SNL does a skit on with Hobbits working in a modern office

SNL last night did a pretty convincing skit of the “Hobbit Office”.  It showed a countrified scene, almost Amish, of a wagon crossing a stream, to a low-rise suburban office building.
Indoors, all kinds of critters did their jobs at computer terminals with Windows 7 and spoke in their own Tolkien language.
Baggins was pretty convincing, keeping order.  What if they were working as debt collectors?
This has to be good PR for WB's "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" to be released next Wednesday.  A particular friend always goes to see a Hobbit or Tolkien or fantasy movie on Christmas eve, and reviews it in multiple tweets.
CNN also reports the mock of the Charlie Rose show interviewing contractors for CIA torture techniques, here.
Martin Freeman hosted.
