Now, there’s certainly worse videos on the internet than three young men in the middle of undressing (dressing? I have no idea) while dancing spasmodically to the “Song of Storms” song from Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time, but… well… you know, this video is so fucking bizarre I lost my train of thought entirely. Just enjoy. Or not. It’s sort of freaking me out the longer I think about it. I think I’m going to have a cup of tea and lie down for a while. (Via Geekologie)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
