A YouTube video from Polish prankster SA Wardega in which he stops a tram while dressed as the wizard Gandalf from J.R.R. Tolkien's The Fellowship of The Ring is rapidly approaching four million views.

In the clip, which was released to coincide with the Polish premiere of the latest Hobbit sequel, Wardega stands on the tracks and tells a Polish tram-driver "You shall not pass!"

The video is a reenactment of a scene from Peter Jackson's film adaptation The Fellowship of the Ring, in which Gandalf attempts to block the advance of a winged beast known as a Balrog. Jackson’s latest film is called The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

A number of other people dressed as Middle Earth characters joined Wardega in the prank.
