CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW CREEPY THIS OLD COMMERCIAL FOR ‘A LINK TO THE PAST’ IS?
Creepy medieval dude muttering unsettling nonsense to you on a subway? Check. Giant armored monster trying to kill you for playing video games on the train? Check. This TV spot for The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past borders on Midnight Meat Train territory. Even the audio alone is freaking terrifying! It’s almost implying that if you play this game, all of these terrible things will happen to you. Who wants to deal with that, really.
I love how it ends the creepy old dude asking the kid “Do I smell fear?” Nah bro, the poor kid clearly just pissed himself. Video games are dangerous.
BRB. Gonna’ go dig out my Game Boy Micro and copy of LttP. I’ll be playing with the lights ON, thank you very much.
