When I first heard about The Zelda Marathon and their planned charity event, I’ll admit that I had my doubts. Zelda-related marathons of this sort aren’t exactly uncommon in our community these days, and a lot of them aren’t exactly what one might call “legit.” But after seeing the group’s first official promotional video, I gotta say: I was wrong. These dudes mean business. Why? 1) They shot it in widescreen. 2) They destroyed Slurpee in efforts to create more believable verisimilitude. 3) Dramatic slow-motion running scenes. 4) A cute girl got hit in the head with a vanilla ice cream cone.
Be there November 27th at 6:00 P.M when they attempt to run through The Legend of Zelda, The Adventure of Link, A Link to the Past, Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask, The Wind Waker, Twilight Princess for the benefit of Big Brothers Big Sisters St. Catharines – Thorold & District. We definitely need to hit that $5000 mark—not only for the charity, but so the Internets can finally have a video of some bro getting a Triforce symbol waxed onto his chest.
