The Peninsular War meets The Lord of the Rings

Here's a bit of visual and musical whimsy for you.  Actor Sean Bean played Richard Sharpe in the made-for-TV movies of Bernard Cornwell's well-known series of novels.  He also played Boromir in the film adaptation of Tolkien's 'The Lord of the Rings'.

Someone has taken footage of Boromir from the latter movie, and combined it with the iconic song from the Sharpe series, 'Over the Hills and Far Away'.  It's fun to see - and hear - the juxtaposition.
