Not too bad.

Dad should have handed the controller off to his son.

Has that guy really been using the same chair for 30 years?

No it's a little too casual for my tastes.

Great commercial.

No me gusta. Needed more Zelda II!

I think it's probably one of their worst commercials (at least for such an important title). It's not funny, it's not exciting, it's not captivating, it's not dramatic. Perhaps they figure die-hard fans are more than aware of the game and will purchase it no matter what, so their audience for this commercial is strictly those that are part of the non-core, aging Zelda crowd? I don't know. I'd rather have Europe's Williams duo commercial over this embarrassing nonsense. But what do I know.

@NoName


I agree with everything you said.

Lets face it..guys like us have it pre-ordered already..we don't need the commercial to sell the game to us. But that commercial sucked more then suck itself.

I think the idea was good but the execution was terrible... Fink, Fabz and I could do a better commercial with our pinky fingers. Fuck.

This.

I wonder why NOA didn't get the Robin-Zelda commercials. I would love to see this on my TV:


Man, that girl's cute! Plus, the commercial is actually funny and quirky. And it stars Robin Williams. Seriously, what is wrong with NOA?!?!

Wait, don't the Robin commercials air in America? Is this one all we're getting?

I like the commercial. I think its supposed to have that 'retro' feel to it. It could have been much better. Though, I agree the one with Robin Williams should be the main commercial, plus any Zelda commercial should be really exciting and uplifting.

Yea, whats up with using that same chair spanning 'x' amount of years? Is these some hidden meaning? At least the commercial is not as bad the the Mario Sunshine commerical.

I wonder who sits back and says, "Yes, this is the commercial that will make everyone want to buy the game!"

If you guys happen to see any more new commercials for SS please post them. I do not have cable, so the only ads I see are the ones you guys post on these boards or on other sites.

I think it's absolutely terrible.

Maybe it will grow on me, but all I see at the moment is a 45 year old Justin Bieber.

One second apart!

It was okay enough.
They should have hit a few more Zelda games along the way though.
Posted: 11/04/11, 05:18:00
That was obviously directed at the crowd that has no idea what Zelda is. Cringe-worthy stuff there.

I could be mistaken, but I didn't think the Williams duo commercials were going to air in the US. From my understanding American celebrities often do ads/commercials for various products to have them featured only in Japanese/European markets. Nicole Kidman, for example, was featured in a Brain Age commercial that aired only in Europe. My guess is that they are paid well for their work, and do not have to worry of being lessened stature wise, and overexposed, in the US for doing commercials.

@NoName It would certaintly help Zelda William's career, however. I don't know she existed before these commercials. Now, I would love to see more of her.
Posted: 11/04/11, 05:40:51
I almost fell asleep halfway through it.
Posted: 11/04/11, 06:12:54
I don't think they really needed the narrator. The same message could've been conveyed by just showing a kid playing NES, then older playing N64, and then older playing Wii with his son.

What was so bad about it? Was cheesy but most Nintendo commercials are cheesy. This didn't stand out as especially bad to me.
