Oh, videogame-themed nerd rap. Will I ever tire of you? Probably not. While the dopeness of this rap does vary in quality from time to time, I definitely wanted to run it because 1) the costumes are awesome, 2) the locations and direction are also great, 3) I’m a sucker for nerdy back-ups dancers, 4) the Deku Tree stops by to bust a rhyme and 5) Navi has, truly, never been more awesome than she is in this video. Next time Nintendo remakes Ocarina of Time I say we start a petition to get Nintendo to change her dialog to ” HEY! LISTEN! Other fairy shit is slapstick.” Thanks to Luis for the tip!
Oh, if you’re wondering about DVD Day, there’s practically nothing but the complete Transformers: Beast Wars set, just now on Amazon instead of ShoutFactory.com, so I skipped. My apologies for any inconvenience.
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.
