In this relic of the 1980s, a reject from “Revenge of the Nerds” and his denim clad buddy are hanging out on the couch talking about the latest Nintendo Newsletter. Well of course the geek is way ahead of the curve and already has this awesome new game, “The Legend of Zelda”. To best illustrate how awesome it is, he breaks into a rap. The rap is flat and painful, but it was another step in the genesis of geek-cool that would finally find its footing at the turn of the millennium.
Still listening to these lyrics its hard to believe that our people would ever be accepted in the “real” world:
It’s The Legend of Zelda and it’s really RAD those creatures from Gannon are pretty bad
Octoroks, Tektites, and Leevers too, but with your help our hero pulls through!
