Zelda in Real Life by Smosh

JordanMarch 28th, 2013 by Jordan

It has always been an entertaining distraction to think about what video games would be like in real life. With all the absurdities and exaggerations that our games bring to us daily, the thought those applied to our daily reality is interesting to say the least.

In another of their famously over-the-top videos, comedy group Smosh has brought us their own take on this concept as it pertains to the Zelda series. Click the jump to see all their goofy antics, but be warned – the video has a lot of cursing so if you’re not a fan of that sort of thing be careful.

Well, that was entertaining. I enjoyed all the ways they managed to kill off the Old Man (despite it never actually working) and the contrasts between things in Link’s world and things in our world are… interesting. Honestly, with the experiences he had here, I probably would have lasted about the same amount of time.

How did you like the video? Did you enjoy all the goofy references? How about the narrator and the old man? Let us know in the comments!

    Le sigh… Poor Link, he’s had a rough time.

    • EzioCRossfire

      He does

      • ShadowBeast

        True, true.

  • EzioCRossfire

    What’s so bad about cussing. :P

    • http://www.triforcetalk9.blogspot.com/ Linkfan99

      It’s bad in inappropriate situations. I don’t do it. When others do, I can put up with it as long as it’s not a bad time/place (ie. at school, etc.)

      • EzioCRossfire

        Ya, you can always expect it from smosh. But what is a cuss really?

        • http://www.triforcetalk9.blogspot.com/ Linkfan99

          What do you mean by what is a cuss? It’s like…. a cuss word…..

          • EzioCRossfire

            I just think cuss words are words society has labeled bad, but when you say their other words it’s O.K.

            I don’t really mind cussing.

          • http://www.triforcetalk9.blogspot.com/ Linkfan99

            True. It’s just our interpretation of what is bad. If someone said the f-bomb in Swahilian right now, (probably) NONE of us would even think twice about it. We’re just trying to put sounds with bad things.

      • Sage of Winds

        I think that the amount of cussing in this video isn’t as bad as Smosh’s previous videos. I can tolerate cussing, but even I stopped watching them for a time because of the overuse of it.

  • LinkyKins

    Hey! I saw this a couple days ago, and wondered why it wasn’t on Zelda Dungeon. And here it is! (:

  • oozy the wolf

    saw this coming last week

  • bluetoad

    lol Goron gay moron
    And it was out of character for Link to throw away the empty bottle and say Jesus. But the video was still funny.

  • JuicieJ

    “Oh, yeah, and he can talk now, too.” XD

  • Thing

    This was halarious XD

  • gamer

    that was horrible.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/bs88145 bs8814

      It wasnt as good as their others “in real life” but hopefully they will make a better sequel.
      I have been following Smosh since 06 and they generally do justice to LoZ (as they like it) so this one was a bit of a one off hopefully…

      • Skull Kid

        I think they’re losing their touch. It’s a shame really, because they were really funny in the past. But as they always say, all good things must die.

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bs88145 bs8814

          I have to disagree with you, they did go through a month were all the videos were crap but they picked it up and have recently been producing some quality stuff…
          Except for this one XD

  • zombie_eat_flesh

    Because, you know, a stool is just randomly lying on a sidewalk in Pasadena.

  • zombie_eat_flesh

    Why do I get the feeling like Smosh is missing what used to make them funny…?

    • Hyrule’s Hero

      Because, they’re running out of ideas. Ever since Sexting gone wrong, they’ve been running out of ideas.

      • Hylia Watson

        So I’m not the only one that’s noticed.

  • npatoray24

    smosh should just stick to the rap

  • http://www.triforcetalk9.blogspot.com/ Linkfan99

    Haha funny. I love their Zelda rap and their pokemon and real life. I guess this is kinda a combination of the two.

  • http://www.triforcetalk9.blogspot.com/ Linkfan99

    And as for the cussing, there’s really only “h3ll” and “@ss”.

  • Marinestar0

    Smosh has changed so much and I think because of their Zelda Rap video they made awhile ago, I expected a lot more from this one. Also, I think getting paid to make videos rushes creativity and humor making it sloppy and this video is a good example of that.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/bs88145 bs8814

    Saw this last week lol

    Actually, Hyrule is on Earth, maybe just an alternate earth. in Wind Waker it literally says “Earth”

  • diddyjungal

    Smosh needs to stop making zelda videos, the rap was decent, but this and all their other vids suck

  • baileygirl99

    XD that was hilarious!!

  • TheMightyDekuWarrior

    At the part were he said “I swear to kokiri forest” he should have said “I swear to hylia”. Would have made more sense, and would have been more funny.

    • OcarinaPlayerOfTime

      I FOUND IT! 9 months ago, a little deku named *censored cus honestly I don’t care* was born. He had a very happy life until his father was burned by the hands of the great deku king. He then went insane, got on the internet, named himself TheMightyDekuWarrior, and started posting on Zelda related, and sometimes Animal Crossing websites :3

      • TheMightyDekuWarrior

        I can’t believe you went back so far in my comments… But, yeah! How DARE you?! How did you even know my background in the first place?! GET OUT OF MAH LIFE!!!… But speaking more seriously, I’ve actually been on Zelda Dungeon alot longer than that, I went without an account for a long time. I was originally going to name myself simply “TheDekuWarrior”, but I forgot that I was better than everybody else so I put “Mighty” up in there.

        • OcarinaPlayerOfTime

          I’M ACTUALLY THE HAPPY MASK SALESMAN! ALSO YOU’RE NOT MIGHTY, I AM!

          • michkori

            Ah! Salesman! *hides* i like my money!

          • OcarinaPlayerOfTime

            YOU WILL BUY THE MARIO MASK!

          • michkori

            But i don’t wanna be an obese short plumber T.T *runs away*

          • TheMightyDekuWarrior

            You’d rather be a Deku, RIGHT?!

          • TheMightyDekuWarrior

            I thought you were an OcarinaPlayerOfTime? I don’t think the Mask Salesman can play the Ocarina, only the Invisible Piano.

          • OcarinaPlayerOfTime

            PLOT TWIST, I CAN PLAY BOTH!

  • Chromof Ylisse

    Kokiri Village? It’s Forest
