Jump around? When Zelda wants me to to get high, so high then we can talk.

Who knew that if I was ever exposed to 80's Japanese video game mash-up rap, that I'd like it? Kinda got a Micheal Jackson "Thriller" vibe, no?

Old Japanese TV commercial?

I always wonder "what were the dancers thinking?"

Did they get into it? Were they rolling their eyes every second off-camera? Did they have any clue what it was about? And did they tell anyone about it afterwards?

Whoa! I never played Zelda and now I wish I had. It looks like piraty goodness.

Needs more Ditka.

Its hard to imagine this commercial being from the 80's, you know, with the game being from the 90's and all. From this page it seems the Japanese version was realeased in 1991 and the US version in 1992. Nitpicky, I know.

Link is hot.

So, Japan gets hot dancing Link, and we get nerdy guys rapping pathetically about Zelda? So not fair.

I love that they beat Ganon with the power of dance at the end. It's like Space Channel 5 meets Zelda.

I was thinking Captain Eo meets Zelda.

I was thinking disaster meets embarassment.

Don't be so harsh. It just needs some more cowbell.

Durhey : "we get nerdy guys rapping pathetically about Zelda?"

Wow. They don't even try to pretend that cool kids played Nintendo. Damn. Way to cut to the bone.

When do we get them dancing to the "My Humps" song?

Zelda was from the 80's for sure. I'm positive. I think youre talking about the sequel, Zelda:link to the past, Hellphish. Who can forget that gold cartridge?

I think it was a commercial for zelda 2. The horsehead guy with the mace is the boss for the first dungeon and the guy dancing behind link's left shoulder (our right) is clearly Error.

Nah, it says 'Super Famicom' at the start of the video - it's for A Link to the Past, which was 90s, definitely.

I ask - no, demand - that the Revolution controller allow me to recreate this video in the comfort of my own home. Give me that, Nintendo, and you've got me forever.

Aw hell, you had me at Touch Kirby's Magical Paintbrush.

The least they could have done is give Link and Zelda wigs so their hair colors were reasonably close to "reality".

I feel like everyone should have fallen over dead at the end of that dance, a la Michael Jackson's Moonwalker.
