    Orlando Bloom Posted A Video Of Himself Shooting A Bow And Arrow Because Legolas Has "Still Got It"

    The form! The sass! The "They're taking the hobbits to Isengard" energy!

    Y'all — The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring is turning 20 this year. It's celebrating it's 20th anniversary. It is 20. YEARS. OLD.

    I! Am! The! Crypt! Keeper!

    Like any self-proclaimed Nerdy McNerd growing up in the early '00s, my life was LOTR. I loved everything about it — but I especially loved anything involving Aragorn, Gimli, and, of course, the arrow-shooting, shield-skateboard-wielding, oliphaunt-surfing elf Legolas.

    No offense to, like, everyone else.

    So you can imagine how aggressively I geeked out when, this weekend, none other than the Prince of Mirkwood himself — Orlando Bloom — posted a little ~something~ for all of the Legolas girls* out there: A video of himself shooting a bow and arrow expertly at a target alongside the simple caption, "Still got it 🧝🏼‍♂️."

    Would you just look at the form?!

    In the two decades since Fellowship's release, Orlando has had an incredible career, starring in everything from huge blockbusters like the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise to lovable rom-coms like Elizabethtown.

    And nowadays (when he's not showing off his ~skillz~), he's hanging out with his fiancé, Katy Perry.

    He also has two children: Daisy, whom he shares with Katy, and Flynn, who he shares with his previous partner, Miranda Kerr.

    And, as far as The Lord of the Rings franchise goes, it's also alive and well with a highly anticipated Amazon series in the works!

    So, yeah! There ya have it! I love the video, and it's super impressive, Orlando, but — ya know I have to say it — "THAT STILL ONLY COUNTS AS ONE!"
