If Lord of the Rings Characters Had Tinder

New Line Cinema


Most fictional characters are perfect. And even when they’re not, they are.

But put them on Tinder, and they become just like every other guy in his early twenties named Kyle who’s “looking for something real, swipe right if you think you can handle me.” Legolas would probably have a ton of mirror selfies. Aragorn would use bad puns. And Elrond? Don’t even get me started.

Look, what I’m trying to say is this: if any of the Lord of the Rings characters were on Tinder, we would think twice before swiping right.

Or would we? Probably. (But would we?)
