That's... NOT the old man...

You may already be familiar with the infamous commercial for the original The Legend of Zelda and might assume that the rap mentioned in the title above is somehow related. Not so.

A brand new rap paying tribute to the beginning of the Zelda series has recently been released, lyric written and preformed by The Adventures of Duane & Brand0.

Some might wonder at the creation of a rap based on a game nearly 25 years old, but this merely goes to show that even two and a half decades later, the original The Legend of Zelda continues to inspire.

Complete with 8-bit pixel animation and verbal banter between Link and Ganon, the video accompanying the rap is well worth the watching.

            {transforms into a mallet and smashes the poke-ball}

          • ChainofTermina

            {transforms again, this time into nuke}

          • Lol

            So you exploded and died?

          • Threw a Pokeball at the nuke before it detonated and contained the blast.

          • Joko tree

            Ganon shows up and grabs the Pokeball.

          • ChainofTermina

            Link shows up and defeats Ganon. And now Link has a pokeball with a nuclear explosion inside of it. and you know how pokeballs work, right? all Link has to do is say "Nuclear explosion, return!" and it will. so now Link has a re-usable nuclear explosion. oh yeah.

          • Joko tree

            Say goodbye to the bombmask and hello to the nukeball.

          • ChainofTermina

            it's the third evolutionary stage of Voltorb and Electrode.

      • I bet it'll be shown on the Kontraband site, which can be entered by the link below the video. I'll try that out and then come back with a more topic-based comment.

  • ????????????

    you su c k

    • whatever

      no YOU do.

  • dunno

    who said that???????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • He told you that you sucked, Troll, and I'm telling you to SHUT UP! We have no need for this idiocy. So just come on here and jot down something valid, ON-TOPIC, and don't abuse the internet anymore.

  • Aeffles

    First of all, this is a very old song. It was made a long time ago, and since Duane and Brand0 haven't been a band for about six to ten months now, it's not brand new in the slightest. It was only added to YouTube recently because Duane and Brand0 both have their own YouTube accounts now, so the videos are being rehosted. I reall suggest you check your information and sources before you just go around saying "brand new" things are "just released"

    • Guess what, Aeff. This is a Zelda site, so we know that the song is old, that it was made a long time ago. There's no need to insult our intelligence right off–or call us "noobs" if you just *think* we had no knowledge of that. Unless you were talking about the "brand new" blunder. Well, let me tell you something. No person is perfect, and even article writers are bound to slip sometimes. I know that Bastian will check his source next time and probably edit the error, but that still doesn't give you the right to call him a noob just because of this one gaffe.

      • mcdude910

        did he say noobs once?

        • Querulous

          Yep, today. Right below me, in fact.

  • Aeffles

    n00bs.

    • noob

      im a noob, dood

  • Aeffles

    And thanks for the -1's on the comments because you obviously know your information and sources very well.

    • No…DUH!

      Uh, yeah we do. And we haven't the patience for creep stalkers, otherwise known as trolls, on this site, so as they say here in Canada, Take Off, Eh? Btw, we aren't the noob here: you are. So learn to splel and learn your own source of information from something called the Bible–ever 'ear of it?

      *scoff* noob

    • Joko tree

      We know not to nark off others unlike you.

  • aka_noob

  • yanoit15

    wow great song sooooo funny!

  • NobleRath

    It's a shame they broke up ๐Ÿ™

  • Everything said was very logical. But, what about this? suppose you added a little content? I ain’t saying your content isn’t solid., however suppose you added a post title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean New The Legend of Zelda Rap ร‚ยป Zelda News – Zelda Universe is a little plain. You should glance at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create news titles to get viewers interested. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get readers excited about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could make your website a little bit more interesting.
