Get a ‘Christopher Walkenthrough’ of ‘The Legend of Zelda’
Walkthroughs — guides which help players progress through a video game — are almost a necessity these days. But what if legendarily creepy/awesome actor Christopher Walken were to narrate a game guide for the 1987 role-playing classic ‘The Legend of Zelda’? Why, you’ve got a ‘Christopher Walkenthrough,’ of course.
Okay, so, Walken isn’t really lending his voice to this video. Instead, he’s being impersonated by actor Jason Stephens. Still, it’s mighty funny when pseudo-Walken describes main character Link as a “good Christian” intent upon “murdering innocent creatures and stealing their money.”
Naturally, most of the Walkenthrough has very little to do with the game. Instead, Walken riffs on a variety of other random things, including mortality, your dad’s sex life and the Jonas Brothers. What does this have to do with ‘Zelda’? Not a thing, and that’s what makes it great.
Fortunately, we’ve got several “Walkenthroughs” for you courtesy of GameSocietyFilms, including guides for ‘Minecraft,’ ‘Skyrim’ and ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.’ All of them are worth watching, even if you maybe torched your copy of ‘Rumble Roses’ (also below) long ago.
