This is the giant Gollum statue installed in Wellington Airport in New Zealand by special effects maker Weta Workshop to remind everyone that's where they shoot the Hobbit movies. It's pretty terrifying. Not sure I could comfortably enjoy a Cinnabon with that staring at me. A creepy fat man either. WHAT ARE YOU AFTER, ME OR THE CINNAMON ROLL?!
Hit the jump for shots from different angles and a video of the installation.
Thanks to Soju, who hates flying almost as much as I do. Protip: get super drunk.
