then I saw this and thought "Holy shit those guys went across our farmland"! Fuck yeah, where I live was on the Internet and more importantly, on RoosterTeeth. I wonder if I was maybe caught in the footage in the background.

    This series was such an good idea.
    They should have Michael and Gavin do something like this next time if they get around to it!

    i think that last part was the story of chris and the electric fence in animated adventures.

    Now they should make an ongoing series called Kerry and Chris Walk to Places.

    This is a great series. Personally, I would never take a shortcut through agricultural land on a hike for the very reason that there are electric fences and lots of poo. Sometimes, the cows don't run away, though. Its really annoying when they follow you because they are curious.

    Okay, there are 4 options .. maybe this is too awesome, maybe they're my soul-mates, maybe I love LOTR too much or all four. Gosh *.*

    Wish they had other RT members on this. I can just imagine Joel and Dan (who plays Donut) being Pippin and the other one who's name I can't spell

    This is really awesome. I love The Lord of the Rings last week me and one my friends made the two towers out of gingerbread and each one weighed about 10lb. I have pictures of them on my profile.

    I do hope those guys have a decent amount of tramping (hiking) experience? That's not an easy walk.

    "One does not simply walk into Mordor."
    THAT'S WHAT THEY SAY.
    THAT'S NOT WHAT IS CORRECT.

    How fitting that they're using headlamps, or as Barry Wheeler from Alan Wake called them, his "flaming eye of Mordor."

    So incredibly awesome! I'm a LOTR fan too. Wish I was able to go to New Zealand. Can't wait to see the next episode, you guys are great!

    Would've been better if you guys put the rest of the crew as other LotR characters. I can imagine Gus riding a dragon wearing a spikey metal mask swinging a gigantic mace at Chris and Kerry.

  • Atlas3E

    Big difference between this and the real version: Sam and Frodo looked like shit from getting stabbed, beaten, etc. when they actually got to Mt Doom. But when Kerry and Chris get there, they're gonna be covered in electrical wire marks.
