The rather adorable songstress of the “Star Trek Girl” song is back, this time was a song about and sung by Navi from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I’d say it stands a decent chance of being the least annoying thing Navi has ever been associated with, although I appreciate that’s not an especially high bar. Much like “Trek Girl,” the song is pretty good, but the storytelling and production values have really shot through the roof in this one — meaning there’s actually “actors” “acting out” a “story” and she’s no longer standing in from of her bedroom wall. As always, I ask that you use a modicum of respect in the comments when discussing the song and singer, although if you happen to find her post-song credits especially… Navi-like, shall we say, I won’t begrudge it of you. Thanks to David R. for the tip.

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.
