The Beatles in The Lord of the Rings

Deepfake video technology may be scary when applied to news, or the concept of using actors without paying them to act. But it also gives us delights like The Beatles starring in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. In this video, Paul McCartney is Frodo, George Harrison is Gandalf, Ringo Starr is Samwise, and John Lennon is Gollum. However, if producer Alex Skorkin had dispensed with the deep fake faces and just gone with the music mix, this still would have been delightful. Also- why didn't he call it Lord of the Ringo?
