Now this took me by surprise. Apparently this whole Robin Williams and Zelda deal is nothing new but this is definitely the first I’ve seen of it. I wonder what made Nintendo think that the guy who played in Mrs. Doubtfire would be a good spokesperson for the newest Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. I don’t know, it just doesn’t seem like a very good match. If anything, Robin might even make some people want the game less.
I also find it odd that this advertisement isn’t humerous at all, despite the fact that Robin Williams is a comedian. There is just so much wrong going on here. Weird advertisements aside, Skyward Sword will be available for Nintendo Wii on November 20th. Hit the break to check out the commercial.
