Like their counterparts in Mumbai, Bengaluru police also seems to have learnt the art of being quirky while conveying the message with ease. After many TV shows and series from Netflix, Bengaluru Police tickled our funny bone with an iconic reference from Lord of the Rings to pass an important message about honking.

Making it clear that unnecessary honking at a red light is not cool, they used the reference of the ‘Horn of Gondor’. The iconic war-horn that Boromir played by Sean Bean, carried with him during the events in Fellowship of the Ring.

“Unless you’re summoning your troops, no matter how loud you honk at the red signal, the traffic will simply not move,” the Bengaluru City Police wrote on Twitter urging people to say no to honking. With two images, of what you think vs what you really look like, the social media managers of the cops used one photo of gallant Boromir and another of a cartoon blowing a horn.

In the film, the horn was heard during the Skirmish at Amon Hen prior to Boromir’s death. so while he looked a daring hero, the cartoon is not exactly a someone we would hope to be. Tweeple were left in splits seeing the comparison and lauded them for their interesting campaign, while others suggested a few measures to deal with the situation.

And this is no the only #NoHonking message that has got thumbs up from the Twitterati. There earlier punny tweets too garnered lot of support from the users on the micro-blogging site.
