Well, there's Dasher and Dancer and Donner and Blitzen. Comet and Cupid and ... wait, no. Sorry, those are reindeer. Still, naming all 12 dwarves from The Hobbit is a multi-tiered challenge. Are the folks behind the film up to the challenge? And who can recite them the fastest?

Not only is this a bit of a tongue twister, but the names rhyme and are, frankly, pretty ridiculous, so it would be hard to give anyone too rough a time if they weren't a big enough fan to rattle off all the dwarves without forgetting one or with their tongues tied up in knots.

Yet, surprisingly enough, all the people filmed handled it with aplomb and managed to recite all the names in under 10 seconds. Well, except for Ian McKellen, but he was just letting us enjoy his smooth and velvety man-voice, so it can't be helped.

So who was the fastest? Watch on to find out!
