I was looking around google video for my blog and I came across this little gem, apparently a Test Animation for a Zelda CG 'toon from DiC? Whatever it is it makes those cinemas from the CD-i games look like Citizen Kane. Enjoy.



...Oh, were you expecting the DS game? :)

Oh my. I did expect more about a new game, but this is hilarious. No way that this would ever air. And to finish it off, the black guy's voice. :') :lol

I wish I could find out where this originated. I saw this a few months back, but could never get a straight response.

I am not joking when I say I have just laughed for the past few minutes and am in tears.

"Man, this guy has more mouth than Robert McGee."

I also love when Ruto is pelvic thrusting toward the triforce. :lol :lol :lol :lol

Shamelessly copy and pasted

Well well well! Looks like our animations have reached more audiences than the one on IGN! And DOWNLOAD OF THE MONTH on Gametrash no less! (http://gametrash.com/download.php)

Greetings, everyone. About a month or two late, yes, but I just found this site. I am one of the co-creators of the aforementioned Zelda animations (actually I composed the music, somebody else handled the actual Maya-created animation).

I'm actually quite disappointed that some of you didn't jump to the right conclusion. First of all, the URLs in the first post of this thread link directly to my school's webspace (note the .edu domain? Yeah; big tipoff).

Apparently slapping the DIC logo on a video in Premiere convinces the whole Zelda community that DIC is actually the one responsible for this. Let's think this through, folks! Here's the story.

About two years ago, a user on IGN named Joe Cracker started posting that he had a Zelda script. He was an idiot, and thought he was getting it made into a movie. I (Cellius_18 on the IGN Zelda board; yes I do exist there and post occasionally still, if you doubt), Sexualburgerking and another user Orquiox conspired to mislead this guy into ACTUALLY THINKING DIC had taken on the project. We researched the original Zelda cartoon and found the producer's name, John Grusd. We created a fake Grusd email (johngrusd@yahoo.com) and misled Joe Cracker for the better part of a year. It was quite fun. During this time we produced TWO ANIMATIONS to convince him that DIC was actually making progress.

The abysmal quality of the animations (yes you fools, we are capable of far better) was supposed to be a not-so-subtle hint to Cracker that he was being duped. He didn't pick up on it. The dialogue is taken directly from his horrid "script," and we did everything we could in the animations to show how much of a joke it was. LOOKS LIKE HE'S NOT THE ONLY PERSON WE FOOLED.

Don't believe me? Go ahead, email the address that you see on Eian's back in the second animation (johngrusd@yahoo.com). Guaranteed one of us (Cellius, Sexualburgerking, or Orquiox) will reply. Or I suppose I could replace the links at the top of the page with bestiality porn, since it IS MY WEBSPACE YOU'VE HOTLINKED TO after all.

Of course, it is quite flattering to see that our project has migrated everywhere. I just can't believe so many people took it so seriously!

Anyone else notice how during Link's dance in video 2, he keeps cutting through Zelda with the Master Sword?

You can tell that that's a screencap from a Maya scene. I'm guessing some shitty animation student's abortion.

EDIT: For a prank the lipsync/facial animation is actually pretty good.
