That Fruity Little Hat Kills Me

Comments (4)

Some of you are getting to know my brother through Twitter, which makes me smile. A lot. He's a fun kid. He is also as ridiculously emotional as I am sometimes. I used to follow him to the basement on hot summer days to watch him play video games, but he would chase me away in a violent fit whenever he started doing poorly. Literally, controllers would be chucked at my head, and I distinctly remember him trying to choke me at least once. (He was too little, so I just laughed as he tried to kill me. In hindsight, that didn't help the situation at all.)

Anyway, Adam is usually witty and jovial and quick to laugh, but he does possess quite a temper, which is why I was a bit frightened when he came stomping into my room with flames shooting out of his nostrils. It turns out that he was a skosh upset about what has turned out to be the best (in my opinion) April Fools joke of the year — the trailer for an upcoming Zelda movie. I have to give the kid credit, though... While a Zelda movie might not be a bad idea, that right there was a crime against humanity, video games, films, and your mother. Don't even tell me you liked Link's ridiculous hat, or you'll be waking up with an N64 controller lodged in your head.

That trailer was good for a laugh, at least. While we're on the subject of Zelda videos. It might be worth one's time to look up "A Heart For The Hero". Link goes to a shop to buy a heart, but has a bit of trouble communicating his needs to the shop keeper. Worth a watch.

Yeah...So I totally fell for that joke... I was the most excited ever when I saw the trailer. I was so excited, I showed my roommate and a few others on my floor who I knew would think the idea was as awesome as I thought. When I found out it was a joke, I became extremely upset. I have not told anyone else that it was a joke. Keeps me entertained to see the excitement when the subject comes up.

I have beat Zelda: Ocarina of Time four times in the past three weeks.

I.... don't ever remember trying to choke you. Throwing controllers, yes. I can't do that anymore, 'cause PS3 controllers are, like, $60 a pop. O_o But, man... that trailer.... freakin' ridiculous. It's probably healthier that I try to divert most of my anger into working out or writing (when I'm too lazy to work out, which is most of the time).

Dude, that trailer was awful. It looked like a made-for-TV film directed by Uwe Boll. I almost flipped when people on the internet were all pumped and like "It looks great!" Are you freaking kidding me?!

*sigh* People.
