"Hobbit" Reaction Video Gets Its Own Reaction Video From "Hobbit" Cast

Then, a few hours later, Jackson returned to his Facebook page and posted a video of Hobbit cast members in full Elven costume watching the fan reaction video.

The "Happy Hobbit" video bloggers have yet to post a video in response to Jackson's awesomely sweet gesture, but it's probably going to be pretty amazing.

Update - 9:45 p.m. ET: The Happy Hobbit bloggers have indeed posted a "reaction video to the reaction video of the reaction video" (also known as "Hobbit-ception"). To say they are wildly excited would be an understatement.
