Quest To Save Gollum This Weekend!

PRESS RELEASE: for immediate release

Date: 28 November 2003
From: Kotahi Ao

A last ditch attempt is being made this weekend to save Gollum.

Distressed by rumours that he may die on Monday, Kotahi Ao are planning direct action.

“Gollum was once a River Hobbit,” said Lalipa Nilubol. “I believe he is one of the fallen, corrupted by the Ring.”

She likens Gollum’s fate to that of The Earth. Tortured and manipulated by evil forces, both Gollum and the Earth are mere sad and pitiful shadows of their former glorious selves.

Yet underneath both lies organic compassion. An organisation working to save The Earth from a similar fate, the Kotahi Ao crew has been touched by Gollum. While working to save the Earth they also wish to save Gollum from his doom and turn him back into a Hobbit.

They are pleading with Peter Jackson and all his rich and famous Green companions to join them in their action. If they cannot save Gollum on film, then at least, they ask, please support Kotahi Ao to save all the other Gollums of this Earth.

Kotahi Ao plan to unleash their forces for good this weekend. (Details TBA)
