Somewhere in Portland, Gandalf Is Riding Around on a Unicycle, Playing the Bagpipes

His name is the Unipiper, and he is somehow not Fred Armisen's newest character on Portlandia. He is an actual human being (and America's Got Talent contestant) in Portland who was recently caught on video riding a unicycle and playing a bagpipes in full Gandalf regalia. His Facebook page reads, "Anyone else getting like really excited for the release of The Hobbit!??!?" Well, we thought we were, but in comparison to this guy, we might as well just wait for the DVD.
