YouTube user Joe Azzopardi uploaded this video entitled "Guy torments girlfriend with Lord of The Rings quotes" on Tuesday and it has quickly spread across the internet.
The clip shows a young man continually quoting lines from the fantasy series at his unsuspecting partner.
BuzzFeed News spoke to Azzopardi about the video and he revealed it is not him in the clips but his old school friend Owen McCavana.
McCavana told BuzzFeed the short clips were recorded over the last year and half.
"It all started from me getting personal enjoyment out of scaring and surprising people (a bit cruel I know)," he said. "That coupled with me being the biggest Lord of the Rings fan was the pathway."
The 28-year-old said his girlfriend's initial reaction was to jump in surprise as she is easily scared but she's now got used to the prank and instead tends to just swear at him.
